Wireless Security Assessment provides protection against would-be wireless network attackers. Here’s how Mindfire’s WiFi Security Assessment works:
Back up data properly
Data is highly valuable to any company. By backing up your data, you can help defend against ransomware.
Inform your employees
It is important to educate your employees about the risks and dangers of security breaches to lessen the chances of them happening.
Use complex passwords
It is crucial to update passwords regularly, never recycle them, and ensure they are both complicated and unpredictable. This is a hugely important security measure.
Attackers can access your data by breaking into your network, so to make this far more challenging, secure every device in your network. This can be done by checking that your wireless traffic has encryption enabled.
A powerful way to avoid breach attempts is to ensure you constantly update your operating system as well as application software.
Develop a breach response plan
Having a breach response strategy in place helps to ensure a fast response if a breach should occur. This can stop attacks from passing undetected.
Install a centralised firewall
Firewalls act as an obstacle between networks with varying degrees of trust. Keep your firewall on at all times to protect against attacks.
Utilise antivirus software
To prevent attackers from taking or destroying data assets, install and keep updated antivirus, anti-malware, and antispyware software on your server.
Encrypting data is a great way of rendering data useless if stolen. Therefore, ensure you use encryption to diminish the damaging consequences of a breach.
Mindfire identifies wireless APs within certain boundaries. We then test access to the wireless network from inside your company and then also locate APs outside of the perimeter that may put you at risk of a cyber-attack.
We examine how effective the security controls of your organisation are by looking at the network structure and operational requirements. Mindfire assesses numerous facets of WiFi security, such as password controls, network encryption, authentication equipment, and settings for broadcast.
While our first two stages certainly strengthen a wireless network’s security, it is also essential to see how strong your security truly is by emulating an attack. This way, we can determine if your network is likely to be breached and deem the effectiveness of your security. Examples of wireless attacks that we may simulate include WPA(2) Pre-Shared Key (PSK) brute force and WEP replay.
To decrease the effects of a security breach, it is vital that sensitive services and assets are isolated from network users. Mindfire's experts will try to gain entry to systems within corporate LANs (or WLANs) as a guest to see if an attacker could use a compromised WiFi network as a springboard for a security attack.
There will also be some penetration testing that will be undertaken to clarify the extent of any wireless vulnerabilities, but disruption is minimal. Upon completion, you will be given a report of wireless weaknesses and potential ways to resolve them. Mindfire’s team is also available for further consultation should you require any more help or advice.
