Companies Still Not Locking Up Wi-Fi Networks
from the where-are-the-IT-staffers? dept
After years of stories about problems with WiFi security, you would think that corporate IT staff would realize that they need to properly secure their WiFi networks. It doesn't take that much work to make it pretty difficult for someone to break into a wireless network. However, 80% of networks at companies tested around the world apparently showed no security. Many of the companies tested were large multi-national companies and banks, and they were just as bad at not protecting their networks. The numbers sound quite high, but if they're true, IT staffers deserve to be fired. Still, I'm a bit skeptical of the numbers, since they are from a "wireless security company" who has incentive to pump up the numbers.
