Good wireless security post



I found this one at The sunbelt blog, very good article referencing a talk on wireless network security by Xavier Ashe.


He highlights these trends:

* Wireless threats are increasing exponentially
* Tools are becoming increasingly available and easier to use…. For both good and bad
* Wireless risks and security a wireless infrastructure are misunderstood

He also provides a good overview of current security breaches/risks.

A Powerpoint Presentation is available and he covers it on his site as well.

Too many businesses (especially small businesses) take wireless network security for granted assuming they can run out to Best Buy, buy a wireless access point plug it in and everything is fine. It’s definitely worth being aware of the risks.
