Project 1 Multi Layered Security Plan

We will research the concept of a multi-layered security plan and Include several applicable layers for the plan, and describe at least one layer of security for each of the seven domains.

Outline of a multi-layered Security plan
User Domain

- Security policy violations – Place employee on probation, review AUP and employee manual, discuss during performance reviews.
Workstation Domain

- Unauthorized access to workstation – Enable password protection on workstations for access. Enable auto screen lockout for inactive times.
LAN Domain

- LAN server application software vulnerabilities and software patch updates – Define a strict software vulnerability window policy requiring quick software patching.
LAN-to-WAN Domain

- Local users lose productivity surfing the web and not focusing on work tasks – Apply domain-name content filtering at the Internet entry/access point.

WAN Domain- Vulnerable to corruption of information and data – Encrypt IP data transmissions with VPNs. Back up and store data in off-site data vaults (online or physical data backup) with tested recovery procedures.

Remote Access Domain
- Brute-force user ID and password attacks – Establish user ID and password policies requiring periodic changes (i.e., ever 30 or 60 days). Passwords must be used, passwords must have more than eight characters, and users must incorporate numbers and letters.

System/Application Domain
- Unauthorized accessed to systems – Follow data classification standards regarding stringent use of second-level authentication.

Explanation of the outline and uses
This outline marks the seven layers of a security plan used for securing a network of domains. For each layers I have provided a risk, as well as a solution to said risk. I tried to incorporate simple, yet large,…...

...13 Agent-Oriented Novel Quantum Key Distribution Protocol for the Security in Wireless Network Xu Huang, Shirantha Wijesekera and Dharmendra Sharma University of Canberra Australia 1. Introduction Wireless security is becoming increasingly important as wireless applications and systems are widely adopted. Numerous organizations have already installed or are busy in installing “wireless local area networks” (WLANs). These networks, based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, are very easy to deploy and inexpensive. Wi-Fi allows LANs to be deployed without cabling for client devices, typically reducing the costs of network deployment and expansion. As of 2007 wireless network adapters are built into most modern laptops. The price of chipsets for Wi-Fi continues to drop, making it an economical networking option included in ever more devices. Wi-Fi has become widespread in corporate infrastructures, which also helps with the deployment of RFID technology that can piggyback on Wi-Fi. WiFi is a global set of standards, unlike mobile telephones, any standard Wi-Fi device will work anywhere in the world. Other important trends in wireless adoptions are including the introduction of wireless email with devices such as the Blackberry and The Palm VII, rampant digital cell phone use, including the use of short message service (SMWS), and the advent of Bluetooth devices. But the risks associated with the adoption of wireless networking are only now coming to light. A number of impressive......

...TYPES OF COMPUTER NETWORKS Maninder Kaur What is Network? • A network consists of two or more computers that are linked in order to share resources (such as printers and CDs), exchange files, or allow electronic communications. • The computers on a network may be linked through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light beams. Different Types of Networks • Depending upon the geographical area covered by a network, it is classified as: – Local Area Network (LAN) – Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) – Wide Area Network (WAN) – Personal Area Network (PAN) Local Area Network (LAN) • A LAN is a network that is used for communicating among computer devices, usually within an office building or home. • LAN’s enable the sharing of resources such as files or hardware devices that may be needed by multiple users • • Is limited in size, typically spanning a few hundred meters, and no more than a mile • Is fast, with speeds from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps • Requires little wiring, typically a single cable connecting to each device • Has lower cost compared to MAN’s or WAN’s Local Area Network (LAN) • LAN’s can be either wired or wireless. Twisted pair, coax or fibre optic cable can be used in wired LAN’s. • Every LAN uses a protocol – a set of rules that governs how packets are configured and transmitted. • Nodes in a LAN are linked together with a certain topology. These topologies include: – Bus – Ring –......

Network because business networks are now connected to the internet and other networks external to the organization. This has made it easier for people to gain unauthorized access to the organization. 5. Information extortion occurs when an attacker steals information from a computer system and demands compensation for its return or for an agreement not to disclose it. For example, if a hacker gains unauthorized access to a celebrity’s computer and discovers embarrassing photos or videos of the star, he could then blackmail the star into giving him money in exchange for keeping the photos quiet. This causes not only a monetary loss for the celebrity, but also a loss of privacy and security. 6. Employees constitute one of the greatest threats to information security because employee mistakes can lead to the revelation of classified data, entry of erroneous data, accidental deletion or modification of data, the storage of data in unprotected areas, or they could fail to follow procedures to protect data. 7. Be aware of who is around when accessing confidential information - limit the number of times you access confidential information - Avoid accessing confidential information while others are present. 8. Classical is 14-18 year old male with little parental supervision. Modern is 13-70 male or female well educated person. 9. A skilled hacker develops software and code exploits, and masters many technologies like programming, network protocols and operating......

Creating an Ngo

...the NGO Cafe ask this question - where do I start? How do I know what to do? I am inspired, I want to do something, I want to help the poor... It’s not easy to get it right the first time. The first project, the first action, is fraught with problems you never anticipated. So, even before you start anything, be prepared: • Find an 'excuse': This is the spark, the initial reason for you to start along a path leading you to the setting up of an NGO. Many times it is a tragedy - such as a disastrous flood or a fire - that needs handling. Sometimes a more joyous event, such as a local festival, that brings the community into the streets to enjoy. Look at these initial trigger events as a learning experience, and as a means of building your network of friends and supporters. • Involve leaders: People and communities, in general, trust their leaders - not the political party types, but the 'real' leaders - the ones who do the actual work for the community, the ones who are active and care for the . Involve them at all stages of the project development and implementation, ask their permission to work with the community - it will make your project easier to implement. • Use a local center: Many communities now have centers - some just a meeting hall, where the community comes together for meetings, to hear their leaders, to celebrate a festival, or to discuss something that will affect their lives. These kinds of 'neutral' grounds are best used to explain an idea or a......

