Week 2 Discussion – Chapter 3: Separation
In today’s world, both government and the private sector are struggling to provide a secure, efficient, timely, and separate means of delivering essential services internationally. As a result, these critical national infrastructure systems remain at risk from potential attacks via the Internet.
It is the policy of the United States to prevent or minimize disruptions to the critical national information infrastructure in order to protect the public, the economy, government services, and the national security of the United States.The Federal Government is continually increasing capabilities to address cyber risk associated with critical networks and information systems.
Please explain how you would reduce potential vulnerabilities, protect against intrusion attempts, and better anticipate future threats.
You must do the following:
1) Create a new thread By Thursday. As indicated above, please explain how you would reduce potential vulnerabilities, protect against intrusion attempts, and better anticipate future threats.
2) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.
ALL original posts and comments must be substantive. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”)
In this week, you examined the security principle of collection and correlation. The gathering of system related information about national infrastructure is key for security analysis. In the same vein, correlation involves a specific type of analysis that can be performed to identify if security-related indicators emerge from the analysis. Discuss the importance of the security principle of collection and correlation. Identify some important sources from which information needs to be collected in the context of national and critical infrastructure protection. Also, identify the four distinct analytic methods that are available for the correlation of cyber security information. Provide examples and identify challenges that are involved in collection and correlation.
