Another helpful piece of advice that Vakil noted was, when using Internet browser windows, to check the address line to see if the “http” is replaced with “https” and to look for a small padlock in the status bar at the bottom of the browser window (Vakil, 2005). This will tell you if the web site you are accessing is secure. It is also recommended that a consumer use a personal firewall and the most up-to-date virus protection software (Breeding, 2005). Based on my research I concluded that if consumers use the most up-to-date and secure wireless network protection, they can connect to their wireless network and conduct business safely and confidently. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I would like to thank Dr. Vikki French for giving me the insight and instruction that I needed to complete this paper. I would also like to thank my Parents, Duane and Donna Bradley, my Fiancé, Kris Mason, my son, CJ Bradley, and my daughter, Charity Hutchinson, for their unending support and understanding while I spent countless hours researching articles for and writing this paper.
