Network & Infrastructure Security
Network & infrastructure security refers to the measures taken to protect the hardware, software, and data that constitute an organization′s network and infrastructure. This can include measures to secure the physical infrastructure, such as servers, routers, and switches, as well as the virtual infrastructure, such as cloud-based systems and virtual private networks (VPNs).
There are a number of threats to network and infrastructure security, including malware, unauthorized access, denial of service attacks, and data breaches. To protect against these threats, organizations may use a combination of technologies and policies, such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and secure coding practices.
Network and infrastructure security is important because it helps to protect an organization′s data and systems from unauthorized access and attacks, which can have serious consequences, such as data loss, financial loss, and damage to an organization′s reputation.
