I certainly agree that star topology is the most common form of network topology, and it’s common and convenient because all the terminals are connected to a central device, making it easy to add or make changes to existing terminals. However, one major downside of using star topology is that if the main hub goes down, the entire network is affected. As you suggested, a security officer can mitigate the risk of downtime, data loss, and breach by ensuring that the proper backup systems and protocols are in place and tested regularly. Additionally, it’s crucial to ensure that only authorized individuals with the correct credentials are working on restoring the system and making the repairs.
