System security affects each person who has a networked computer. Whether on an isolated private network or connected to the Internet, the possibility exists for unauthorized users to break in to a machine or cause the machine to become unusable through a denial of service attack. They may also use the network to perform insertion (also known as man in the middle) attacks.
Even home computer users must, in this day and age, protect themselves by securing their systems.
