Network Security Training

Network security is any system, device, or action designed to protect the safety and reliability of a network and its data.

Organizations invest in network security to protect their internet-connected systems and networks from cyber criminals or a network virus.

The focus of network security is generally targeted at protecting files, documents, and information from those types of attacks. This is commonly done through authentication in the form of a username and password, but it can also employ other tools like firewalls, antivirus programs, and virtual private networks (VPNs) to protect the network’s information.

The benefits of network security are substantial such as enhancing client and consumer confidence, and it protects your business from the reputational and legal fallout of a security breach.

There’s also the compliance issue. These days, network security isn’t necessarily “just an option” for organizations. Effective network security helps a business stay compliant with governmental and business regulations, thus avoiding potentially stiff fines in the event of a data breach.

There’s also the “big picture” benefit of network security that’s often overlooked by organizations. In reality, effective network security allows for a more modern workplace by allowing employees to work securely from any location using VPN.

Network security typically consists of three different controls: physical, technical and administrative.

Physical security controls are designed to prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining physical access to network components such as routers, cabling cupboards and so on. Controlled access, such as locks, biometric authentication and other devices, is essential in any organization.

Technical security controls protect data that is stored on the network or which is in transit across, into or out of the network.

Administrative security controls, on the other hand, consist of security policies and processes that control user behavior, including how users are authenticated, their level of access and also how IT staff members implement changes to the infrastructure.

Analysts often point out that there are many layers to consider when addressing network security across an organization. Attacks can happen at any layer in the network security layers model, so your network security hardware, software and policies must be designed to address each area.
