Which IPS should be there?

Last Modified: 2016-11-18
I'm trying to track down a hacker that has accessed my network & devices and been harassing me. But to be honest i have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to reading the logs I've been collecting. On my laptop I've been using WireShark to track network connections and various apps to track them on my android. So my question is, how do I know what IP Addresses are suppose to be there and which may be an intruders?
Also what piece of info (local/foreign/remote IP, MAC, hostname, DNS)is the one that will provide me with the most information if researched properly? & where is the best place with the tools to research said information?

IP helps, but remember there are also lots of botnets and a number of hackers are also smart enough to cover their tracks.

You also should be run a vulnerability scan of the entire network, because you may need a number of patches on your systems.

And I also highly recommend you check for all of open ports and ways to connect to any systems on your network remotely.

How do I do that?
Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

The vulnerability scans, you need a tool like Nessus or Retina.

The open ports, you could use tools like Nmap. Also you could check all of your firewall rules.
