Organizational Security (Networking, Firewall Management, Wireless security)
Network security is any activity designed to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data. It includes both hardware and software technologies. Effective network security manages access to the network. It targets a variety of threats and stops them from entering or spreading on your network.
Firewall management is resource-intensive and requires a high level of expertise to prevent unauthorized access and costly breaches. Devices must be provisioned, deployed, upgraded and patched to keep up with the latest threats. It's no longer enough to leave your security to auto-pilot.
Without adequate safeguards, wireless can open corporate networks to new attacks, and war driving and password cracking. To prevent Wi-Fi from becoming the weak link in your network's armor, it is essential to understand the business risks posed by wireless, countermeasures that can reduce those risks, and industry best practices for designing, deploying and monitoring secure wireless LANs.
