This 101 is designed for those who may or may not have some tech skills but have very limited knowledge in regards to network vulnerabilities. Network security consists of the policies and practices used to control access in a network. One objective of network security is to maintain network integrity by preventing hacking, misuse or other unauthorized system changes. Another objective is ensuring that critical data is only accessed by those who are authorized.
