Threats against business networks are very common in todays businesses. Whether a hacker is attacking your systems from the outside, an employee is abusing privilege, a trojan or virus is randomly looking for security holes, or you suffer an accidental denial of service from poorly trained users, the result is the same; your business suffers and you lose revenue.
What is network security you ask? Network security refers to the authorization to access the data in your network.
These threats are:
- Viruses, worms, and Trojans
- Spyware and adware
- Hacker attacks
- Data interception and theft
How secure is your network?
Ask yourself the following questions about your network to determine how confident you are about your network security:
- Could a known virus penetrate my computer systems or network?
- Could a trojan program be installed on my file server that gives a hacker open access to my systems?
- Are the workstations and file servers on my network running the latest service packs and critical security updates?
- Is every system on my network running virus protection that is up to date?
- Is there a firewall installed on my network? Is it properly configured?
- Are my workstations adequately protected from an outside threat?
- Do I have a disaster recovery plan in place?
- If any data was destroyed can I trust that my backup AND restore are functioning?
- Do I know if confidential files are really confidential?
Answering "no" or "I don't know" to any one of these questions puts you at a higher risk for a possible security breach. For most businesses, a compromise of the integrity or confidentiality of the business would cause severe damage. And for smaller businesses and organizations a security breach could be catastrophic.
