Securing the network

December 20, 2011

I recently came across a blog article on “9 security controls you should add to your network right now“. I think this neatly summarises some good ways to enhance the security of a network and provide the ability to detect when an intrusion has occurred. I particularly think the idea of blocking outgoing traffic from many servers (e.g. web servers), preferably with alarms being sounded automatically when something attempts to make external connections, makes a huge amount of sense.
