Wireless Security Basics

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

All organizations must review their security policies and procedures regarding mobile, remote access and wireless technology, which continue to fall short of security and privacy standards. With an expanding workplace and the increasing number of mobile agents, companies should incorporate policies and educate employees on:

Secure wireless usage at work;

Wireless usage at home that may link to the company network;

Strong password requirements (not a birth date or child/pet name);

Encryption, which should be turned on;

Privacy and security threats due to lost mobile/wireless devices; and

Regulatory privacy and security requirements (HIPAA and GLBA).
