Computer users are finding the Internet and the World Wide Web (or Web for short) extremely useful for browsing through information, publishing documents, and exchanging information. Web applications have become popular because of the availability of powerful personal computers (PCs) capable of high quality graphics, easy Internet access, and a simple hypertext markup language (HTML) and network protocol.
As a result, many organizations and individuals are becoming Web-aware. The Web offers all kinds of information, from research papers, to customer support and marketing information, to club calendars and family bulletin boards. A myriad of Web indexing and searching services allow readers to find what they're looking for. Organizations also use Internet protocols to support their internal networks (often called intranets).
Although the Web is used for other applications such as electronic commerce, the primary one is Internet publishing. This CSL Bulletin addresses general security issues related to the use of the World Wide Web, concentrating on risk management for Web readers and publishers.
