Security Best Practices

It’s best to tackle the items on the To Do List in the order they’re listed, and the very first is View Security Best Practices. This is not mere happenstance. Implementing and maintaining the best security practices are the most crucial tasks on a network. Click Start next to View Security Best Practices to open Security Best Practices help.

Security strategies are of three types:

  • Protecting your network against external assault in the form of hackers and malicious code.

  • Protecting against internal threats. Internal threats are more likely the result of accidents than malice, but it’s necessary to protect from both kinds.

  • Monitoring the network for security issues and keeping current on security information.

Completing the To Do List configures some of all three elements.
