My wife & I work from home (with two separate businesses, both in their early stages) and we have two teenage kids who represent the biggest risk. I am concerned about threats to our business data which is stored on a NAS (eg Cryptolocker) and wanted to improve security. We aren't exactly MI5, so precautions have to be commensurate with our circumstances. I have a detached backup, so our world wouldn't end, just trying to avoid a possible major headache.
I have some network knowledge and can work stuff out. I was wondering whether putting the kids on a separate network would contain any malware they might get? I would think that it would, but then I don't have an in-depth knowledge in networking. We would share one internet connection, but I have various routers & an ADSL modem.
I think this question answers mine - I have kids in the workplace but can't do anything about that! Kids + older computers + our network at the office: Security risk?
At present everything is connected through the ADSL Modem-router & a 10 port switch. I have a Vigor ADSL modem & a Netgear N600 I wanted to use with dd-wrt for the kids. What I'm not sure about is how I can connect the modem (only one port) & routers (each with 4 ports), if that is possible? Will this work?
