One of the most common information security best practices that I have found in all the above mentioned websites is to develop strong password protection for logging in / logging out of any system.

Although there were also numerous historical people who have contributed to the science of fingerprints, the selection of the three are due to their distinctive contribution to one another as the rest tend to overlap with their works. It is also a selection based on chronological discoveries. Marce llo Malpighi. Marcello Malpighi was an Italian physicist whose famous contribution was the Ã¢â¬Å"Malpighian Tubule System.Ã¢â¬ Marcello had studied anatomical studies and published books on anatomy. In one of his books, he illustrated the detailed ridge structure of the fingers.
