Protecting your home network

Wi-Fi networks (sometimes called by their technical name, 802.11) allow people to wirelessly connect devices to the Internet using smartphones, laptops, tablets, and gaming consoles.

However, many home Wi-Fi networks are configured insecurely, allowing strangers or unauthorized individuals to easily access your home network or anonymously abuse your Internet connection. To ensure you have a safe and secure home Wi-Fi network and learn a few simple steps you should take, visit our cyber security newsletters.
