Abstract

Security considerations are a priority when moving information over a network. Development of wireless networks has greatly increased productivity, but magnified security vulnerabilities. Through research and consultation, this project assured the security of wireless network systems planned for the Hanover Insurance Group concerning wireless within the campus , remote wireless connectivity, and Blackberry communication devices. The outcome of this project included identification of solutions best suited to mitigate risk, a guide to configurations and policies for use.
