Personal Home Information and Risk Management
An 11 page paper discussing the risk to which personal information is subjected at home. Home is the primary repository for personal information for most people. The paper provides an inventory of the types of personal information held in a single home that also houses a business and a graduate student, followed by assessment of the risks to that information and a security plan intended to control those risks. The plan follows that of the “Risk Management Guide for Information Technology Systems,” Special Publication 800-30 of the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NISTA), identifying information assets; assigning a loss value to each; and identifying vulnerabilities and the likelihood of each to arrive at a risk-rating factor for each item. The paper concludes with a security plan for those items at greatest risk. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
Urban Baseball Stadium, Sporting Events, and Risk Management
This 5 page report discusses various issues of risk management associated with using a municipal baseball stadium for sporting events by groups other than the teams directly associated with the stadium. The important elements of any risk management program include quality control, standards development, personal safety/injury, and information security. Those elements are equally important in the business of sporting events. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
Common Management Information Protocol and Simple Network Management Protocol
This 17 page paper looks at Simple Network Management Protocol also known as SNMP and Common Management Information Protocol also known as CMIP are both alternatives that can be used in network management. Both of these systems have advantages and disadvantages. This paper considers why Simple Network Management Protocol is not the ideal system for network management and how Common Management Information Protocol may resolve many of these issue, but also has some additional problems, such as increase use of overhead resources and increased complexity and also examines the functionality of CMIP. The paper presents two case studies to illustrate the way that CMIP is of great benefit to the telecommunication industry, but is of limited benefit to other industries. The bibliography cites 10 sources.
Formation of Security Management Policy and Risk Management Effects
An 18 page paper discussing issues that need to be addressed when forming security risk management policy. The very essence of developing an effective security policy is dependent in great extent to the level of risk that exists. It has been demonstrated repeatedly that network and computer administrators face the threat of security breach each day. Building security is less predictable, particularly as groups of fanaticals place their energies into dreaming up increasingly grand plans for murdering innocents by the thousands. Those responsible for forming and implementing security management policy must be aware of the types of risk faced by the organization and then control for contributing factors. The paper discusses management of risks that are both physical and informational. Bibliography lists 17 sources.
