Design and Implementation

Securing a network requires maintaining a high level of network security and a continuous cycle of efforts consisting of three main phases:

  • Planning a security policy that defines the security goals of the enterprise.
  • Implementing network security technologies in a comprehensive and layered approach so the enterprise does not rely only on one type of technology to solve all security issues.
  • Assessing the network security on a regular basis to ensure that the security policy is being enforced appropriately and ensuring that no irregularities have developed as the network evolves

Security Policy definition is a step in the phased approach taken by Sharper Technology Consulting Services.

If your company does not have a written security policy, we can still assist you by doing a short consulting engagement to document the managements current understanding of the security posture the company wants to take.

Best Security Practices

Sharper Technology recommends the following Best Security Practices for secure networks:

  • Security policies must be able to be implemented through system administration procedures, publishing of acceptable use guidelines, or other appropriate methods.
  • Security policies must be enforceable, and if prevention is not technically feasible, policies must outline appropriate sanctions.
  • Security policies must clearly define the responsibilities of users, administrators and management.
