White_M3_Review Adam M. White Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University 1. What is information security policy? Why is it critical to the success of the information security program? According to Michael and Herbert information security policies are written instructions, provided by management, to inform employees and others in the work place of the proper behavior regarding the use of information and information assets (pg.125).
We can judge the network to be secured if there are proper security measures implemented to protect the network. In order to be competent and secured, it is necessary to be aware of different security features. Some of the basic features/elements of security are: • Confidentiality • Integrity • Availability or Non-Repudiation These three put together are commonly known as “CIA” (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Authenticity) in the domain of network security.
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.
2 We need to have an awareness of agreed ways of working, policies, procedures and codes of practice for handling information, understanding roles and responsibilities in relation to handling information, seeking permission from the appropriate people to access records where needed. The re is also an importance of staff training
One of biggest roadblock that companies have to face is to invest a lot of money on implementing a software system and have employees ignore it and keep trying to do the task in their own way. This the reason why the provider that you choose for implementing your software have to be a natural fit for the organization. If the owners and employees have the same passion and understanding of the product that they would implement the result would be a success (Phillips, 2016).
the project, this will be include creating the interfaces, building the application logic, creating the database and integrating all the three tiers to meet the functional requirements laid out in the project specification. Testing phase – 1 week This stage involves unit and integration testing of all the modules implemented in the previous stage following the test plans laid out in design phase. Test results are to be created to demonstrate the effectiveness. Testing will focus on security, performance, usability and accessibility of the
In this step, identification is made of the threat sources, possible threat events produced from the sources, and exploitable vulnerabilities from those sources and events. Step 2 also determines the likelihood of the sources initiating specific events and the likelihood of success, the negative impacts that could result from exploiting vulnerabilities by sources of threat, and security risks that result from the likelihood of vulnerability exploitation and the impact of
Goal In this lab the goal was to set GPOs and PSOs for the Windows Server 2012 box that we had set up in the previous lab. Group policies allowed us to manage the settings and configurations on the domain bound machines as well as fine tune the password complexity requirements. I had already set up multiple GPOs for my machines prior to starting this lab, so all I really had to do was add in any additional GPOs as well as create the Password Setting Objects. Windows Server 2012:
In order to ensure their protection HIPAA has instituted the Privacy and Security Rules that pertain to the safeguard of the Administrative, Physical, and Technical aspect to a patients EHRs. This insures that your provider puts into place measurements that guard against any unauthorized use of a patients PHI. Administrative Safeguards: HIPAA requires providers to have policies and procedures that are in place that protect the patients security, privacy and confidentiality. The administrative safeguards required under the HIPAA Security Rule include: • Identifying
In this modern world the need for designing and developing an application with good secure features is very high. I have also learned what an error exceptional handling is and why is it important in code review. I have also learned that in developing a software product or in the software development life cycle process, a software product must be teste in earlier stages and very frequently. This recalled my knowledge of secure software development life cycle. One must know the importance of secure software development life cycle.
You need to understand your existing network infrastructure to determine how well it can meet the needs of your deployment goals. By examining your existing infrastructure, you identify if you need to upgrade existing network components or purchase new network components. You should build up a complete map of the existing network by covering these areas: 1. Physical communication links, such as cable length, grade, and so forth 2. Communication links, such as analog, ISDN, VPN, T3, and so forth, and available bandwidth and latency between sites 3.
