The most effective way to prevent network security threats is to avoid them. For that reason, network security efforts are primarily intended to prevent threats from access the network and its data. We require complex passwords and multi-factor authentication for even more identify protection, we teach users to recognize phishing and how to respond. We ensure our software is updated and we use firewalls to prevent unwanted traffic. We also set our web browsers to protect our privacy and help us avoid unsafe sties, and these are all lessons we encourage students and colleagues to follow as well.
