The realization of potential risks to an organizations information system has been increased in the past few years. The principles of risk management, vulnerabilities, internal threats, and external threats is the first step in determining which levels of security are necessary to protect and limit the risks to an organizations information system. This essay will describe the principles of risk management as they pertain to the information system and its associated technology of Professional Security Training School.

Employers have to monitor employees for security concerns relating to intentional or accidental release of sensitive data. Mohl, shows in a 2006 survey by Proofpoint Inc.
As such, our company’s people resources pose the greatest risk for security breach. Our way to help mitigate risk in this area is to keep communication lines open in this area and to continually mandate security knowledge training, with mandatory updates on a regular basis.

In this way knowledge is power – or at least empowerment to act in the best interest of the company’s information security.
In today’s IT world every organization has a responsibility to protect the information and sensitive data they have. Protecting data is not only responsibility of security and IT staff but every individual is involved in protecting the information. The risks to information security are not digital only, but it involves technology, people and process that an organization may have. These threats may represent the problems that are associated to complex and expensive solution, but doing nothing about these risks is not the solution.
Information security enabled by technology must include the means of lowering the impact of intentional and unintentional errors entering the system and to prevent unauthorized internally or externally accessing the system actions to reduce risk data validation, pre-numbered forms, and reviews for duplications. It is crucial that the mission plan include the provision of a disaster recovery and business continuity plan. On the other hand, there is much more intrusion activity today than ever before. Obviously, there is an increased concern for attacks through companies’ network in an effort to either commit malice or affect the integrity of an organization’s most valuable resource. Therefore, it is important that companies do not get complacent in their IT infrastructure security. The fact of the matter, there is no perfect system; however, it behooves organizations to protect their information by way of reducing threats and vulnerabilities. Moreover, Whitman and Mattord (2010) said it best, “because of businesses and technology have become more fluid, the concept of computer security has been replaced by the concept of information security.

When analyzing the TJX case study, it is important to identify the failure points of the incident to gather a better understanding of the situation. Firstly, the people involved within the company and security breach were not one of the major failure points. However, if better information security practices were in place within the company, it would have made employees at TJX more prepared for security threats such as the one that occurred at TJX. Having a better information security company culture would have helped employees be more cautious when going about their day to day tasks. In regards to TJX’s work process, their process was clearly flawed. When discussing a work process, that process is developed within a company. When a

This creates an information security culture in which everybody undertakes accountability for security. Chen, Ramamurthy, and Wei-Wen support the idea that while building the mindset of a security consciousness culture may be a long-term process SETA programs offer substantial support building a security culture within organizations (Chen, Ramamurthy, & Wei Wen, 2015, p. 18). A decent information security program will not be sufficient enough. SETA is essential in having an effective information security program in an organization by helping to reduce the loss of
The increasing use of technology is the business sector has created the need for information security (IS) training. Training end-users on information security related items assists in the reduction of information risks that organizations encounter in the conduct of business operations.
