How to Prevent Network Security Breaches

An easy way to prevent network security breaches is to keep a close eye on your staff as they access the network. By constantly monitoring employees, and training staff in good network behavior, it can be hard to detect problems in the future.

Do not provide any personal information like passwords or usernames to employees.

Provide access only to those with a strong password. A weak password is a common cause of vulnerabilities to unauthorized use of the network.

Employees should not share confidential information that cannot be displayed publicly or encrypted in any way. Employees should not be asked to divulge passwords to unauthorized users. During the off-hours, make employees aware that they need to lock their computers when they are not using them. In addition, do not let employees turn on their personal wireless cards without the knowledge of your network administrator.

It is also important to teach employees how to use firewalls, for they play an important role in protecting the network security. For businesses, which have servers that need to be secured by your network administrators, it is a good idea to create a policy that restricts access to shared networks. This helps avoid accidental loss of data. Creating a policy that requires employees to configure their systems and to change passwords when they enter the network, is another way to protect it.

There are various ways to safeguard your network against unauthorized use. If a member of staff loses his or her laptop, replace it immediately. Never store password-protected laptops or other personal devices on the network.

Make sure you monitor the network at all times to find out if there has been a network security breach. Your network administrator can provide you with this information but do not rely on the information provided by your network administrator.

  • Do not forget that a good network security system is just as important as the network itself.
  • Most business owners assume that the solution to their network problems is simply to upgrade their current hardware.
  • The truth is that without proper management, good network security measures could be rendered useless.
