We have all heard the stories about black hat hackers, breaking into big corporations and/or home networks. So its understandable most users are worried about the Internet and their online details such as bank accounts.
Securing your Internet generally involves protecting your personal and/or business network from:
- External hackers/viruses getting into your personal and/or network.
- Internal viruses that could then open up your network for
external hackers to get in, via exploiting your Internet rounter. An
internal virus could come from a visitor laptop that is infected
with a worm virus
- Wireless intrusion that would allow hackers (located just
outside your building or home) to gain access to your network, which
allows the wireless hacker to:
- Use your Internet bandwidth for their needs (e.g. downloading large files).
- Monitor your wireless activity (e.g. what pages you are
looking at on your wireless laptop, e.g. Bank Website, Facebook).
- Release a worm virus that could spread in your network and
potentially exploit your Internet router, allowing external access.
- Educating users what tools they should be using and how to use
them correctly, to avoid them downloading hidden virus. A hidden
virus can come from visting a websites, download files, and reading
