Time for a Security Review!

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

This week, it was announced that the Monster.com website was attacked by Hackers (for more info see “Hackers jack Monster.com, infect job hunters“).

This, once again, reminds me that everyone one of us who is responsible for a network take some time and review our network security. Hey – why not make it a New Year’s Resolution?

If you aren’t familiar with the Cisco IOS but want to review your security, here are some links to consider (all articles or videos that I have written):

VIDEO: Harden your Cisco Router with IOS ACLs
How to Configure Passwords to Secure your Cisco Router
Configure SSH on your Cisco router
How to be notified when you Cisco router configuration has changed
Cisco – Improving Security on Cisco Routers

And, finally, one more (not by me):
NSA Router Security Configuration Guide

All the Best to You,
