Abstract
In December 2013 over 40 million credit cards were stolen from nearly 2000 Target stores by accessing data on point of sale (POS) systems. This paper will explore known issues in the Target breach and consider some of the Critical Controls that could have been used to both prevent this breach and mitigate losses. From what is known about the
Target breach, there were multiple factors that led to data loss: vendors were subject to phishing attacks, network segregation was lacking, point of sale systems were vulnerable to memory scraping malware and detection strategies employed by Target failed. A possible solution for preventing and mitigating similar breaches using a defense in depth model will be presented using a multi-layered security strategy. Considerations of human factors that contributed to the losses in this case will also be addressed.

Noahs Ark

...The story of Noah's ark is told in many different ways, but in every story their is told of a great flood. The christian story tells of a man named Noah who was the last faithful man on earth. The rest of the earth was violent and wicked in Gods eyes, so God told Noah to build an ark because he was going to cause a flood and rid earth of all man. God also told Noah he could bring his family and two of each species of animal to repopulate the earth after the great flood. There are two sides of the flood theory. Their are creationists and geologists.Creationists believe that the Ark existed and Noah had two of all species to repopulate the earth. There is some fossil evidence of this found in the Ararat mountains. As with most biblical fables or stories there is not exact scientific data to support all aspects, but creationists do not need scientific explanations to believe in the existence of God. Geologists believe in factual evidence proven to be true. While creationists believe that the earth formed 4,300 years ago while geoligists have proven 4.5 billion years ago. They also argue the fact that for noah to build an ark big enough to hold two of each species or could he manage all of the animals. And if the boat were big enough to hold two of each species it would take more than 200 years to build....

...Seminar in Academic Inquiry: Banned Books LST 100-05 Nicolette Ford Fall, 2012 “I attest that I have not consulted my notes nor used any electronic resources except for my word processor in the completion of this exam.” 1. Select one of the texts that we have discussed in class, and identify one or two elements of it that would cause it to be challenged in schools and libraries. Then, argue whether those elements justify banning. In the book Fahrenheit 451, there are many elements that would be considered inappropriate for schools and libraries. Some of these elements include violent behavior. For example, when the firemen burn the woman and her books, while the woman is still alive. Many people think this is gruesome and unnecessary. In my opinion, it makes the book that much stronger. The element of violence in this book does not justify banning. I believe the book holds such a strong meaning and banning it for something that only makes it stronger is ridiculous. 2. Select one of the texts that we have discussed in class, and identify one or two elements of it that would cause it to be challenged on religious grounds. Then, argue whether those elements justify banning. One of the texts that we have discussed in class is The Handmaid’s Tale. I think this is a good example of a book being challenged on religious grounds for many reasons. In the novel we are put into this world where woman have no rights, we learn that this world began by...

...The book has no place in modern society. Discuss. Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors. A book is a written or printed work that has its pages sewed or glued to one another. The book has been around for years in its present printed form, advancing along with new innovations in today’s modern society, the book may have been partially replaced by the internet but it would be too extreme to say that the book has no place in modern society. Its distinctive and tangible touch is impossible to be substituted for. Thus, I feel that the book still has a place in modern society. The book still has a place in today’s modern society as today’s society is a knowledge-based one, knowledge is key to success. Books are pivotal to imparting knowledge and skills to the masses, especially to students in school. We cannot neglect the fact that the book is still the bread and butter of our lives. An example of a book that develops our skills and knowledge is the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, which has sold over twenty million copies worldwide. The remarkable sales figures just demonstrates the importance of the book in modern society, be it for entertainment or personal upgrade. They are the very core driving force of passing down present-day human knowledge. Some may argue that modern day innovations such as e-books serve the same function as well, however......