...Creating and Configuring Robert Collazo Jr. Rasmussen College Creating and Configuring Describe which factors must be considered when planning and designing a system image? The factors that need to be considered when planning and designing an image are what you are going to be what the image is going to be used for. For instance if was working in an office setting where everyone uses the same software and is on a network. There are many ways to design and deploy an image one is called DISM which means, Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool replaces the pkgmgr, PEImg, and IntlConfg tools that are being retired in Windows 7. DISM provides a single centralized tool for performing all of the functions of these three tools in a more efficient and standardized way, eliminating the source of many of the frustrations experienced by current users of these tools. Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a command-line tool used to service Windows images offline before deployment. You can use it to install, uninstall, configure, and update Windows features, packages, drivers, and international settings. Subsets of the DISM servicing commands are also available for servicing a running operating system. Next we have Windows SIM Windows System Image Manager creates and manages unattended Windows Setup answer files in a graphical user interface. Windows SIM provides the following benefits that enable you to: 1. Quickly create an unattended answer file. ...

...Network Attached Device Network-attached storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard disk storage device that is set up with its own network address and provides file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. It is attached to a local area network and assigned an IP address, allowing both application programming and files to be served faster because they are not competing for processor resources. NAS devices are usually configured with a web browser and do not have a keyboard or display. Consists of hard disk storage, including multi-disk RAID systems and can usually handle a number of network protocols, including Microsoft's Internetwork Packet Exchange and NetBEUI, Novell's Netware Internetwork Packet Exchange, and Sun Microsystems' Network File System. (Rouse, 2013) NAS devices speed is typically one gigabit Ethernet connection but this can be changed to multiple gigabit, 10 gigabit, fiber optic by adding a pci-e network card(s). Older parts can be used which may be limited to 10/100 megabit. If you need an exact answer for speed, simply look at the wiki on gigabit. The capacity range varies, people have built 40 TB (terabyte) machines and other just have 2TB. With port replication and add on hard drive controller cards there is hardly a limit on size. A board with 6 SATA ports can be replicated (1 to 5 port) allowing for 30 drives to be attached, if 3TB drives were used in raid 50 that would be 72TB of storage. As far as fault tolerance, raid 50...

Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Organization: In (Metaprofiling, 2013)1 study about the entrepreneurial organizations they differentiated between two concepts, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organization. Successful entrepreneurs are opportunists who, through their creativity, drive and vision, create economic or social value. They challenge conventional wisdom by practicing disruptive innovation — innovation that creates new markets through the application of a different set of values. They change the rules of the game by questioning the status quo and upping the stakes. It follows that an entrepreneurial organization can be defined as: An organization that places innovation and opportunism at its heart in order to produce economic or social value. However, for many organizations, this is only a brief moment in their evolution. And according to (Rodrigues et al,2003)2 entrepreneurial organizations, in fact, reflect the basic characteristics of its leadership.

...models and cognitive maps created in the main and learning (training) processes, as well as their shared values, guide the behaviour of an organisation’s members. In a small enterprise organisational learning can be the same as team learning. The style of management determines team and learning process formation in organisation development. Particularly effective are facilitating (Long, 1992) and learning leadership styles. The manager’s role in the implementation of a feedback system A task of managerial work is to learn to know the employees well in order to put people’s hidden talents into maximum use for the achievement of the organisation’s primary goals. This role expects the manager to be the leading person who organises a network of relationships and creates prerequisites for synergy. A technologically improving world should address the people as a non-exhaustive resource because the creative aspect of work is invaluable and inimitable. Communication should be perfect, added value requires more than just an exchange of information (Zwell, 2000; Sydänmaanlakka, 2002; Mets, 2002; Vadi, 2004; Torokoff and Mets, 2005). 3 Innovation in an organisation is a difficult process, which is easier to destroy than to lead to a positive end result by way of efficient strategies (Hanson, 2001; Weedall, 2004). Stress is laid on basic principles, such as the consideration of cultural and historic traditions, the existence of specific goals, the determination of......

...Home » Resources » Networking Tutorials » Network Switching Tutorial Network Switching Tutorial Network Switching Switches can be a valuable asset to networking. Overall, they can increase the capacity and speed of your network. However, switching should not be seen as a cure-all for network issues. Before incorporating network switching, you must first ask yourself two important questions: First, how can you tell if your network will benefit from switching? Second, how do you add switches to your network design to provide the most benefit? This tutorial is written to answer these questions. Along the way, we’ll describe how switches work, and how they can both harm and benefit your networking strategy. We’ll also discuss different network types, so you can profile your network and gauge the potential benefit of network switching for your environment. What is a Switch? Switches occupy the same place in the network as hubs. Unlike hubs, switches examine each packet and process it accordingly rather than simply repeating the signal to all ports. Switches map the Ethernet addresses of the nodes residing on each network segment and then allow only the necessary traffic to pass through the switch. When a packet is received by the switch, the switch examines the destination and source hardware addresses and compares them to a table of network segments and addresses. If the segments are the same, the packet is dropped or “filtered”; if the segments......
