The article shares advice from information technology (IT) professionals on topics related to IT in the U.S. For instance, Mark Bruhn, Indiana University's acting associate vice president for telecommunications in Indianapolis, Indiana, found the best way to secure his wireless network. Bruhn set aside Wired Equivalent Privacy technology in favor of a set of virtual private network servers that require end users to input a network identification and password to authenticate themselves. In addition, David Giambruno, director of strategic infrastructure and security for Pitney Bowes Inc. in Stamford, Connecticut, shares advice on how to approach patch management.
