Network Security is an expansive topic with far-reaching implications for individuals, organizations, and families. Security incidents impact productivity and can expose your private information to criminals or the competition.
Good security starts with protecting your computer(s) and private information from a broad range of threats including Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Malware, Grayware, and software exploits.
Using good anti-virus & anti-spyware software with current definitions and keeping your Operating System and Application Software up-to-date is only the beginning. A proactive security plan includes content filtering, password security, access controls, monitoring user activity for policy compliance, and disaster planning (backup & recovery).
Special attention needs to be given to Wireless Security if you allow wireless devices on your network. The consequences of having your wireless network breached include theft of your internet resources causing interruptions or slowing down your service, eavesdropping, or viewing, altering, and deleting private information on your computer. A rogue computer on your network could infect your machines with a virus. Even worse, a computer criminal could use your open wireless network to cover their tracks.
