SECTION ONE INTRODUCTION
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
In years past, when enterprises were starting, it suffered data lose and information retrieval was difficult since there was no strong security service to protect already gathered information. Production, distribution and some other functions were very difficult to achieve due to weak security services but as the days passed by enterprise has struggled to secure its services and with the aid of growth in technology and programming enterprise services has reached a reasonable degree in achieving its dream by protecting its services from harm. An enterprise is an activity or a project that produces services or products. There are essentially two types of enterprise, business and social enterprises. Business enterprises are run to make profit for a private individual or group of individuals. This includes small business while social enterprise functions to provide services to individuals and groups in the community. These shows that an enterprise security service is a form of protecting the services or the product of individuals and groups in the community from harm (preventing unauthorized users from gaining access). Enterprise now uses Biometric, Encryption and some others forms of security to form the backbone of its services.
The term "biometrics" is derived from the Greek words bio (life) and metric (to measure). Biometrics refers to the automatic identification of a person based on his/her physiological or behavioral characteristics. This method of identification is preferred over traditional methods involving passwords and PIN numbers for its accuracy and case sensitiveness. A biometric system is essentially a pattern recognition system which makes a personal identification by determining the authenticity of a specific physiological or behavioral characteristic…...

Risks can be defined by “any exposure to the chance of injury or loss.” (Cheryl l. Dunn, 2005) Risks can be internal or they can come to us from outside sources in the form of external risks. Both types of risks pose a threat to the overall security of the enterprise. An Enterprise Security Plan (ESP) outlines possible risks by identifying the vulnerabilities within the business process and ranks the vulnerabilities for ease in developing a mitigation plan. The ESP also identifies technologies and policies that will help in the development of an operational plan that protects the business process and intellectual property of your corporation.

Riordan Enterprise Security Policies

...Riordan Enterprise Security Policies Tim L. Robinson CMGT/430 September 12th, 2011 Instructor: Dave Fedorchak Riordan Enterprise Security Policies Because Riordan’s facilities include three locations in the United States and one in China Smith Systems Consulting views Riordan Manufacturing as an enterprise business. However, an unfortunate reality exists because Riordan’s existing security policies are either nonexistent or inadequate at best for an organization of this size. Consequently, Riordan should seriously consider implementing better security throughout the entire enterprise by defining and creating a Separation of Duties (SoD). In fact, many organizations including the Department of Defense use SoD to decrease security vulnerabilities and discourage collusion by employees for a number of reasons (Gligor, 1998). Therefore, Smith Systems Consulting provides the recommendations and reasoning herein to encourage Riordan to adopt the concepts of Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) to create a SoD throughout the enterprise to reduce risk exposure and enhance Riordan’s enterprise security. Role-Based Access Control Since 2010, research by the National Institute of Standards (NIST) provides indisputable evidence that RBAC has become an increasingly common choice of enterprises with 500 or more employees (National Institute...

Voip Security in the Enterprise

...However, with the demand for communication technology on the rise so is the need for additional security. This paper will look at the implementation of VoIP and the necessary security needed in the Enterprise for transmission of safe commination. In addition, this paper will also explain the many advantages and disadvantages (risk) of using a technology such has VoIP in the Enterprise. Implementation Tips VoIP can be very successful in the enterprise if it is done properly using the right techniques and technology that is the right fit for the organization. On the other hand, it can be very unsuccessful and a huge failure. Some companies when considering implementing voice over IP they fail to first make sure that the system is working properly before putting aside their grandfathered system, such as private branch exchange (PBX). As with any new technology VoIP too has security risk. Therefore, companies must also take into account the correct security policies before they implement VoIP which will aid the company in having a better protected device (Thermos, 2009). In addition, implementing security protocol should be an essential part when considering making the switch from traditional phone systems, and should also take into account the specific types of applications being use in the company. Some Administrator may presume that it is not important to put into place additional security techniques for VoIP since the transmission is digitized voice; which travels......

By using this technology and internet applications can be run based on large data centers and servers. Cloud computing has gone through number of several phases including grid and utility computing (Margaret Rouse, 2015). Many enterprises have already started to implement cloud computing by knowing the potential of this technology. In 2012 according to IDG reports, (IDG ENTERPRISE MARKETING, 2016) the usage of cloud computing was 12% and by 2014 the number increased to 69% with the humongous change.

People used to perform these attacks for profits.Hackers will follow the procedures like mafiaboy and ask for the money.In 2005 ,it became more easy to implement those attacks ,a boy of 18-yr old named Farid Essabar developed a worm called MyTob which used to open a backdoor in Ms windows hosts and connect to the remote IRC server.The computer then used to wait for the commands from the servers.Farid was arrested for distributing the worm.This was surely not the last case.DDoS attacks were used to attack and money extortion. As name suggests Denial of Service aka DoS, it’s main objective is to make the system to deny the legitimate service requests.

The Affect of Shared Service Centers on Enterprise and Material Resource Planning

...Proposal The use of enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) is widespread. To maximize efficiency, companies of all sizes are implementing these systems and revising existing processes to increase efficiencies. The widespread influence on business by ERP systems requires investors to understand the benefits gained and the costs incurred by implementing them. Efficient conversions to ERP systems may provide a multinational corporation with enough of an edge to change the industry in which it participates. Determining and investigating key ERP benefits is important for a number of reasons. By evaluating how other firms have been affected by implementing ERP systems, a company can estimate how its processes will be benefit and whether the system will assist in solving the problems. Evaluating benefits “allows firms to investigate the alignment between their needs and what an ERP system can do” (O'Leary, 2004). Once the company has established ERP benefit benchmarks, it will have a point of reference by which to evaluate other ERP implementations. Once it is understood what ERP benefits are likely to be experienced, then those potential benefits can be used as the basis to set up measurements for those benefits. Then those measurements can be used to establish whether a company has attained the levels of productivity expected from the ERP implementation (O'Leary, 2004). Industry specific benefits must also be taken into account. In total, these are the reference points......
