What Are The Threats Facing My Wireless Network?
Most organizations today have some form of wireless network, which offers convenience and brings additional security risks that need to be addressed to protect sensitive data. While real-world physical security breaches require attackers to be on-site to gain physical access, wireless networks can be compromised remotely.
Another threat to wireless network security is assuming that enabling wireless connectivity within an organization is the same as deploying a wireless network. The differences in these tasks often lead to improperly configured environments which can impact employees' productivity, network security, or data present in the environment. This makes wireless access points an easy attack vector for attackers to gain access to your network.
