The purpose of network law is to reduce risks. This can be done in several ways.
Research and development of network security.
Use of protocols and algorithms.
Focus on cloud and mobile security.
Another way that network law can prevent network crimes is to protect the supply chain. Supply chain disruption will bring great security risks. This is especially true when device changes are allowed. Protecting supply chain is the key to preventing cybercrime.
Human resources can also reduce risk. There are three main ways to do this:
Be aware of potential safety hazards for employees.
Promote ethical and realistic security mechanisms.
Recognize employees who may be at risk.
Information sharing is also a key strategy to reduce risk. The best approach is mandatory reporting. When businesses are victims of cybercrime, immediate reporting can reduce further threats. The United States promoted this through the 2014 network security information sharing Act (CISA).
Finally, businesses can use a strong security framework. A good framework consists of three parts:
Core: these activities enable enterprises to identify, protect, detect, respond to and recover from network threats.
Implementation layer. This describes how advanced the business security system is. These layers are partial, risk informed, repeatable and adaptive. Enterprises should strive for the adaptive layer.
Framework profile. This is a database where enterprises can record information about their policies. This may include concerns and plans for new cybersecurity.
Every network needs advanced security. This includes home networking. The most effective way to improve network security is to use the right technology. Network security technology includes the following contents:
Active equipment. Active devices can help the network handle excessive traffic. They can also prevent unauthorized traffic. These devices may include software based or hardware based firewalls, antivirus devices or software, and content filtering devices.
Passive equipment. The most common prevention device is intrusion detection device. These devices help identify harmful Internet traffic.
Prevention devices: many devices are dedicated to preventing network threats. These are called prevention devices. These devices can include network scanners and penetration testers.
Unified Threat Management. These are complete safety devices. They can include content filtering, firewall technology, and Web caching.
