Secure Network

When you design a secure network, remember to design a system in depth. At the center of the "security onion" is the data that you intend to protect. Your security design should consider personnel, administrative, operational, software, and hardware security measures. It starts with hiring trustworthy individuals. Using multiple layers of security, such as WPA, 802.1X, and IPSec provides high levels of security but introduces complexity and increases costs. So do your homework, and implement only the necessary and sufficient control mix.
