Five Best Practices for Securing Enterprise Networks
In today's digital age, enterprise networks are a critical component of any organisation's infrastructure. However, with the increasing number of cyber threats, securing these networks has become a top priority for IT professionals.
In this blog post, we will explore the five best practices for securing enterprise networks.
- Implement Strong Authentication Mechanisms: Strong authentication mechanisms such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and password policies can help prevent unauthorised access to enterprise networks. MFA adds an additional layer of security by requiring users to provide more than one form of authentication, such as a password and a code sent to a mobile device.
- Regularly Update Software and Patch Vulnerabilities: IT teams should periodically update their software and patch vulnerabilities to ensure their networks are secure. Cybercriminals can exploit outdated software and unpatched vulnerabilities to gain unauthorised access to enterprise networks.
- Use Encryption to Secure Sensitive Data: Encryption can help protect sensitive data from being accessed by unauthorised users. Enterprises should implement encryption technologies such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to secure data in transit and use encryption for data at rest.
- Regularly Monitor Network Activity: Regularly monitoring network activity can help detect potential security threats early. Enterprises should implement network monitoring tools that can detect and alert IT teams of any suspicious activity on the network. This can help IT teams take immediate action to prevent a security breach.
- Provide Ongoing Cybersecurity Training: Cybersecurity training is essential for all employees, not just IT professionals. Enterprises should provide ongoing training to employees to ensure that they are aware of the latest cybersecurity threats and best practices. This can help reduce the risk of employees inadvertently introducing security vulnerabilities into the network.
