Your network is like the digital front door to your home or business. Just as you lock your physical doors, it’s crucial to secure your digital space too.
Network security is the practice of protecting your network from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. This includes protecting your network from Cyber Attacks, such as malware, denial-of-service attacks, and man-in-the-middle attacks.
There are a number of things you can do to protect your network from unauthorized access and attacks, including:
- Use a firewall. A firewall is a network security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic. Firewalls can help to block unauthorized access to your network and to prevent malware from spreading.
- Use intrusion detection systems/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS). IDS/IPS systems monitor your network for suspicious activity and can generate alerts or block traffic if they detect a threat.
- Use strong passwords and enable multi-factor authentication (MFA). Strong passwords and MFA can help to protect your network devices and accounts from unauthorized access.
- Keep your software up to date. Software updates often include security patches that can help to protect your network devices and software from known vulnerabilities.
- Educate your employees about network security. Your employees are your first line of defense against network attacks. Make sure they are aware of common threats and how to protect themselves.
