...Security Policy CMGT 441 Security Policy Current Loan Process      McBride currently has two methods of applying for a loan: in-person or online. Either method eventually will return the same results; however, the online application method is faster as customers do not physically have to show up to an office to complete the paperwork. The obvious benefits of completing the loan application online far outweigh the physical appearance; however, there are a few downsides. The major downside is that should customers have questions about any portion of the loan application or loan process, they must either wait until their application has been received and turned over to a loan officer or contact one of eight offices via telephone. Current Security Issues Security of information is a major concern for businesses, but when dealing with the Internet, additional security threats emerge. Because McBride uses both an office setting and an online environment setting to accept loan applications, different security issues are related to each one. In-Person Almost all of McBride’s offices lack proper security features that will protect client information from getting stolen. All buildings located in each of the eight offices lack any sort of surveillance equipment. Because of this, hallways, offices, cubicles, and the parking area are not monitored for potential criminal activity. There are also no security measures in place that protect against unauthorized access into...

...Riordan Manufacturing Security Policy Smith Systems Consulting has been hired to evaluate and consult on the creation of a new information technology security policy to span the complete enterprise infrastructure. This document will serve as a recommendation for Riordan Manufacturing as it pertains to the enterprise wide information security strategy. Riordan Manufacturing currently has three locations within the United States and one location in Hangzhou, China. All of these locations have been evaluated and are considered part of the enterprise security policy. The review of the current information technology security policy was conducted based on the idea of improvement with respect to current technology trends and best practices. An evaluation of the enterprise infrastructure as a whole, as it pertains to information technology security, was also conducted. These evaluations were the starting point for Smith Systems Consulting to design a security strategy to best fit Riordan Manufacturing. The existing security policy consists of location-based data access to on-site servers and on-site access to Unix servers for ERP and MRP systems. Also, it was evident that there are a number of servers and data to be accessed from different operating systems that are deployed throughout the locations. The management of the existing security strategy is one that requires each individual to be assigned access permissions manually throughout their term of employment. This strategy......

...sure all of the security policy is enforced by mechanisms that are strong enough. There are many organized methodologies and risk assessment strategies to assure completeness of security policies and assure that they are completely enforced. In complex systems, such as information systems, policies can be decomposed into sub-policies to facilitate the allocation of security mechanisms to enforce sub-policies. However, this practice has pitfalls. It is too easy to simply go directly to the sub-policies, which are essentially the rules of operation and dispense with the top level policy. That gives the false sense that the rules of operation address some overall definition of security when they do not. Because it is so difficult to think clearly with completeness about security, rules of operation stated as "sub-policies" with no "super-policy" usually turn out to be rambling rules that fail to enforce anything with completeness. Consequently, a top level security policy is essential to any serious security scheme and sub-policies and rules of operation are meaningless without it. If it is important to be secure, then it is important to be sure all of the security policy is enforced by mechanisms that are strong enough. There are many organized methodologies and risk assessment strategies to assure completeness of security policies and assure that they are completely enforced.

...Law and Policy Case Study September 15, 2013 Introduction In the field of information security, there are many types of law. As senior managers, it is important to be knowledgeable of the legal environment. Once this information is learned and retained, then it will increase access and understanding of information security. Laws and practices that are related to information security will be discussed and how these laws impact organizations today and ensures confidentiality, integrity, and availability, of information and information systems. Governance policy will be discussed and recommendations for development of governance policy in an organization. Analysis The law in information security is very broad. There are different types of laws in information security. Civil law, criminal law, administrative law, and constitutional law are all part of law in information security. Civil law deals with law associated with individuals and organizations. Criminal laws are laws that effect society and are prosecuted by the state. Cornell University defines administrative law as “Branch of law governing the creation and operation of administrative agencies. Of special importance are the powers granted to administrative agencies, the substantive rules that such agencies make, and the legal relationships between such agencies, other government bodies, and the public at large (Cornell, 2010).” Constitutional law deals with how law...

To address the security issues of the original IEEE 802.11 standard, the following additional technologies are used: The IEEE 802.1X Port-Based Network Access Control standard is an optional method for authenticating 802.11 wireless clients. IEEE 802.1X provides per-user identification and authentication, extended authentication methods, and, depending on the authentication method, encryption key management dynamic, per-station or per-session key management and rekeying. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an interim standard adopted by the Wi-Fi Alliance to provide more secure encryption and data integrity while the IEEE 802.11i standard was being ratified. WPA supports authentication through 802.1X (known as WPA Enterprise) or with a preshared key http://www.informationweek.com/whitepaper/download/showPDF?articleID=901061&site_id=&profileCreated=......