...After reading a couple chapters of this book I have came to the conclusion that it shows you a lot of strong points on how Thomas L Friedman thinks about the world. He explains why it all is happening and how the international system is transforming the world affairs. It also shows you all the things that he said in his book that they would come true and some of those things actually did come true. This books helps you understand about how globalization is working and why it is happening. It also shows and tells you how the world reacts to it and what the bad and good thing about globalization. In the first part of the book of the books it explains what the title ‘Lexus’ and ‘’olive tree’’ means. The Lexus stands for half the world emerging from the Cold War and people intent on building a better Lexus, modernizing economies in order to thrive globalization. The olive tree stands for the other half who are still caught up in the fight over who owns which "olive tree." The Lexus stands for the emerging of new things like 300 new Lexus being built everyday and people are moving on from the Cold War. The Olive tree represents our roots, anchors us, and identifies us. The Olive Tree also represents people fighting over who own what. That was the main thing in the beginning because it tells you what the title is all about. After that it goes into more detail about other things about globalization. It asks what a golden straightjacket it the golden straightjacket is an...

...A Great Story I read the books A Child Called It, The Lost Boy, and A Man Named Dave. The reason I choose these books is because they are true stories which keeps me interested. From the beginning it had me hooked. I had to keep reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I learned some things about these books but one thing stood out to me the most and that is how the legal system was very different back then than it is now. I believe Dave Pelzer is a very strong individual to be able to survive what he went through and I think it is great that he has become the person he is today. David James (Dave) Pelzer was born December 29th 1960 in San Francisco California. He is an American Author, best known for his 1995 memoir of childhood abuse, “A Child Called It”. Dave is born 3rd out of 5 boys. Dave wrote in his book that as a child, he was continually abused, mistreated, and beaten by his mother, who thought of it as a game. His teachers stepped in and on March 1973 Dave Pelzer was placed in foster care. He joined the Air Force in 1979 and later became an author. The book “A child called it” caused a dispute in his family, one of his brothers said it was not true, however his other brother who is an author wrote a book “A Brother’s Journey” which confirms Dave’s story. Dave has written two books, “A Child called it” and “The Lost Boy”, which is about his life after he was placed in foster care. Dave currently lives in a different state with...

...tells how well they are doing in an accounting sense. Market value ratios relate the firm’s stock price to its earnings, cash flow, and book value per share, and thus give management an indication of what investors think of the company’s past performance and future prospects. If the liquidity, asset management, debt management, and profitability ratios all look good, then the market value ratios will be high, and the stock price will probably be as high as can be expected. 16. The price/earnings (P/E) ratio, or price per share divided by earnings per share, shows how much investors are willing to pay per dollar of reported profits. 29. P/E ratios are higher for firms with strong growth prospects, other things held constant, but they are lower for riskier firms. 17. The price/cash flow ratio is the ratio of price per share divided by cash flow per share. 30. It shows the dollar amount investors will pay for $1 of cash flow. 18. The market/book (M/B) ratio, defined as market price per share divided by book value per share, gives another indication of how investors regard the company. 31. Higher M/B ratios are generally associated with firms with relatively high rates of return on common equity. 32. An M/B ratio greater than 1.0 means that investors are willing to pay more for stocks than their accounting book values. It is important to analyze trends in ratios as well as their absolute levels. Trend analysis can provide clues as to......

Russian Ark

...The Russian Ark by Aleksandr Sokurov is an amazing accomplishment for the film industry. It was the first film to be shot in one single take that lasted for ninety-six minutes. What I especially liked about Russian Ark is the history that is told in the film. Since the whole thing was done in the Hermitage Museum, I liked how the European flowed through the “halls of time” experiencing the greatness of Russia. That being said, I had a hard time following the film. Throughout the whole film, the European wanders through the museum which in the film is the Winter Ball. Not only does the film organize itself around the ball, it also shows different time periods of Russian history. I liked how we never met the narrator of the film but only relied on the European to show us around the Ball. He being a world traveler tied in to the fact that he is time traveling Russia. At the very end of the film, the narrator looked out of one of the windows and saw the ocean. I thought it was interesting how they tied the flow of history to an ark that holds Russia’s culture. It seems that it is saying that no matter what Russia had to go through; the 900 day siege, the days of Catherine the Great, the not so great times with Joseph Stalin; they stuck or sailed together However, as much as I liked the different time periods that were depicted, the colors, and music and dresses and the idea of a film with one single shot, I found that I was rather bored with the whole film. Like I said, as...

