Case Study

In Chapter 5, the interesting and controversial topic of cyber  security is presented. As stated in the course textbook, 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. Of 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.
Written Assignment: Conduct research on a recent  threat or attack on a government agency, military organization, or  corporate enterprise. Present data that describes the type of threat,  the degree of harm caused by the threat, and describe who or what entity  the perpetrator(s) might have been that could benefit from such an  action. Give details on solutions that might have prevented the exploit  and could be utilized to assist in mitigating or eliminating cyber  threats in the future.
