Wireless Security Measures, Privacy attacks, Policies
In the recent years home wireless threats have become extremely common. In this study we are going to review the risks and types of attacks users should be aware, when using home wireless networks. We are going to determine which type of network is more secure, and how can users protect themselves from privacy attacks.

Cyber criminals can simply park down their van outside the person's home and see their screen perfectly. It is very scary; still not enough advice is available from network providers.
In the below study we are going to review wireless networks in general, as well as different security measures, companies should use. By the end of the study we are going to look into policies and procedures, and determine the weak points, causing the most risks. We will finally analyse the security risks, and their consequences.
