Network Security guide for the home or small business network – intermission…



At this point I’ve exhausted all the topics on network and computer security that I was eager to cover. As things change/ ideas strike I may well add to this series. One direction I see it going is talking in detail about several network utilities and more advanced topics like looking into web site ownership, email header analysis, good topical books/etc.


Hopefully the series has been helpful. I can’t help but let it get involved because it’s an involved area. It’s not enough to tell people to use a firewall, run up-to-date antivirus and get windows updates. Phishing attacks prove that, social engineering attacks prove that. People need to develop the kind of “computer smarts” that will hopefully make each person the true “owner” of their machine.

Unfortunately I’m afraid as we see more specialized “computer appliances” security is going to be more of a problem and less of an addressed concern. Hopefully, with enough people being skeptical and thinking critically…. makers of such systems will be aware that it’s a valid and pressing concern and provide good ways to keep these specialized products as secure as possible.
