In every IT system security is one of the most significant aspects as it protects those systems from unauthorised users and keeps people’s privacy.Security can be passwords , finger prints , face recognition and fire walls which is used to restrict access to machines, facilities and systems.Although we do trust some of the most efficient IT systems in the world they happen to have some serious issues concerning security.Those problems could be either those systems give access to authorities as the government or even unauthorised facilities .It can also be that one of those systems is hacked which is rare these days but it did happen recently with one of the most successful companies world wide ‘’ Apple ‘’.

Apple company designed a system called iCloud , a system which backs up your personal files and photos automatically to an account which could only be accessed by the client’s password .The service provides its users with means to store data such as documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, Macintosh or Windows devices, to share and send data to other users, and to manage their Apple devices if lost or stolen.It also provide the user wireless back up directly to iCloud .Moreover , it acts as a syncing device for emails , calendars , bookmarks and games .Another thing is that you have the opportunity to share your media with people but only with your permission. icloud was quite helpful until it was hacked 2 years ago.The hackers didn’t only invaded people’s personal privacy but also exposed extremely personal photos of 50 female celebrities which was totally unacceptable.Apple was the one blamed not the hackers and that did put the company under distrust. Businesses are a big part of this as business men use iCloud for backing up their files which makes their VIP work and files all under huge menace.Education is also affected as most of the schools recommend using apple devices for their teachers , students and iCloud being hacked means that the system doesn’t work efficiently which would affect the learning process.
