Network Security Checklist

Cover
Every business should have a written (and thoughtfully prepared) network security plan in place. A thorough policy will cover topics such as:

  • Acceptable use policy, to specify what types of network activities are allowed and which ones are prohibited
  • E-mail and communications activities, to help minimize problems from e-mails and attachments
  • Antivirus policy, to help protect the network against threats like viruses, worms, and Trojan horses
  • Identity policy, to help safeguard the network from unauthorized users
  • Password policy, to help employees select strong passwords and protect them
  • Encryption policy, to provide guidance on using encryption technology to protect network data
  • Remote access policy, to help employees safely access the network when working outside the office
