Improving the Security of Your Residence
A general definition explains security as resilience against or to have certain freedom from a particular external opposing force. Security can also be defined in other words as a protection from any external dangerous forces. Apart from that, the term security has other ways in which can be used to put things into certain perspectives: for example, the availability of essential goods (like food security), absence of lack (financial security), containment (secure room), resilience from potential harm or damage (such as secure foundations), state of mind (such as emotional security) and secrecy (such as secure communication through a telephone line). Security may be used as a word that refers to systems or acts that have the obligation to provide any kind of security, for example, security forces, security cameras, cyber security system and so on.
Beneficiaries or referent of security are like people and social groups, objects, ecosystems, institutions and any other phenomenon that is prone to unwanted changes brought about by the environment. One cannot really know the degree of how secure something is because perception of security varies. For instance, individuals take their money to the bank for safe keeping but few know that cybercrime is real. Most of the time the money is safe but to some extensions not so much especially if the back has a weak or outdated security system. Also a farmer who has invested in poultry farming may provide everything to their livestock starting from food and water to vitamins and vaccines, but a crucial bird virus may come and take out most of their livestock if not all it. The poultry is not truly secure because if the bird virus happens, which rarely does, it will take a great toll on the farmer.
It is good to know that is it not really secure just because there is a security system in place. Take for example an antivirus for a computer, if you think that having more than one antivirus in your computer is better, think again. If there are two antiviruses in a computer chances are they will not work properly, it will be like forcing two drivers to drive the same vehicle at the same time which is very impossible in so many levels. There are ways that are taken to change the perception of security and you will not tamper with security system itself. For example, if a home owner puts a sign outside that shows that there are presence of security cameras everywhere then it will repel any intruder that comes. Even if the cameras are not in good working condition the tactic is still superior.
The right measures for security should be followed the best way possible for it is very vital aspect in our lives every day.
