tionally excellent companies take few risks, product leaders encourage new ventures and a steady stream of new products. Although they take security seriously, good-enough security is a guiding principle; innovation—not process—is the key to avoiding or preventing security problems. As a result, security takes a back seat to performance, is less centralized, and is not the key determinant of a product’s success. The third market discipline, customer intimacy, emphasizes customer needs and requests and excels at meeting them. Security is important for customer-intimate companies when customers express security needs. Thus, the security organizations of customer-intimate companies are less topdown than those of operationally excellent companies, and their centralized procedures involve signiﬁcant customer interaction. As a result, security is built into products and services only when the customer demands security.
“The task is simple to explain but harder to achieve. If we do not incorporate adequate security measures in our computer and communications infrastructure, we risk being overwhelmed by external enemies. If we put an externally focused view of security ahead of all other concerns, we risk being overwhelmed by their misuse. We must find a set of rules and a mechanism for overseeing those rules that allows society to defend itself from its genuine enemies while keeping communication surveillance from stifling dissent, enforcing morality and invading privacy. If we do not, the right to use privacy –enhancing technology that was won in the 1990s will be lost again.”
Security and ethical employees will continue to be a vital aspect of ensuring the success of an organization. There will always be a need for ethical IT security professional as hackers will continue to force organizations to make adjustments in their business models to protect their employees, data and customers. Many organizations and managers believe application security requires simply installing a perimeter firewall, or taking a few configuration measures to prevent applications or operating systems from being attacked. This is a risky misconception. By understanding threats and respect impacts, organizations will be equipped to maintain confidentiality, availability and
Consider your case-study industry and the security discussions that are taking place there. Consider the security discussions that are taking place in this seminar. Delve into the models that have been explored and articulate what you and your colleagues think of these conceptual frameworks. Assess the overall value of models and frameworks to your industry's security environment. Reference sources and the interview will be essential to the success of this particular assignment.
The purpose of this qualitative study is to identify the IT leaders who have successfully implemented security policies and procedures. Using the quantitative methodology would not be appropriate because the collected data will not be in the form of numbers and/or statistical results, and the statistical findings will not generalize the real-world problem that needs to be resolved. (Creswell, 2014). Quantitative methods are used mainly to find out the who, what, when and where and the results numerical descriptions provide where the researcher needs more of a detailed narrative (Sutton, & Austin, 2015)
The EO13636 chief objective is to improve the Cybersecurity Framework of principles and determine what the best practices are that may possibly be taken to decrease the threat from all cyber dangers. Under EO13636, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Security Staff, and The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will coordinate with additional investors to advance the Cybersecurity Framework. National Institute of Standards and Technology executives are asking that everyone who is involved take an active role in the development of this Framework (Fischer et al., 2013)
12, 2014. Based on the EO, the Cybersecurity Framework must include a set of standards, methodologies, procedures, and processes that align policy, business, and technological approaches to address cyber risks. It must provide a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, performance-based, and cost-effective approach, including information security measures and controls, to help owners and operators of critical infrastructure identify, assess, and manage cyber risk. The EO will create processes which identify areas for improvement to be addressed through future collaboration with particular sectors and standards-developing organizations. Lastly, the EO must be consistent with voluntary international
On Thursday, December 22, 2016 at approximately 2147 hours, Security Operations Center (SOC) notified FHEO Security in reference to a signal 54B (Missing or Eloped Baker Act Patient), from the East Tower room #502. Security Officers Omar Alonso (420) and Christopher Paz (408), responded to the scene. While enroute, SOC advised Security staff that the Baker Act Patient, who was later identified as Daniel GonzalezRamos (DOB: 11/04/1987 – Fin #86614786), was exiting the building from the South wing, stairway A, located in 5 East. As Officer Alonso and Paz ran towards stairway A and attempt to stop the patient from leaving, Assistant Nurse Manager (ANM) Tonya Smith rushed in the Emergency Department triage stating that the patient had ran towards the main lobby, west tower. Alonso and Paz conducted a search of the area until they observed a Hispanic male with black hair, wearing paper blue scrubs standing next to a visitor, later identified as Maurice, talking on a cellphone. Both Officers approached Patient, GonzalezRamos and advised him that he had to return to his room. Mr. GonzalezRamos was very uncooperative and refused to go back to his room. As Paz attempted to walk closer to him, he bolted into Lake Underhill Road. Officer Paz extended his right arm and attempted to pull the patient from going into incoming traffic, as he grabbed the back of his blue scrub shirt, the shirt ripped off. The patient

In the current society, business, organizations and government are very dependent on computers and Internet. Adequately protecting an organization 's information assets is a requisite issue. Many organizations have deployed security software or devices, such as firewalls or intrusion detection systems, to help protect their information assets and to quickly identify potential attacks. IBM Systems Journal states that "some organizations came to realize that one of the best ways to evaluate the intruder threat to their interests would be to have independent computer security professionals attempt to hack into their computer systems" (IBM 2001). This might be a good way to evaluate the system vulnerability. However, to allow a penetration test team break into their systems, the organization may have faces some risks. For example, the penetration test team may fail to identify significant vulnerabilities; sensitive security information may be disclosed, increasing the risk of the organizations being vulnerable to external attacks (The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants). Some organization even send their system administrator to be trained Ethical Hacking as a career course in Tertiary
On 2/10/16 at 11:57 P.M. Security was notified via email by Loss Prevention Specialist (LPS) Corey Green to look into a theft of a pizza slice that occurred in the B Building break room. Shift Supervisor (S/S) Enmanuel Cabrera start by pulling the complainant Kyle Smith (smithky) lenels’. S/S Cabrera was able see to that Mr. Smith enters the B building with a domino’s box at 6:45 P.M through turnstile 5. Upon entering, Mr. Smith places domino’s box in the refrigerator along the B building bathroom wall at 6:46 P.M. After further review of camera C140 at 8:27 P.M, Security Officer Christopher Maletta was seen taken a slice of pizza of the pizza
Private security is an increasingly growing industry with an increasing demand in recent years. It has reached the point where private security officers outnumber police officers in the United States, according to an article in The Washington Post. Similar trends are occurring in other countries as well. Yet many websites including CNN claim that security guards are untrained and incompetent. How is this supposed to make people feel safer? Thankfully, these claims are largely untrue and exist only to stir up rumours which sell newspapers. Here are the ways unarmed security officers are keeping people safe and preventing crime every day, in ways that you probably don’t realize:
Security Officers must obtain a consensus for which mitigating controls are key, which can be a trying negotiation between the CISO, Chief Technology Officer, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI), Infrastructure Engineering, Audit and Assurance teams, and the Investment and Audit committees. How do you harness your entire organization to focus on a common agreed-upon list of key security controls?
There were a number of factors that contributed to the breach, which had they been addressed or had corresponding mitigation responses in place, would have reduced the likelihood that the breach would have taken place, or at a minimum reduce the impact of the attack. These items range from policy related issues, technology implementations, and security management and maintenance. Although I believe a number of these areas were in the process of being addressed, based on the information gathered regarding the details of the incident, it appears that it was still in many areas insufficient and would not have prevented an incident even if there had been more time available to perform the implementations.
In order to effectively implement security governance, the Corporate Governance Task Force (CGTF) recommends that organizations follow an established framework, such as the IDEAL framework from the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute. This framework, which is described in the document “Information Security Governance: Call to Action,” defines the responsibilities of (1) the board of directors or trustees, (2) the senior organizational executive (i.e., CEO), (3) executive team members, (4) senior managers, and (5) all employees and users.
