Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

Threats to a system

A major threat to any system is the damage or destruction of systems or information on a networked computer system. Threats include loss of files or data, natural disasters, malicious damage, technical failures, human error and theft.

Threats to a system

Natural Disasters: Malicious Damage:

Technical Faults: Human Error:

Theft: Organisational Risks:

In pairs investigate and provide examples of the above threats and the possible consequence of them.

Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

Natural Disasters

  • Range from simple power cuts to floods or fire

  • Require organisational measures to cope with extreme issues

  • Affects depend on how critical the system is – air traffic

  • Employ necessary technology to provide resilience

Natural Disasters

DISASTER RECOVERY POLICY

  • Remote storage of data acquired in daily backups

  • Remote Mirroring of critical servers

  • Alternative data centres to transfer control at times of serious emergency

Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

Malicious Damage

  • Internal & External causes

  • Hackers or disgruntled employees

  • Can be physical damage as well

  • Security techniques required to limit access


Unit 7 organisational systems security6

Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

Human Error

One of the most unpredictable and common causes of security issues in networks.

  • Forgetfulness, Ignorance, Innocence, Lack of knowledge

  • Backup data and place in a secure location

  • Erase hard drives before disposal of computers

  • Close ports on firewalls

  • All can lead to network intrusion and viruses

  • Increased attacks on broadband connections

  • Social engineering and phishing attacks

Theft

Again one of the most unpredictable and common causes of security issues in networks.

  • Forgetfulness, Ignorance, Innocence, Lack of knowledge

  • Backup data and place in a secure location

  • Erase hard drives before disposal of computers

  • Close ports on firewalls

  • All can lead to network intrusion and viruses

  • Increased attacks on broadband connections

  • Social engineering and phishing attacks

Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

Technical Failure

  • Always a risk with complex systems

  • Loss of servers, storage devices, internet connections

  • Technical damage can cause commercial damage and also inhibit the security of systems

Unit 7 Organisational Systems Security

CYBER DAMAGE

  • Research ‘cyber damage’ by internet search

  • Find out how many insurance companies now offer cover for this possibility

  • Why do they offer this cover?
