A secure and safe network allows a user to perform various operations without the tension of data being corrupt. The secure network has many issues and apprehension which need to be addressed before you hand over your network to other users.
Basic Ingredients of a Secure Network Design
First of all a secure and safe network is always preservative, meaning it does not allow the data to get corrupt. The confidential and sensitive data should be protective in such a way that not even a single data file is lost. Secondly the security measures and security systems must be there at all times. All the security measures should be effective and efficient. Security measures should commensurate the size of the organization. Before deploying any network it must be assumed that a network is always at the attack of the intruders. The network security processes must be upgraded with the passage of time. Any network must be perpetually managed and monitored in order to make it secure at all times.
For designing a sound network free of errors and security risks it is necessary to first conduct the risk analysis for any network. The risk analyses has three broad dimensions like what is the value of your network and information, defining the possible vulnerabilities in your network and last but not least try to estimate the loss of system in monetary terms. It is important to analyze that how critical is it your network and the value of the sensitive information contained in it. Secondly analyze the risks and threats which your network can possible face, for example your network should have strong back up support system, it should posses strong encryption techniques and intrusion detection methodology. Also make sure that if any of the defined risks becomes a reality. Are you capable enough of bearing the loss and covering it afterwards? This careful consideration would be a burden initially but would benefit you in the long run.
A Secure Safety Policy for Network
A secure safety policy has many phases. First step is to identify the needs of your network system. Some important needs of a secured network are the overall security of the network according to the size and type of information contained in it. In order to implement the security plan properly draw a rough sketch or work on your idea more before time. Make a list of any flaws that can occur. While the plan is being carefully implemented analyze whether or not you have been successful in dealing with network security risks in reality. For example while an engineer is working on project is he able to produce a negative response to the hackers call or his fake software. All do a market search to find out for you a reliable anti virus software. The design verification is an important step in your network security policy. This would help you to identify any feasibility flaws before the completion of the plan. Also experiment with your system by becoming an intruder and try to hack your own system. In this way you would be sure how does your system deal with the circuit gateway. When the network is established and installed properly check theoretically the set of activities you’re going to perform. Here it must be noted that the process of up gradation of network security tools is a long term and ongoing task. It does not end with feasibility report of the network. Next is the stage of operating the network and identifying the weaknesses and strengths of the network. No network is perfect from its first day of operations. Network has to undergo changes and improvements even every month just to make it more reliable and secure.
