Nature of the Work
Each day, hundreds of billions of dollars change hands on the major United States securities exchanges. This money is used to invest in securities, such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, which are bought and sold by large institutional investors, mutual funds, pension plans, and the general public. Most securities trades are arranged through securities, commodities, and financial services sales agents, whether they are between individuals with a few hundred dollars or large institutions with hundreds of millions of dollars. The duties of sales agents vary greatly depending on their specialty. The most common type of securities sales agent is called a broker or stock broker. Stock brokers advise everyday people, or retail investors, on appropriate investments based on their needs and financial ability. Once the client and broker agree on the best investment, the broker electronically sends the order to the floor of the securities exchange to complete the transaction. After the transaction is finalized, the broker charges a commission for the service. The most important part of a broker’s job is finding clients and building a customer base.

The existing network is comprised of two firewalls, one external firewall housing the entire network, one web and FTP server, one email server and one IDS on the DMZ. The second of the two firewalls (internal) protects the WAP, two Windows Server 2012 Datacenter, three file servers, one hundred workstations and the VoIP telephone system (see example below). There have been reports of malicious activity being on the rise; this document will outline the three largest security concerns for the company as a whole.

...the CSO or Chief Security Officer. The CSO reports to the Board of Directors directly, hence cannot be influenced by the CEO or the CFO. According to the guideline by ASIS, this is the best model for a position that is as critical as the Chief Security Officer. Our CSO has been trying to add security to the culture of the company, and so far, it has been working. Being that the department is very new (about 1 year old), the security policies are now part of the human resources new hire packet. During their orientation, every new employee has to listen in on about 30 minutes of presentation that is security related, in addition to the normal company and culture orientation. The policies and procedures are now also embedded in the company intranet, and everyone has to sign a letter that says they read everything about the company’s security policies and procedures. This part also complies with the ASIS CSO guideline of bringing security into the company culture. According to the guideline, there is physical security that is handled by the CSO through his Facilities Director, as well as information security that is handled by the Information Security Director. They both report to the CSO (although the facilities director also reports to the Vice President of Human Resources). The company also has a Legal General Council, but this position reports directly to the CEO. The CSO regularly liaises with the General Council on all legal matters relating to the security department.......

...Assignment 1 Lee Holland Identify what you see as the main purpose of security management and discuss what is meant by the statement that ‘security measures must be commensurate with the threat’. Within this essay I seek to break down the main assignment into the two phases that are within the title, the first being; What is the main purpose of security management? a role that to some would be undervalued, inconvenient, poorly funded and a hindrance, where to others, it is an effective, well-co-ordinated and highly desirable position, which when funded correctly, will have a positive effect on an organisations financial goals in the aid of preventing the loss of their assets through ways that were not before protected, this both in the corporate business and the commercial world. A reliable and effective security function is an asset to any organisation wishing to protect their tangible and intangible assets from compromise. In the second phase I will discuss what is meant by the statement that “security measures must be commensurate with the threat” In a world where the threats are changing daily, it is imperative that security procedures, policies and counter measures are kept up to date, and in line with the current rules and regulations of the security industry, they must also work within the National law within the county that they might be operating in. With financial constrictions and fierce competition within the business world it is only natural that an......

...through their customer portal had dropped drastically over the past last five months. The company has noticed anomalous traffic on port 80 of the Web Server on the DMZ. The edge router’s logs showed that the traffic started six months ago and ended five months later. They noticed five months ago that traffic from the Web servers to the internal application servers decreased each day, although the inbound requests on port 80 remained about the same. Over the last four months, Web server logs contained many http “Post” statements followed by the Website address of one the company’s main competitors. All of the post statements seemed to appear in the logs after new users would click “submit” to register. Based on the information that has been provided it seems that a competitor has been able to compromise the company’s network. This has allowed them to reroute network traffic from users that are attempting to register through the company’s portal to their competitor’s site. The next step in investigating the issue would be to complete an assessment of the network. A review of the traffic that is produced in and out of the company’s network is key to understand what is going on with the network. It is critical to select the appropriate personnel to make up the team that will oversee the security management and assessment activities. Needed on the team are people that have experience in security management and also people that have experience in the financial industry. Team......

...For our security we have the firewalls set up using both the firewall installed in windows and the one on the router. We will set the firewall up to be stateful so that data can still come in and out of the network but this way the firewall will basically make a copy of the outgoing traffics source IP numbers and when that source tries to send info back to the network it will recognize it and let it back in. If hacker tries to spoof the firewall then it will recognize that there is a discrepancy with the numbers and will not let the hacker through. We have installed AVG virus protection on all the machines and set it up to update at some point during the downtime of the company so that the definitions are always up to date and protecting the computers. We can also set up access lists for the network and choose what port numbers and even have it examine packet contents from what is coming in and out of the network. This is usually placed on the networks internet connection but is only a very basic line of protection for the network and probably less secure. The problem with this is there is no history of data traffic and it is not stateful. One more thing that was done is all accounts are set up with passwords and those passwords have guidelines such as they must be 8 or more characters long and use a combo of letters numbers and special characters. There is a limit on login attempts and the password is set to be changed after a certain amount of days....
