Networks are the arteries of modern business and are vital for sharing information and communication both inside and outside the organization. In today’s fast-changing and often risky business environment, it is critical for IT to effectively secure systems – a process that is both costly and time-consuming. At the same time, IT managers are expected to enhance worker productivity and implement new technologies that drive competitive advantage for the business.This project describes how, by adopting an organized approach to security, IT managers will spend less time cleaning up messes and more time helping their organization meet its goals.This project will also look at some history of networking, as well as an introduction to TCP/IP and internetworking.
We go on to consider risk management, network threats, firewalls, and more special-purpose secure networking devices. This will help me to identify and evaluate the network security needs of the company in question.Objectives1.
