Current Trends Regarding Network Security Issues
This paper examines trends that are impacting the concept of computer network security, including the separation between sophisticated and amateur hackers, the problems with firewalls and the difficulty in protecting wireless networks. A major focus of the paper is addressed toward wireless networks. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Security and Wireless Technologies
A 9 page paper that begins by identifying some of the many benefits of wireless technologies, including the fact that research studies reveal a substantial increase in worker productivity. Security concerns are discussed along with an explanation of the standards intended to reduce risks, such as Bluetooth and 802.11b standards. Hot spots are defined and discussed, including the fact that their numbers are growing exponentially. The essay ends with a discussion of the use of wireless technologies in hospitals and the concerns about installing them. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Stadium Security and Honeywell
A 3 page paper discussing the need for increased stadium security and the capabilities of the Honeywell Stadium Security System. The system includes provision for fire detection, security and close-circuit television, as well as for public address voice alarm and a system for the hearing impaired. It also provides communications capabilities. Expensive at $3.9 million, it may be able to save the stadium through reduced personnel need, tighter security and lower insurance premiums. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
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.
Wireless Communications and Satellites
A 10 page research paper discussing the increasing use of satellite technology in the wireless communication industry. This paper discusses a description of the subject matter, the current state of technology in this field, and then presents the advantages, disadvantages and present and future trends in the use of satellites in wireless communications systems. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
