II. Network System Security Recommendations In this report, I will include all of my network and system recommendations for the issues mentioned above. For the sake of the firm all of the recommendations mentioned in this document should be follow in order to improve the safety of the employees and clients of the firm. Ensuring the firm’s private data and confidential information will avoid any security backdoors that could affect the systems of the organization in case of incidents or cyber-attacks. It is essential to secure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of the customers’ information so that the firm will be able to operate to maximum standards at all times. We will start by limiting the Wi-Fi connectivity to all the users. This is a major vulnerability that could affect the firm because Wi-Fi networks are less secure than LAN network connections; therefore cyber criminals are known to target this system first. “Wi-Fi networks give the ability to threats outside of the building access to the private network. There are many different types of attacks used to gain access to Wi-Fi networks like Ad-hoc, Mac spoofing, and war driving “[1]. My recommendation in this case is that the firm relies on a LAN based connection and separate the Wi-Fi connection away from its internal network and systems. The Wi-Fi should be set with the proper secure measurements such as disable SSID, enable encryption, enable mac filtering, and strong password. Internal devices should be connected via CAT6 cable that come directly from the server room and the patch panel. Maintaining LAN based network connection will get rid of the vulnerabilities that Wi-Fi based networks encounter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
