Assignment: cyber security case study

 In Chapter 5, the interesting and controversial topic of cyber security is presented. As stated in the course textbook by Turban, Volonino, & Wood (2015), battling cyber threats is one of the costs of doing business in today’s globally-connected corporate environment. Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks (DDoS), malware infections, and other black-hat hacker generated security breaches have increased in frequency and pose even greater threats to government agencies, military organizations, and corporate enterprises. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Sony, Target, JP Morgan and eBay are just some of the entities that experienced major data breaches in 2015. The greatest theft of medical records ever occurred in 2015 at the health insurers Anthem and Primera. As Bloomberg Technology reported, “U.S. companies and government agencies suffered a record 1,093 data breaches” in 2016, “a 40 percent increase from 2015, according to the ” (Kharif, 2017). In 2016, Wendy’s fast food chain and the Democratic National Committee among others were victims of “headline-grabbing hacks” (Kharif, 2017). The 2017 “massive breach of one of the largest repositories of Americans’ most sensitive financial data” occurred in the attack on “dozens of sensitive databases” at Equifax (Riley, Robertson, & Sharpe, 2017). Of the great concern and receiving much media attention, is that regarding the potential for power-grid cyber attacks, something that would clearly undermine the safety and security of the world’s nations.
