Question Description

  1. Write a 2½- to 3 ½-page security vulnerability report in Microsoft Word based on the organization you chose in Week 1. An internal review of your organization was previously conducted and found the following vulnerabilities:
    • A formal Password Policy has not been developed that meets your organization’s regulatory requirements.
    • The organization only uses single factor authentication using weak passwords.
    • Vulnerability Severity: High
    • Impact: Threats could easily guess weak passwords allowing unauthorized access.
    • Software configuration management does not exist on your organization’s production servers.
    • There are different configurations on each server and no operating system patching schedule.
    • Vulnerability Severity: Moderate
    • Impact: With ad hoc configuration management, the organization could inadvertently or unintentionally make changes to the servers that could cause a self-imposed denial of service.
    • An Incident Response Plan has not been developed.
    • There is not a formal process for responding to a security incident.
    • Vulnerability Severity: High
    • Impact: In the event of a security incident, an ad hoc process could allow the security incident to get worse and spread throughout the network; the actual attack may not be recognized or handled in a timely manner giving the attacker more time to expand the attack.

    Consider people, processes, and technology that can be exploited by the source of a threat.
    Include recommended countermeasures to mitigate the impacts and risks of the vulnerabilities.
    Format your citations according to APA guidelines.
    Submit your assignment.
