Centralization is a way to organize a system. This organizational strategy is a lot like it sounds; it involves taking all the information and power required to operate a system and putting it in one central place. An example of a centralized system is the human body. The brain is at the center of this system and has power over it. Without the brain, the human body doesn’t work. Because all of the power in a centralized system is kept in one place, the whole system is vulnerable to an attack on that central point.
