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.

People working at home were a huge risk to the IT security of any organisation in the 1990s. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
