    Default What all security measures I have to adopt?

    Hi all.. The network of our company involves a multi-tier system and security is becoming a complex issue. We have recently done encryption and SSL for the transmission of sensitive information of our company from a cyber security solutions in Toronto. Is that good enough? Did you think any other security service should be included in this? Please share your knowledge

    As far as network security, there are many issues to cover. One of the most important is to train your people on good
    security practices. The best technology can't protect your organization from insider spillage (accidental or intentional).

    Note: The networking category is for Java questions as they pertain to networking. Do you have such a question?

    This.
    You really need to find a proper security forum if you want a decent answer to this question.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    The majority of security problems come from internal sources. Read: all your employees are idiots.

    Fun exercise 1:
    Have a friend imposing as some IT provider call your boss telling him that he needs to check his VPN turboflaps security flux capacitor. See if he can social engineer his way to the username and password of your boss, or better get him to run TeamViewer and screenshot his desktop. I am pretty sure that will get you the necessary budget for training the company's employees. Have your boss sit at the front row.

    Fun exercise 2:
    - Register a random domain
    - Slap a rough copy of your company's website on it
    - Send out a phishing email from a random address to all your employees with a link asking for credentials
    - Add a link which you can monitor
    - See who clicked the link
    - Collect all the names
    - Everybody on that list is required to take a Security 101 course of three days.
