Analyse Hardware The hardware that I am using shall be a monitor, a mouse, a keyboard and a central processing unit, (CPU). I shall also be using a printer.

The keyboard is also input devise that shall be used to put information into the central processing unit.

Another way for computers to protect themselves from viruses is to backup files. But if you want to have a really safe backup, it is a good idea to save the copy onto a separate network.

Files can also be protected by using passwords, and restricting access. A good way of protecting a file is to save a copy onto a hard copy such as a memory stick or a floppy disk. Encrypting files is very useful as it can stop people from viewing your data who are not authorised, only users that have key codes can view the data.
