    WEP encryption

    I came to a small company that had WEP encryption. I am trying to convince
    them to at least go with WPA.
    They think WEP is good enough. Do insurance companies look at such things
    when investigating claims from damages resultant from a wireless breach? I
    though I would thro that at them also.

    Hi
    Most insurance companies probable have No standard about it.
    How ever you can be sure that if something happens and there is litigation
    about the issue it would come up and might reduce the insurance carrier
    responsibly.

    There may be harware upgrades requried for this small company to begin using
    WPA. Part of their reluctance may be spending more money. I doubt there
    would be any precedent for reduced insurance coverage due to using
    established wireless security methods (WEP) but just not the most rigorous
    (WPA).

    You might point out that a Google search for "how to crack wep" returns
    over 38,000 hits:

    Your searches would be more productive if you learned a bit about Google
    search basics instead of being such a pompous ass.

    A pompous ass would be someone who suffixes his name with MS-MVP yet the
    only answer he can muster is telling a person to try Google.
