Securing Wireless Networks

Oct 12, 2016 | Business, Cyber Security

Undoubtedly, Wi-Fi has made it very easy for organizations to connect to the Internet from a number of devices, such as desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. While Wi-Fi networks are certainly more convenient than wired networks, Wi-Fi networks do pose a greater security risk. Here are a few tips that will help you secure your organization’s Wi-Fi networks.

Cyber SecurityOpen the Router’s Settings Page

In order to secure your business’ Wi-Fi networks, you need to access the settings page of the router. You can accomplish this (in most cases) by entering “192.168.1.1” into the web browser. However, you should check the user manual, as the process of opening the settings page is different for some routers. You may need to enter a default username and password from the user manual to access the settings page.

Create a Unique Password

Once you’re logged in, you should change the default username and password to something less obvious and more secure. This will limit the ability of other people to access the router. Make sure you keep the new username and password in a safe place to ensure that you will always be able to maintain the desired security settings.

Change the Network’s SSID Name

Another way you can make your organization’s Wi-Fi networks more secure is by changing the SSID name. In many cases, the default name of the network is the brand name of the router. You should change the SSID name to something more obvious so that employees know exactly which network to connect to. After all, accessing sensitive information on the wrong network can be a major security concern.
