Is Your Wi-Fi Network Properly Protected?Cyber criminals can attack Wi-Fi networks by opening a portal through a server to access the network. If the portal lacks protective software, the hacker can access information about the company providing the connection, including customer personal data. Small and mid-size businesses are at a higher risk, as they typically lack the security resources to defend attacks. How do you know your Wi-Fi network has been hacked? Some symptoms include: • Frequent crashes • Files unexpectedly appear or disappear • Sudden, unexplained computer or network performance changes At minimum, protect your Wi-Fi network by doing the following:
- Purchase a secure network with an encryption service
- Change your network password frequently
- Avoid completing sensitive transactions over unsecure networks
- Limit those who you share your network key with
