In your document, write an executive summary describing how security assessments throughout the seven domains of a typical IT infrastructure can help organizations achieve compliance by mitigating risks and threats.

The purpose of this homework assignment is to allow you to review the vulnerability life cycle and explain the different types of disclosure to mitigate different risk factors. You will identify risks that attacks, vulnerabilities, malicious code phishing, underground economies, and spam have on organizations.

You will look at the risks caused by the Zero Day Initiative, HTTP Client versus Server Side attacks, Malicious JavaScript, PHP Remote File Include, botnets, and PDF attacks on organizations. You will also look at the practices of vulnerability management to prevent threats from old or previously performed attacks on known vulnerabilities within the seven domains of a typical IT infrastructure.

Participate in each section of the homework assignment and follow the instructions for the exercises in each section. You will use a text document to develop your homework assignment by completing the sections listed below:


Lab 4.1a

 

Review the following scenario:

Your organization is a governmental agency that serves a vital role in homeland security functions. In fact, your hiring took longer than you would have liked because it seemed as though the organization’s managers wanted to know a lot about you before they gave you clearance to work. After a year at the job, your manager feels your progress has come a long way, so she is giving you more responsibility and has asked you to analyze the benefits of reporting risks, threats, and vulnerabilities in an IT assessment that is under way.

Your manager would like you to conduct research and report your findings about the type of vulnerabilities that require disclosure and when it is lawful or unlawful to conceal information produced by vulnerability assessments. She would also like you to include some trends on current security threats and the types of responsible disclosure being performed by other organizations.
