Network security refers to the policies put into place that help to monitor network security and network security access points around the world. The largest factors to Network Security are the prevention of unauthorized access, modification, or misuse of a computer network and the information on that said network.
We must protect our computers and the data on them, just as we would our homes or businesses. We prevent and combat unauthorized access to networks by installing Firewalls and Antivirus software. Another aspect of preventing Unauthorized Access is the creation and use of a detailed password that consists of numbers, letters, (both lowercase and uppercase), and symbols. The most important, however, is the continued use of a Computer Network Security Management service like NetCertPro.
If you business has transactions located on your computer systems, that information can be modified by hackers. Hackers can modify any information on a network, from the account number to the transaction amount, nothing is safe if left unprotected. To combat this, we can use a various process of encryption techniques to prevent or hinder the access to such information.
Any information can be misused. In this case, the information theft can cause the misuse of the data. When data is misused, it could be information of your client's being sold by hackers to try to target their individual data on other networks.
