However, only some of the abovementioned compromises may be adequately prevented through data security. Consequently, data backup, duplication and storage become critical for ensuring data integrity. Other data integrity security best practices include input validation to prevent the entering of invalid data, error detection/data validation to identify and check errors in data transmission, and security measures such as data loss prevention, access control, data encryption, and more. Most of the business debates and concerns regarding cyber threats have focused on the confidentiality, accessibility and availability of information. In the future, it is expected more cyber operations to change or manipulate electronic information in order to compromise its integrity in terms of accuracy and reliability, instead of deleting it or disrupting access to it.
2) Home automation, breach results in unauthorized access and cause harm. With the recent trend in internet of things (IoT) many homeowners and industries integrate, appliances and sensors to by managed by web and cloud. Some of these systems are not highly secure and increases the risk of being hacked. Again, the user information may not be the target, it could be other assets that are target of the crime. 3) Digital media breach results in loss of revenue, by criminal sharing information illegally.
David Anderson should assist Henry Jones in becoming fully aware of policies and procedures of the company. This would help Henry understand that what he is doing is causing a major security concern and by typing in his username and password he is acting in the public interest. Since this is not the first time Henry has done this and we know that he will probably be terminated for this, section 6.08 helps us decide what we should do next. It is David’s responsibility to report any errors in the software upon which he works. He has found a major security risk and it is now his responsibly to report it to the company.
With the enactment of HIPAA, the ability to accurately and reliably share data across these various systems is crucial. A data breach is a very real risk associated with cloud computing and as cloud-based platforms for big data get more popular; they will become targets of malicious activity. Also with so many devices feeding into one service, it is crucial that the cloud application has secure API’s that cannot be bypassed or circumvented. If measures are not taken to assure stakeholders that these standards are met, the sustainability of this initiative will be short
Civil forfeiture was originally created with noble and worthwhile intentions. The goal was to battle against crime and budgetary restrictions at the same time, which is very logical. However, over the years civil forfeiture has been warped, and in many cases causes more harm than good. It is important to understand both the positive and negative aspects of civil forfeiture in order to see the big picture of the situation and be able to stand against the issue as a member of society. At its base, civil forfeiture is a law enforcement tool with many different functions.
The loss of PII not only affects individuals but also companies responsible for the safekeeping of PII. To understand how one can protect their personally identifiable information, one must first understand the threats and the consequences that come from that data being compromised. The main threat one’s personally identifiable information is by hackers . Hackers utilize a number of vulnerabilities to gain access to a computer system for the sole purpose of gaining information. The system is not limited to a person’s own personal computer, but also includes the systems that businesses use to store customer information.
The rise in cloud computing and storage has exacerbated the security concerns related to the data being worked with. Despite all measures that are taken within the cloud computing architecture, these networks are still vulnerable to attacks. Fog computing is a revolutionary
Due to many controversial and popular events, many events come across as justified for their actions due to the rules and ethics that can help support them. How has technology complicated the use of rules and ethics of war? As new technology becomes a possibility past rules and ethics can possibly become irrelevant. Therefore, those rules caused a major turning point in violence. Rules and ethics were either highly disregarded or used as an excuse to further their actions as innocent, moral, and justified.
Information transmission and exchange over shared channels such as Internet, Intranet…etc, becoming a more necessity for all fields in our daily life. It is therefore possible for any user to intercept the sensitive data that is transmitted over the shared channel. So information security and data encryption are becoming more and more important. Information encryption techniques have been an important and active research area from ancient time to nowadays, which involves a number of applications such as military communication, intellectual properties protection, information security, to name a few. One of the major purposes of data encryption is that one is able to encode data to be sent in such a way, that it is difficult for an unauthorized
The fast pace at which technology is advancing causes information privacy to become increasingly complex as more data is collected and exchanged and digital dossiers grow. Logic serves to substantiate that as technology evolves, so do the methods of collection and protection. Information can be very valuable not just to the government but also corporations, companies and private players. This data collection can threaten and lead to invasion of our privacy, therefore there needs to be regulations, policy frameworks that can address these issues while safeguarding our privacy and anonymity.
Write privilege that allows a user to change something Execute privilege is that allows a user to create folders, files or set date. Software updating If you want to protect your computer from any malicious activities, therefore, you should update your computer security software regularly. It is very important to update a software security software because some weakness software may allow a hacker or viruses to gain access to your computer. Moreover, update a software can able to make your computer faster. If you do not update the security software that means there will be changes to get attacks by hackers and viruses so you should update a security software regularly.
A great example of how the DHS is handling our infrastructure would be the National Infrastructure Protection Plan. This plan provides an updated approach to critical infrastructure security and resilience focuses on integration of cyber and physical security efforts and drives action toward long term improvement (DHS, n.d.). Although there are some great resources available for critical infrastructure protection, there are still vulnerabilities that exist. In my opinion, the fact that a lot of critical infrastructure is privately owned and operated is a cause for concern. Because of this “partnerships between the public and private sectors are essential to maintaining critical infrastructure security and resilience.
However, despite these vast improvements, technology has also come with a lot of risks especially regarding personal information. Apple’s new finger scan feature may violate one’s right to use the fifth amendment which protects one from giving information that may self- incriminate one of a crime. The issue with Apple’s new software is that it
The government has a vested interest in the cyber security of their network. Thumb-drives can have devastating effects when connected to a network. They make the governments system vulnerable to viruses, malware, and other threats that can compromise the security of sensitive information. Also, thumb-drives or devices like them make it extremely easy to obtain data that should not be removed from government computers. This again gives the government a reasonable interest in the protection of “their” property to search these personally used
