Project 1 Information Systems and Identity Management Video transcript CYB 610 Project 1 You are a systems administrator in the IT department of a major metropolitan hospital. Your duties are to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of patient records, as well as the other files and databases used throughout the hospital. Your work affects several departments, including Human Resources, Finance, Billing, Accounting, and Scheduling. You also apply security controls on passwords for user accounts. Just before clocking out for the day, you notice something strange in the hospital's computer system. Some person, or group, has accessed user accounts and conducted unauthorized activities. Recently, the hospital experienced intrusion into one of its patient's billing accounts. After validating user profiles in Active Directory and matching them with user credentials, you suspect several user's passwords have been compromised to gain access to the hospital's computer network. You schedule an emergency meeting with the director of IT and the hospital board. In light of this security breach, they ask you to examine the security posture of the hospital's information systems infrastructure and implement defense techniques. This must be done quickly, your director says. The hospital board is less knowledgeable about information system security. The board makes it clear that it has a limited cybersecurity budget. However, if you can make a strong case to the board, it is likely that they will increase your budget and implement your recommended tool companywide. You will share your findings on the hospital's security posture. Your findings will be brought to the director of IT in a technical report. You


will also provide a nontechnical assessment of the overall identity management system of the hospital and define practices to restrict and permit access to information. You will share this assessment with the hospital board in the form of a narrated slide show presentation. You know that identity management will increase the security of the overall information system's infrastructure for the hospital. You also know that, with a good identity management system, the security and productivity benefits will outweigh costs incurred. This is the argument you must make to those stakeholders. Daily life requires us to have access to a lot of information, and information systems help us access that information. Desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices keep us connected to the information we need through processes that work via hardware and software components. Information systems infrastructure makes this possible. However, our easy access to communication and information also creates security and privacy risks. Laws, regulations, policies, and guidelines exist to protect information and information owners. Cybersecurity ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information. Identity management is a fundamental practice. Part of identity management is the governance of access, authorization, and authentication of users to information systems, Identity management is one part of a layered security defense strategy within the information systems infrastructure. Your work in this project will enable you to produce a technical report and nontechnical presentation that addresses these requirements. There are five steps that will help you create your final deliverables. The deliverables for this project are as follows: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CYB 610 Project 2 Congratulations, you are the newly appointed lead cybersecurity engineer with your company in the oil and natural gas sector. This is a seniorlevel position. You were hired two months ago based on your successful cybersecurity experience with a previous employer. Your technical knowledge of cybersecurity is solid. However, you have a lot to learn about this company's culture, processes, and IT funding decisions, which are made by higher management. You have recently come across numerous anomalies and incidents leading to security breaches. The incidents took place separately, and it has not been determined if they were caused by a single source or multiple related sources. First, a month ago, a set of three corporate database servers crashed suddenly. Then, a week ago, anomalies were found in the configuration of certain server and router systems of your company. You immediately recognized that something with your IT resources was not right. You suspect that someone, or some group, has been regularly accessing your user account and conducting unauthorized configuration changes. You meet with your leadership to discuss the vulnerabilities. They would like you to provide a security assessment report, or SAR, on the state of the operating systems within the organization. You're also tasked with creating a nontechnical narrated presentation summarizing your thoughts. The organization uses multiple operating systems that are Microsoftbased and Linuxbased. You will have to understand these technologies for vulnerability scanning using the tools that work best for the systems in the corporate network.


