The sound is sampled using an ADC (Analog to Digital and (such as 01010011) called Convertor) stored as a binary value a . sample 0010 1011 0101 0101 Analog sound wave ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) Binary sample Sampling an Analog Sound Wave Digital sampling is and not continuous like analog waves. discrete (separate) To get the sound, highest quality many samples are taken to recreate the analog wave as . closely as possible Sample Rate The is the . sample rate number of samples taken per second It is measured in (kHz), for example CD quality is 44.1kHz (44,100 kilohertz samples per second). The , the as the digital data more . higher the sample rate better the audio quality closely resembles an analog wave ​ However, because for each individual sample. higher sample rates result in larger file sizes more data is stored A will result in a because the . low sample rate low-quality sound digital data does not closely resemble the original analog wave A will result in a because the . higher sample rate higher-quality sound digital data more closely resembles the original analog wave Improving Audio Quality Bit Depth Bit Rate The is defined as the . It is measured in ( ). bit rate amount of audio data processed per second kilobytes per second kbps The bit rate is calculated by . multiplying the sample rate and bit depth ​ Because the bit rate is the measure of the sample rate and bit depth multiplied together, the . the higher the bit rate higher the quality of the sound The is the number of bits . For example, a sample with a bit depth of 4 could be 0101 or 0111 or 1010. A sample with a bit depth of 8 could be 01010110 or 1010110 or 11001111. A common bit depth is . bit depth available to represent each sample 16 bits The higher the bit depth , the to be used for each sample. Therefore the . more bits are available quality is often higher as the wave more closely resembles an analog wave ​ The if the bit depth is higher, as . file size will also be larger each sample stores additional bits A short audio sample has a and a samples .

Data loss legal trouble identity theft privacy invasion fraud financial losses User Access Levels are used to particular files. Access levels only allow certain users to access and edit ' Read-Only ' access is when a user can only view a file and is not allowed to change any data . ​ For example, a teacher might set homework instructions as for students to view. read-only ' Read and Write ' access allows a user to read and edit the data in a file. ​ For example, a teacher might set an online workbook as access for students to fill in. read and write so that can view and change data. The more users who have access to a file, the more likely it is to be compromised. Certain users may also have to a file - when they can't view or edit it.
