When computers emerged, blinking (metaphorically) from the depths of IT departments, they were exposed to predators everywhere. Viruses were introduced by floppy discs or even straight from the internet by unsuspecting users. If staff members happened to have computers at home there was a good chance they had poor or inadequate antivirus software and very little chance they had a home network with firewall. People working at home were a huge risk to the IT security of any organisation in the 1990s. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