Recommendations for Wireless Network Security Policy

...RECOMMENDATIONS FOR WIRELESS NETWORK SECURITY POLICY Introduction One of the newer technologies being increasingly used in today's business is that of wireless networks. While this technology has the advantages of providing greater user mobility and temporary access, it does have the disadvantage of an intrinsic lack of security. SECURITY THREATS There are a number of types of attack that wireless LANs are vulnerable to, based on different aspects of their operation and configuration. These include. i. Broadcast medium Wireless is a broadcast medium, where there is no way to control where the information is sent and who therefore has access to it. If an access point is set up and used in its default Configuration, then the user of such a system is vulnerable to attack, because anyone running sniffer software can see and capture everything that a user does across that network... ii. WEP Vulnerabilities. There were two problems with the original WEP encryption system. Firstly, the shared key system requires the use of the WEP key to verify a user attempting to connect to the wireless network. The second was the actual implementation of the encryption system itself. iii. Denial of Service This type of attack can be perpetrated by a jamming attack which can be either intentional attack which is one in which the attacker broadcasts a very high-power signal at the same frequency that the wireless network is operating on, causing interference to the......

Protecting Wireless LANs…………………………………………...13 V. Wireless LAN Security Summary……………………………………18 I. Introduction a. The 802.11 Wireless LAN Standard In 1997, the IEEE ratified the 802.11 Wireless LAN standards, establishing a global standard for implementing and deploying Wireless LANS. The throughput for 802.11 is 2Mbps, which was well below the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet counterpart. Late in 1999, the IEEE ratified the 802.11b standard extension, which raised the throughput to 11 Mbps, making this extension more comparable to the wired equivalent. The 802.11b also supports the 2 Mbps data rate and operates on the 2.4GHz band in radio frequency for high-speed data communications As with any of the other 802 networking standards (Ethernet, Token Ring, etc.), the 802.11 specification affects the lower layers of the OSI reference model, the Physical and Data Link layers. The Physical Layer defines how data is transmitted over the physical medium. The IEEE assigned 802.11 two transmission methods for radio frequency (RF) and one for Infrared. The two RF methods are frequency hopping spread-spectrum (FHSS) and direct sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS). These transmission methods operate within the ISM (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical) 2.4 GHz band for unlicensed......

Some companies have a security policy that is complete and some companies have a security policy that is incomplete. The company that has a complete security policy will be able to activate that policy when a security violation occurs. The users and network administrator will know exactly what to do to mitigate the incident. The policy should have a corrective action section that will guide the people involved on how to handle the incident. Then there are those companies that have an incomplete plan so when a security violation occurs the whole company is in an up roar because they do not know what to do. These companies will have to mitigate the incident as they go and when this happens the process is not complete leaving things left undone. The best practice for every company is to have a complete and accurate security plan that is reviewed annually.

Protecting Wireless Devices and Enhancing Security in a Wireless Network

...In this ever changing world, wireless communications has become a major platform for communications at work and at home. With popular mediums (Cell phones, PDA’s, Gameboys, Wii, Netbooks, iPods, etc…) like wireless devices, there are many advantages and disadvantages in operating wirelessly. No matter how you feel about the advantages or disadvantages of the devices, they need to be protected, along with setting up some form of security. On the website Howstufworksvideo (12) they show you the basics on how to setup home Network Security. You can go there can see how it is done. Just a few years ago, (25 Sep 07) there were some so-called experts saying that there was no need to secure your wireless system. In an article, David Ramel alleges that the importance of wireless security is overhyped, that it's now trivial to secure wireless nets and that IT pros have far more serious security concerns they should be addressing -- while home users have little to lose even in the remote chance someone tries to breach their network. (3) This person was obviously living in a sheltered environment because identity theft and credit card theft was out of control then. Now he is saying don’t worry about protecting your network and to just hold on to your wallet; basically. Either he was very innocent or totally clueless and is eating humble pie about now. Here are a few disadvantages. A limited spectrum, war driving, interfering signals can be generated by other devices in......
