3.1Definition The main security concern of many organizations nowadays is how to prevent or mitigate the risks coming from portable devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops. Each of these devices connecting to the corporate network creates a potential entry point for security threats (which is called endpoint). Another concern is how to secure the data which resides on portable devices of their employees. This needs to be done in such a way that even if the device falls into wrong hands, the data should be protected. These two concerns can be resolved with the help of endpoint security.
Research Purpose 1.4 The purpose of this study will be to develop adequate security strategies and best practices as a guide to add to the knowledge base of current literature on IoT devices. The current research literature on the internet of things indicates that the number of attacks against IoT devices are on the rise. The number of potential attackers is growing at an alarming rate because of the number of IoT devices that are joined to network every day (Abomhara and Kien, 2015). Tools are available to those same potential attackers are much more sophisticated that they have ever been. (p. 66). This study will provide valuable information to IT leaders, service providers, vendors and IoT manufactures.
The Internet, as we all know, has rapidly spread around since its commercialization in the 1990s. It is evident that cybersecurity attacks are not going anywhere, and that government will continue to remain a target. In addition, the Internet of Things (IoT) growth will lead to more devices being connected to the networks. Therefore, with technology moving forward and hackers being more motivated as ever, the government finds itself struggling to keep up with effective cybersecurity measures and with filling up the designated positions in the Cybersecurity department.
The Department of Homeland Security supplies a national protection plan concerning critical infrastructure security. This plan targets a wide audience, including public and private critical infrastructure owners and administrators. Managing risks through identifying, deterring, and disrupting threats to critical infrastructure is the direct focus of this plan. The ability of an organization to reduce the impact of a threat that has occurred and reducing the impact of one that may occur is essential to an active security posture. Compromise of a critical infrastructure such as oil, airports, or traffic flow management could result in a major loss of life or resources (Department of Homeland Security, 2013).
1) Employ the use of risk analysis and vulnerability assessment processes When it comes to the protection and mitigating of any structure or organization risk analysis and vulnerability assessments must be conducts so as to know what’s to be protected, the threats manmade or natural disaster, ranking the potential of threat as well as the probability. In terms of critical infrastructure the risk analysis and vulnerability assessment has guidelines from Homeland Security Presidential Directive Number 7(HSPD-7).

Of the varied kinds of infrastructure, cyberspace is crucial constituting the information regarding the government and business operations, crisis management and readiness information, and our crucial digital and process control systems. Safeguarding these critical resources and infrastructure is
PPD-21 establishes national policy on critical infrastructure security and resistance. The directive mentions 16 critical infrastructure sectors vital to the integrity of the U.S. system and their associated Federal Sector-Specific Agency (SSA). Nevertheless, PPD-21 demands a shared responsibility among the Federal, SLTT, and public and private owners and operators of
Critical Infrastructure Protecting America’s critical infrastructure and key assets is a formidable challenge. Our technologically complex society creates an infinite amount of potential targets. It is pretty much impossible to protect all of our assets all of the time.
Course Project: Security Assessment and Recommendations Aircraft Solutions SEC: 571 Adam Grann Professor: Reynolds Weaknesses are a symptom that is prevalent in today’s information technology realm, indicating vulnerabilities and risks that come hand and hand with shared networks like Aircraft Solutions. With enterprises exchanging an unprecedented level of information over open networks, the vulnerabilities and possibility of compromised security by unwanted intruders is swelling up into a new type of beast.

THE GLOBAL IMPACT OF DATA BREACH ON LARGE CORPORATONS 1. INTRODUCTION In today’s technological era, where data are now stored in a intangible computer cloud, always connected and our dependency on accessing these data centers for critical information has increased dramatically over the years, are now proving to showcase a major flaws in security. Gone are the times when the need to store data locally on an unconnected storage device. Today most devices are
Running head: WIRELESS AND MOBILE SECURITY PLAN Wireless and Mobile Security Plan Patrick C. Behan Regis University Context: Our networks are becoming more vulnerable because of wireless and mobile computing. Ubiquitous devices can and do pose a significant vulnerability. In this activity, you are to think outside the box and determine how to best defend
This article takes account of the security concerns in the early 2000s and states that it’s a reality. Provides a “long-range outlook” to mobile technology makers in designing future mobile devices. Concepts can be used in future security frameworks.
Introduction: Cyber security is a major concern for every department, business, and citizen of the United States because technology impacts every aspect of our daily lives. The more we use technology the more complacent, we get with the information that is stored within our cyber networks. The more complacent, we get, the more vulnerable we become to cyber-attacks because we fail to update the mechanisms that safeguard our information. Breaches to security networks are detrimental to personal, economic, and national security information. Many countries, like Russia, China, Israel, France, and the United Kingdom, now have the abilities and technology to launch cyber-attacks on the United States. In the last five years there have been several attacks on cyber systems to gain access to information maintained by major businesses and the United States Government. Cyber-attacks cause serious harm to the United States’ economy, community, and the safety, so we need to build stronger cyber security mechanisms. Based on my theoretical analysis, I recommend the following:
