Tech Thursday: Protect Your Data

Is your wi-fi network secure?
Is your wi-fi network secure?
Almost all internet ready laptops, video game consoles, digital audio players and smart phone have a Wi-Fi connection. (Wi-Fi (pronounced wye-fye) is a trademark of the Wi-F i Alliance) So, how secure are you? The Wi-Fi Alliance has launched of a campaign to urge computer users to set-up their routers and devices to use WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) on all their wireless Wi-Fi equipment.

Over the years, Wi-Fi security has gone through some changes and WP2, which has been around for a few years, is the latest and greatest in Wi-Fi security,” Kelly Davis-Kelner of the Wi-Fi Alliance said in this podcast interview.

WPA2, which offers government-and enterprise-grade security, is available in all products that the alliance has anointed as “WiFi Certified.” The security standard replaces the original WPA and has stronger security than WPA and other protocols, including WEP (Wired Equivalent Protocol), which is still an option with most routers. WEP was introduced in 1997 and was largely supplanted by WPA and WPA2.

Let me suggest you check out the link below for information on this at the Wi-Fi Alliance page on the web. Click on the media tab at the top of the page, and then go to their newsroom for more.
