Windows Defender Firewall

Hello. Apologies for the delay in sending out this month's newsletter. We've been dealing with an unexpected death in the family.

I'll be brief again this month. I know you are all busy. I've put together a new article covering the Windows Defender Firewall

When you think about the different types of network traffic that accesses your computer; Web Browsing, Applications, Games, E-Mail, etc., there is ample opportunity for malware techniques to infiltrate your devices, including phishing attempts, spoofing and ransomware.

Therefore, this month's article focuses on the more complex of security tools, and likely the one that you are most unfamiliar with. We tend to leave the Firewall to its own devices, which is usually fine, but it's worth understanding this tool, so you can get the best out of it.

We start with an overview of the Windows Defender Firewall, such as what it is and what it does. We then look at its setup and configuration.

We then explore how you could change the Firewall settings, and touch on the best practices for setup and security, such as the "Shield's Up" technique.

Windows Firewall Logs are also covered.

Please take a look at the article and let me know what you think. If it can be improved, please contact me using the link below with your suggestions.
