Do we conduct periodic spot-checks of Auscred Services staff’s workspace for security related compliance (such as compliance to any clean desk policy)? Disaster recovery 60. Do we follow our documented procedures for backup and recovery? Note: IT backup is an important component of our BCP. For example, our BCP provides that that we do these things to minimise the risk of lost of electronic documents – some documents are scanned to tape, and softcopies are held by business units; remote replication; and disk
What is a process control block, and what is it used for? A process block control is a data structure containing information about an active process. PCB is used for storing the collected information about the processes and allows the OS to locate key information about a process such as the name, state of the process, resources that are allocated to the process, scheduling information, process ID, and input/output devices that are used by the process. 7. What is a thread?
Information Governance Training. 2.2 If there are concerns relating to handling and sharing information we need to apply an individual measures e.g. staff training, CRB checks and vetting procedures, staff supervision and management; system measures e.g. electronic audit trails, encrypted passwords, information checking systems. There has to be agreed ways of working with specific policies and procedures, physical measures e.g.
Access Control Access control is a type of security technique which is used to identify an authorised user who can view or who will use resources for various data processing activities in a secured environment. Access control describes selective choosing of the information on the network and only authorised users have access to those information. Accessing information means utilising the data for business processing activities on the network. The access control is secured with the help of username and password for which the access to information is given to only a set of authorised users on the
1. Identify drives to which the databases and/or logs will be backed up, ensuring that there is enough disk space to accommodate the backups for the retention period that you choose. 2. Identify drive that will be used for data or log files. These will usually be on SAN storage and hence on a different drive from the operating system and SQL Server installations.
Assignment 1 What is Web Server Scripting? Explain the principles of web server scripting: Web server scripting is simply where a script is executed on the web server before a webpage is sent to the user. This means that the files that the user can customised rather the layout or information shown on the webpage once they load it up, an example of this would be, on Facebook once you login you will get a news feed, which is for you alone and no one else. This makes webpages dynamic; they can change depending on circumstances of the user instead of being a simple static page which can’t change rather the layout, information and so forth. This is different from client side scripting however, since to be a server side script the data must be executed on the web server side, compared to the Client side scripts which are executed by the user’s browser.
2.7 Observations from GMPCS Model Based on the above model, several observations can be made as follows. Observation_1: According to an interoperability feature between CSPs, a storage service will be hosted over a pool of resources that are in different geographical locations. Furthermore, different technologies, protocols, and security strategies are applied by each CSP within its datacentres to facilitate managing an environment to protect both resources and data. The technologies and strategies, therefore, might be disparate in terms of efficiency, and the type of storage network or storage system might be varied as well. Additionally, risks associated with outage or lock-in of a single CSP are reduced.
EISP also known as a security program policy, general security policy, IT security policy. EISP guides the development, implementation, and management requirements of the InfoSec program, which must be met by InfoSec management, IT development, IT operations, and other specific security functions (pg.129). ISSP provides detailed targeted guidance to instruct all members of the organization in the use of a resource, such as a process or a technology employed by the organization (pg.134). SysSP function asstandards or procedures to be used when configuring or maintaining systems
v. Installation. The system installation involves placing computer hardware such as computers, servers, printers and routers, and software such as system software, drivers, and plugins into the daily organization’s operations. vi. Data conversion (convert the data from existing system to the new system). This step involves analyzing the data from the old system to determine which information have to be converted to the new
Folders can contain files. It is important to give files and folders sensible names so we know what it is about. This is very good as it enables us to keep track of all our work. These images shows the number of folders you can have inside, by having these folders it keeps track and organises your folder. Device Drivers A device driver is a group of software files which enables one or more hardware devices to communicate with the computer’s operating system.
For example, CloudWatch Logs can track the number of errors that occur in the application logs and send a notification whenever the rate of errors exceeds a threshold. • CloudWatch Logs uses log data for monitoring; so, no code changes are required. • The CloudWatch Logs Agent makes it easy to quickly move both rotated and non rotated log files off of a host and into the log service. We can access the raw log event data whenever needed. • Amazon CloudWatch Logs lets to monitor and troubleshoot the systems and applications using the existing system, application and custom log files.
The jobtracker assigns the tasks to the tasktrackers running on many slave nodes or on a cluster of machines. The tasktrackers send messages called heartbeats regularly to the jobtracker to update the status, such as alive, idle, busy, etc. If suppose a task fails or times out, or a node is dead, the jobtracker will re-schedule the tasks to run on available nodes automatically. HDFS component consists of a single namenode and multiple datanodes. The namenode maintains the metadata about the data present on each datanode.
I. Site “Springfield” Device and STP Configurations Site Details and Challenges (Summary) This section will implement device hostnames (to correlate with the xACME educational topology labels), provide a sample configuration for the MOTD and login banner, and provide configuration steps for applying device passwords (encrypted) on the console port and VTY. This section will also review what the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) does, its benefits, and provide a sample configuration for applying STP on the switches. Security methods that can be applied to the devices will be reviewed as well. Site Solution(s) and Technologies There are four switches on the Springfield site.
