I can assume that my organization MIS department will do it for me because they would identify issues and problems and promote to employees how to protect their assets that might be vulnerable to theft in the outside world. It’s important to protecting our assets that might be on portable devices to prevent the theft, use two factor authentications, and encrypt your data. Protecting your privacy by using strong passwords, adjusting the privacy settings on your computer, and surf the web anonymously. Other ways to protecting your privacy may include e-mail anonymously by reporting spam to your email provider and knowing what information on your emal is creditable, and by erasing your Google search history to prevent important history from being discovered. | 2.
Attackers are always looking for devices and software that are newly added to a system and not updated correctly with the security measures in place already. This is the door they look for to get in. A method to avoid such opportunities is to deploy an automated asset inventory discovery tool and use it to build a preliminary asset inventory of systems connected to an organization's public and private network. This will help make the system capable of identifying any new unauthorized devices that are connected to the network within 24 hours, and of alerting or sending e-mail notification to a list of enterprise administrative personnel. Without such a tool in place an attacker will use the unpatched device or software to gain access and manipulate the network how they please.
Missouri branch is using Norton Anti-Virus corporate edition, Arc Serve Backup Software. Anti-virus will protect and remove viruses, Trojan horses and worms but to block hackers from getting access to the data, a firewall must be implemented. New Jersey Office/Plant. This branch is also not using a firewall. No firewall can be a disaster for Huffman Trucking because it allows hackers to get in and have access to organization’s valuable information.
The guide will be important because it will dictate to the staff how to properly protect the venue and event without violating the policy of the stadium and the individual rights of the guests. The first thing discussed will be who we should search. We will perform a pat down and a once over with the metal detecting wand to every ticket holder. Each bag will be searched for contraband such as weapons, alcohol, drugs, or glass containers. We will also randomly select individuals to be removed from line and searched more thoroughly.
Port scan is as the name implies, a scan of the open ports on each computer of the network to define which ports are open and what services are running on them. This information can be used to set up an attack on the network by allowing the hacker to bypass vulnerability in the software being run or on any open ports that can be used to gain deeper access to the network. With a port scan the probe sends information to each port on the network and the open ones respond back, this data can be used to determine the easiest way to infiltrate the network. The safest way to defend against this type of probe is using a firewall. Just as in a ping sweep, if you deny access to a port scan requesting information from the network you render them
Kostadinov goes on to note that most cyberterrorism actions are generally focused on website sabotage and email blasting. In order to prove that the network breach was a terrorist attack the company would need to provide electronic evidence of these types of information warfare. Information warfare is a term often used interchangeably with cyberterrorism but provides a deeper understanding in the shift of how data has become fundamental to society. As governments, companies and people shift to the use of digital information so have the methods used to attack (Gilmer, 2001). In order to combat this aspect of terrorism, the military have adopted computer forensics as part of their defenses (Vacca & Rudolph, 2011).
By proper end user training for anyone involved with the Corporate Techs site, proper scanning of all USB and thumb drives on a test computer being used for this particular site, can mitigate threats from bugs and viruses. Also, by changing all local computer default autorun policies, will disable usage of these USB ports and stop an occurrence from taking place. Last, it’s almost near impossible for an end user to not use a personal laptop during work hours for personal use or for work. But to mitigate further problems from happening, I will implement an encrypted file system for sensitive data. TrueCrypt is a program that I have found efficient that controls over endpoints that enter and exit the internal system.
Internal attacks can be more difficult to find as attackers have the potential to remove any evidence of the attack more easily as they have more knowledge or access rights on the system as opposed to an outside attack. Attacks can be administrated via removable devices such as a USB that could contain some form of malware on it such as a virus. Most internal attacks are conducted by unhappy employees who want to disrupt the organisation by using the knowledge they obtained in the organisation, against the organisation. Additionally, the employee may want to gain access to important data in order to infiltrate and sell the information onto another competing organisation. The
Background checks on personnel should have been done before hiring considering that one of the crew members was helping everyone get information and what not on the casino. 5. Systems to detect another systems being used to detect them from tapping in on their system for security such as their cameras of the vault, vault elevators, etc... Signals someone should have noticed indicating a problem: 1. In front of the belagio they put cones around a seweage hole in the street.
Unit 9 Assignment 1: List Phases of a Computer Attack In this assignment I am a hacker who needs to protect my organization from a computer attack. I will list general phases of a computer attack. We have an organization that we need to protect from outside attacks by foreign parties. I am an ethical hackers who needs to take preventative measures in order to adequately secure the network against these attacks. Many attackers follow a general set of steps in order to gain the permissions necessary to break into a system.
