In this lesson you will learn the importance of securing your AV network and/or your AV hardware. While IT departments are responsible for setting and implementing security policies, network security is everyone’s responsibility. Many AV devices have potential vulnerabilities that need to be addressed in a secure network environment. If an unsecure aspect is exploited, you will be held accountable. Starting with AVIXA’s standard for network security, we will explore accessibility, authorization, password policies, risk analysis, encryption, testing procedures, physical and logical topology impact, and other security-related topics.
