Enterprise Networking Mag | Friday, November 30, 2018

Much hype has been made concerning aging government IT networks, but adequate consideration has not been paid to the maturity of those networks. Modernizing legacy networks is vital but at the same time, ensuring that their infrastructures are mature to hold on to the changing security requirements is equally important. IT professionals must be confident about their networks thatt any kind of threats can be addressed swiftly, despite the age of their network components.

Building a mature network can be a difficult task, but considering the policies and steps IT professionals employ to implement network security is also important. Understanding the maturity of your own security model is the key to fight against any kind of coercion.  With the increase in awareness of threats and compliance frameworks at the federal government and industry, levels have produced a call for assessing on the willingness of the critical infrastructure supplier via cybersecurity capability maturity models.

Meanwhile, amateur employees are not up to pace on the most recent strategies used by hackers, such as homograph attacks. IT executives must begin inclusive security training for all professionals to make them aware of the tactics used to penetrate networks and also how they can help prevent attacks. However change is an intrinsic part of an IT manager's job, and the skill to handle change is crucial.

We are in an era where industries are more digitally advanced than ever, and as technology progresses, organizations’ security stance must be improved as well. With the exact blend of policies, tools, and the right mindsets, companies can profitably hoist their networks’ maturity levels to comfortable points.
