As the benefits of wireless technology draw organizations into employing their own wireless networks, the issue of security has become increasingly important. Wireless networks pose their own distinct security challenges to those organizations, which adopt the technology. This paper is not a review of the various technological wireless security measures; rather, this paper's focus is the examination of wireless security policy. The goal of this paper is to make the reader aware of the weakness in current wireless security models and to lay a framework for the creation of an effective wireless security policy for sensitive organizations. Finally, the authors concluded with an examination of a case study, the Department of Defense, of real world implementation of wireless security policies, pointing out their deficiencies based on our proposed framework.