Авторы ESSENTIAL COURSE Unit One text From: DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE By R. Gordon Richard Gordon was born in 1921. He has been an anaesthetist at St. Bartholomew's Hospital,1 a ship's surgeon and an assistant editor of the British Medical Journal. He left medical practice in 1952 and started writing his "Doctor" series. "Doctor in the House" is one of Gordon's twelve "Doctor" books and is noted for witty description of a medical student's years of professional training. To a medical student the final examinations are something like death: an unpleasant inevitability to be faced sooner or later, one's state after which is determined by care spent in preparing for the event. An examination is nothing more than an investigation of a man's knowledge, conducted in a way that the authorities have found the most fair and convenient to both sides. But the medical student cannot see it in this light. Examinations touch off his fighting spirit; they are a straight contest between himself and the examiners, conducted on well-established rules for both, and he goes at them like a prize-fighter. There is......

...person who reads has had a chance to do each of them, and lots more, because when you read a book, you don’t just read it, you live it, you imagine yourself as the character of the book, you see yourself dealing with every situation that the character deals with and THAT EXACTLY is the magic of reading. Kristin Martz once said, “We lose ourselves in books. We find ourselves there too.” Now, the first question that might pop into your head is, “Why should I lose myself in a book when I can easily lose myself in my phone or computer?” The answer is that you might be able to lose yourself in your gadget but you won’t find yourself there. Books can make you imagine so much more, they can enhance your vocabulary, develop your personality and most important they can make you gizmos. Books think out of the little box which you are confined to because of your gadgets and will not only help you with your linguistic abilities but also with your communication skills. Conversations will always be interesting if you can talk well and that can only happen if you are well read. Books have a way to speak to you, in ways no one and nothing else can. They are the best remedy to boredom, to escape reality, to live a life which will be way more than interesting than your own. So, today, on the occasion of the world book day, I want to take the opportunity to urge all of you to just simply read. Go grab a book and lose yourself to it and I can vouch for it that exactly where you lost yourself,......

...FAHRENHEIT 451 by Ray Bradbury This one, with gratitude, is for DON CONGDON. FAHRENHEIT 451: The temperature at which book-paper catches fire and burns PART I IT WAS A PLEASURE TO BURN IT was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history. With his symbolic helmet numbered 451 on his stolid head, and his eyes all orange flame with the thought of what came next, he flicked the igniter and the house jumped up in a gorging fire that burned the evening sky red and yellow and black. He strode in a swarm of fireflies. He wanted above all, like the old joke, to shove a marshmallow on a stick in the furnace, while the flapping pigeon-winged books died on the porch and lawn of the house. While the books went up in sparkling whirls and blew away on a wind turned dark with burning. Montag grinned the fierce grin of all men singed and driven back by flame. He knew that when he returned to the firehouse, he might wink at himself, a minstrel man, burntcorked, in the mirror. Later, going to sleep, he would feel the fiery smile still gripped by his face muscles, in the dark. It never went away, that. smile, it never ever went away, as long as......

...Dansdill February 20, 2012 Of Books Books either encompass my thinking or they stretch the limits of my imagination. Some of the most inspiring books are those which capture life, as I know it down to every specific detail. These books are similar to watching an HD TV; every detail is just so pronounced and accurate. Books that resemble this beautiful real life portrayal could be like J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in The Rye. Every emotion that Salinger delineates through his characterization of Holden Caulfield is so potent that those details resonate even more for someone dealing with a similar internal struggle. When I read the book at 15, every sensory detail that Salinger described helped better illuminate part of my own internal struggle. The over exaggeration of the resentment of society as being in genuine really captured my own internal resentment for molds that people contrive themselves to fit. The one scene with Caulfield sitting in the bathtub depressed after refusing sex from a hooker will always be infused into my constant sub consciousness. When I just feel worn out and pushed to my emotional limit, I see that image burned bright into my memory because that scene is the ultimate depiction of frustration and stress. Although, this style of writing may be beautiful, sometimes it is nice to escape the hyperrealism captured in a book like Catcher in The Rye, and instead read something that expands the mind’s imagination. The contrary to the book that affirms one’s......
