Second, there were very few computers in use, each of which was extremely valuable, important to its owners, and consequently closely guarded. 3 Medium-Size Computers. In the 1950s, smaller computer systems were developed with a very simple configuration; punched-card master files were replaced by punched paper tape and, later, by magnetic tape, and disk storage systems. The 1·6 BRIEF HISTORY AND MISSION OF INFORMATION SYSTEM SECURITY electromechanical calculator with its patchboard was replaced by a central processor unit (CPU) that had a small main memory, sometimes as little as 8 kilobytes,4 and limited processing speed and power.

There it was reconverted into electrical energy and passed on to the appropriate circuit, or recirculated if longer storage was required. In 1956, IBM introduced the Random Access Method of Accounting and Control (RAMAC) magnetic disk system. It consisted of 50 magnetically coated metal disks, each 24 inches in diameter, mounted on a common spindle. Under servo control, two coupled read/write heads moved to span each side of the required disk and then inward to any one of 100 tracks. In one revolution of the disks, any or all of the information on those two tracks could be read out or recorded.

End users did not expect to get a continuous flow of data from the information processing system, and delays of even a day or more were not significant, except perhaps with paycheck production. Information system security was hardly thought of as such. The focus was on batch controls for individual programs, physical access controls, and maintaining a proper environment for the reliable operation of the hardware. 4 1960s: Small-Scale Computers. During the 1960s, before the introduction of small-scale computers, dumb5 terminals provided users with a keyboard to send a character stream to the computer and a video screen that could display characters transmitted to it by the computer.
