All the tools used in this report are key to maintaining a well-rounded secure network
apparatus. A lot of the tools heavily rely on the experience of the user. It is imperative proper
training and knowledge of how to use these tools is well understood by the user. Combined, the
tools and applications provide security baseline, defensive measures, monitoring, and
ransomware attack mitigation techniques. To be successful, the user must have a basic
understanding of how computers communicate. These tools and applications are extremely
helpful, but will produce no results if the user does not know what he/she is looking at.
