Compromising Wireless Networks

Many companies have switched from wired to wireless systems, compromising their security posture. Wired systems are often easier to protect than wireless networks, while WiFi networks are prone to flaws due to poor implementation. Many companies also fail to do a complete risk analysis, which implies that vulnerabilities go unnoticed and unaddressed. Wireless network attacks are frequent due to these security weaknesses and the ease with which they can be exploited.
