Guide on IT Security Awareness

Junior (College 3rd year) ・Business ・APA ・5 Sources

Given that service sectors are growing faster than industrial industries, data and information possessed by an organization are regarded as important assets. In order to secure firm information, it is crucial to be able to recognize and manage system risks and vulnerabilities. High level expressions of organizational beliefs, goals, and objectives as well as the broad strategies for achieving them in relation to the safeguarding of corporate assets are referred to as security policies. On the other hand, organizations that have some kind of regulatory authority over certain professions and businesses are referred to as regulatory organizations. Among them are NIST, AEAA, NRC, etc. Potential risks to organization security include loss of data, corruption of data and having incompetent IT staff while potential threats include viruses, malicious software and theft from employees. The Software Development Life Cycle currently incorporates security in S-SDLC (Secure Software Development Life Cycle) to enable developers build more protected software and report security compliance while minimizing costs of development. Organizations are seen to fear adopting the cloud due to privacy issues, security issues and high bandwidth costs. Four methods to secure information assets include: Use of Strong passwords, encryption of information, installation of intrusion detection systems to alert owners about the information, and use of biometric systems to avoid unauthorized access.

Elements of a security policy include: purpose of the policy, scope, information security objectives, authority and access control policy, data classification, data support and operations etc. Encryption works by using a complex algorithm called a cipher to turn normalized data (plaintext) into a series of seemingly random characters (ciphertext) that is unreadable by those without a special key to decrypt it.

Some important certifications to have in security include: CompTIA Security+, Certified Ethical Hacker, and Certified Information Security Manager.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
