Wi-Fi networks have proven to be a convenience that helps us connect to our computers, while communicating with others via social networking or e-mail. We often view these networks as a convenience rather than a necessity. However, as with any convenience, there are risks associated with having Wi-Fi networks at our office or in our homes. The risk may be merely being exposed to the risks.

Your passwords

Having your Wi-Fi router password as plain as “password” will put all of your sensitive data at risk. Even having a simple password, if it is weak enough to be stolen, then all of your information is at risk. With a strong password, you don’t have to worry about others discovering your passwords or the authenticity of your authentication. Weak passwords, however, may still be vulnerable to a cracker.

Your user name

Each of your devices is attached to your user account on a Windows PC or Mac. Having your user name as the password may crack your password further, since it shows that you have taken some steps to secure your login experience. We suggest that you avoid using your birthday, your birthday (Y or X), or any other significant numbers in your user name.

Your location

Your Wi-Fi router identifies your location, so if you are in a small office or in a living room, it is likely that only you will be connected to the Internet. By using your Wi-Fi router as your only internet connection, you are increasing the security of your data and also of your computer, since your computer cannot be as vulnerable to intruder attacks while you are away from your office computer.

The router logs

When you first purchase a Wi-Fi router, you will be prompted to input in your network name and password. Then you will be given the option of creating a password that uses one of the random strings of characters that is generated every time you connect to the Internet.

The problem is that if a computer cracker uses your Internet connection to try and sniff for Clouds, then your cracker can sniff for your user name and password as well. Before you know it, your bank, PayPal and/or your online credit card service will have recorded hundreds of examples of your typical online buying habits.

As a result, your security online can be easily broken. Furthermore, a security risk assessment conducted by a professional engineer who is experienced with confidential computer networks and who understands your specific business needs can protect you against unwanted visitors. This report will explain how an engineer can use your Internet connection to help protect your business.

Further, if you conduct any of your computer security activities online, be sure to obtain the Enhanced Network Security (ENSSEC) software that is certified to work on computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

The controls

When you take your PC to get fixed, make sure that the technician includes ticks on the following controls:

TZOK – Control/data Zone of Knowledge (Knowledge database contributed by InfoSoft)

  • Control/data Zone of Knowledge (Knowledge database contributed by InfoSoft) SCADA – (Data Center Authentication) with Hardware Security Card
  • (Data Center Authentication) with Hardware Security Card PKI – (Public Key Infrastructure)

These controls should be used according to the following procedures:


All of the following topics should be discussed in a Bugsmasher session (Wireless Security,oe).
