lean times, too, and in the face of ferocious
competition. A careful study of the vast majority
of companies that have been less successful than
these few superstars shows that they fall prey to
a number of common mistakes.
Hello, in this module we are going to discuss wireless networking. Specifically, we'll take a look at
how wireless technology works, how it is commonly deployed, and the security issues associated
with using it. Because wireless communications can penetrate opaque objects such as buildings, the
risk of someone accessing a private network increases markedly. With wireless, an attacker does not

(the most important single function of the timeline) and filter contextually rather than linearly
(by filtering content through the Tags).
