Security—of our systems, our organizations, our personal identities—is more
important than ever, and we, as an industry, need to advance the art and technology
of security to make it less elusive, more readily achievable. I’m well
aware that being responsible for security in an organization is not an easy job,
and my objective for Mission-Critical Security Planner is to make that job easier
and the results more effective.
Enterprise network architectures are in a constant state of flux, and due to a lack of
resources and knowledgeable security expertise, some businesses are unable to
maintain ongoing security best practices that include proactive security planning and
Because today's security threats are so stealthy, it is often difficult to impossible to
perform root cause analysis to determine how a breach or potential breach event

This book is designed for those with an inspired idea who wish to translate it into a
successful new business or incorporate it in an existing business. Usually, the first challenge
for those who want to get a business idea off the ground is securing funding. Any investor
or those in an existing business with responsibility for approving new initiatives will
invariably insist upon seeing a business plan before they approve any investment.
Today's networks incorporate more security features than ever before, yet
hacking grows more common and more severe. Technology alone is not the
answer. You need the knowledge to select and deploy the technology
effectively, and the guidance of experts to develop a comprehensive plan that
keeps your organization two steps ahead of mischief and thievery. Active
Defense: A Comprehensive Guide to Network Security gives you precisely the
knowledge and expertise you're looking for. You'll work smarter by day, and
sleep easier by night....
Network System Administrators operate in a high-stress environment,
where the competitive demands of the business often run counter to
textbook “best practices”. Design and planning lead times can be nonexistent
and deployed systems are subject to constant end-runs; but at
the end of the day, you, as the Administrator, are held accountable if
things go wrong.You need help and a fail-safe checklist that guarantee
that you’ve configured your network professionally and responsibly.You
need to “CYA”....
Multi-Domain Security Management is a centralized management solution for large-scale, distributed
environments with many different network Domains. This best-of-breed solution is ideal for enterprises with
many subsidiaries, branches, partners and networks. Multi-Domain Security Management is also an ideal
solution for managed service providers, cloud computing providers, and data centers.
For many organizations their dependence on information systems, both within the company
and networked up and down their supply chain, is now business critical. Any sustained loss
of availability of these systems would threaten the very existence of the business.
Security is a holistic issue. Vulnerabilities in physical, personnel and electronic
security all need to be addressed with equal commitment. Too many businesses still focus
on physical security without sustaining even basic precautions in personnel and electronic
Threat Lifecycle Management Services builds on Threat Discovery Services and
Threat Remediation Services and includes automated threat remediation and root
cause analysis with end-to-end threat analysis and management. In the event a
suspected exploit is discovered in a network stream or a routine scan of the
on-premise network, the threat mitigator technology will trigger processes to perform
pattern-free cleanup and root cause analysis and produce remediation advisories.
The CompTIA Security+ certification designates knowledgeable professionals in the field of security, one of the fastest-growing fields in IT. Security threats are increasing in number and severity, and the gap between the need for security professionals and qualified IT personnel is the largest of any IT specialty, according to a 2008 CompTIA study. Even in a troubled economy, most businesses plan to maintain or increase their investment in security.
An effective network security plan is developed
with the understanding of security issues, potential
attackers, needed level of security, and factors that
make a network vulnerable to attack . The steps
involved in understanding the composition of a
secure network, internet or otherwise, is followed
throughout this research endeavor.
To lessen the vulnerability of the computer to the
network there are many products available.
Despite the U.S. armed forces’ historical role as a model for racial integration and decades of Department of Defense (DoD) efforts to promote racial and ethnic diversity, many groups are still underrepresented within the department, especially among DoD’s active duty and civilian leadership. This is a particularly important issue for DoD because many military leaders believe that maintaining a diverse workforce is critical for the department’s national security mission. This report discusses the initial steps that DoD should take in developing a department-wide plan to achie...
This report is the second in a continuing review of the planning being done by the Social Security
Administration (SSA) to develop a new data management system to support its service delivery process. The
review was undertaken at the request of the Social Security Administration, and follows by one year a review by
a similar panel of the Board on Telecommunications-Computer Applications, National Research Council.
What is the challenge with converged network security? Finding the right partners to deliver a secure, reliable, converged voice and data network infrastructure — without limiting your flexibility to grow your business and extend the reach of your network — is the key. Converged network security isn’t something to be added after the fact — the need to protect your mission-critical communications systems and business applications should be considered from the very start of your converged network planning.
Water utilities have a long history of planning in preparation for emergencies,
particularly natural disasters. But contingency and emergency planning has taken on a
new dimension with current concern about potential threats to water system security. The
range of crises that have become plausible has expanded, and utilities now are
considering more robust security procedures and emergency plans than they have
historically had in place. When it comes to ensuring a water system’s security, few
utilities, regardless of size or geographic location, can function independently.
The research reported here was sponsored by the Deputy Under Secretary of the Army (International Affairs). Toward the end of the project’s duration, that office was disestablished and its functions split up and merged into the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology) and the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3, Operations and Plans, Headquarters, Department of the Army. The research was conducted in RAND Arroyo Center’s Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources Program....
Now that we have said so much about EPS, it is important to note that no one
ever analyzes a single second’s worth of data. An EPS rating is simply designed as
a guideline to be used for evaluation, planning and comparison. When design-
ing a SIEM system, one must also consider the volume of data that may be ana-
lyzed for a single incident. If an organization collects an average of 20,000 EPS
over eight hours of an ongoing incident, that will require sorting and analysis of
576,000,000 data records. Using a 300 byte average size, that...
For a system that is in the initiation or design phase, system information can be derived from the design or requirements document. For an IT system under development, it is necessary to define key security rules and attributes planned for the future IT system. System design documents and the system security plan can provide useful information about the security of an IT system that is in development.
