Importance of network security evaluation

It’s a good idea to evaluate and summarize the security status of all network aspects, which can be useful when accessing, troubleshooting, upgrading, and securing the network. Here’s a list of areas to get you started:

  • Firewall
  • LAN
  • WLAN
  • VPN
  • File servers/shares
  • Admin Passwords
  • User Passwords
  • Antivirus
  • Web Filtering
  • Antispam
  • Data encryption
  • Data backup

In addition to the traditional IT security aspects, think of the physical security of the network and devices as well. For instance, ensure the wiring closet and any components throughout the building (like wireless access points and even Ethernet ports) are secured from the public and even non-IT staff.