You know that identity management will increase the security of the overall information systems infrastructure for the company. You also know that with a good identity management system, the security and productivity benefits will outweigh costs incurred. This is the argument you must make to the stakeholders The operating system (OS) of an information system contains the software that executes the critical functions of the information system. The OS manages the computer's memory, processes, and all of its software and hardware. It allows different programs to run simultaneously and access the computer's memory, central processing unit, and storage. The OS coordinates all these activities and ensures that sufficient resources are applied. These are the fundamental processes of the information system and if they are violated by a security breach or exploited vulnerability it has the potential to have the biggest impact on your organization. Security for operating systems consists of protecting the OS components from attacks that could cause deletion, modification, or destruction of the operating system. Threats to an OS could consist of a breach of confidential information, unauthorized modification of data, or unauthorized destruction of data. It is the job of the cybersecurity engineer to understand the operations and vulnerabilities of the OS (whether it is a Microsoft, Linux, or another type of OS), and to provide mitigation, remediation, and defense against threats that would expose those vulnerabilities or attack the OS. There are six steps that will help you create your final deliverables. The deliverables for this project are as follows: 1. Security Assessment Report (SAR): This report should be a 7-8 page double-spaced Word document with citations in APA format. The page count does not include figures, diagrams, tables, or citations. 2. Nontechnical presentation: This is a set of 8-10 PowerPoint slides for upper management that summarizes your thoughts regarding the findings in your SAR.


3. In a Word document, share your lab experience and provide screen prints to demonstrate that you performed the lab. When you submit your project, your work will be evaluated using the competencies listed below. You can use the list below to self-check your work before submission. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Project 3 Assessing Information System Vulnerabilities and Risk CYB 610 Project 3 You are an Information Assurance Management Officer, IAMO, at an organization of your choosing. One morning, as you're getting ready for work, you see an email from Karen, your manager. She asks you to come to her office as soon as you get in. When you arrive to your work, you head straight to Karen's office. “Sorry for the impromptu meeting,” she says, “but we have a bit of an emergency. There's been a security breach at the Office of Personnel Management.” We don't know how this happened, but we need to make sure it doesn't happen again, says Karen. You'll be receiving an email with more information on the security breach. Use this info to assess the information system vulnerabilities of the Office of Personnel


Management. At your desk, you open Karen's email. She's given you an OPM report from the Office of the Inspector General, or OIG. You have studied the OPM OIG report and found that the hackers were able to gain access through compromised credentials. The security breach could have been prevented, if the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, had abided by previous auditing reports and security findings. In addition, access to the databases could have been prevented by implementing various encryption schemas and could have been identified after running regularly scheduled scans of the systems. Karen and the rest of the leadership team want you to compile your findings into a Security Assessment Report or SAR. You will also create a Risk Assessment Report, or RAR, in which you identify threats, vulnerabilities, risks, and likelihood of exploitation and suggested remediation The security posture of the information systems infrastructure of an organization should be regularly monitored and assessed (including software, hardware, firmware components, governance policies, and implementation of security controls). The monitoring and assessment of the infrastructure and its components, policies, and processes should also account for changes and new procurements that are sure to follow in order to stay in step with ever-changing information system technologies. The data breach at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is one of the largest in US government history. It provides a series of lessons learned for other organizations in industry and the public sector. Some critical security practices, such as lack of diligence to security controls and management of changes to the information systems infrastructure were cited as contributors to the massive data breach in the OPM Office of the Inspector General's (OIG) Final Audit Report, which can be found -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Project 4 Threat Analysis and ExploitationBottom of Form CYB610 Project 4 You are part of a collaborative team that was created to address cyber threats and exploitation of US financial systems critical infrastructure. Your team has been assembled by the White House Cyber National security staff to provide situational awareness about a current network breach and cyber attack against several financial service institutions. Your team consists of four roles, a representative from the financial services sector who has discovered the network breach and the cyber attacks. These attacks include distributed denial of service attacks, DDOS, web defacements, sensitive data exfiltration, and other attack vectors typical of this nation state actor. A representative from law enforcement who has provided additional evidence of network attacks found using network defense tools. A representative from the intelligence agency who has identified the nation state actor from numerous public and government provided threat intelligence reports. This representative will provide threat intelligence on the tools, techniques, and procedures of this nation state actor. A representative from the Department of Homeland Security who will provide the risk, response, and recovery actions taken as a result of this cyber threat. Your team will have to provide education and security awareness to the financial services sector about the threats, vulnerabilities, risks, and risk mitigation and remediation procedures to be implemented to maintain a robust security posture. Finally, your team will take the lessons learned


from this cyber incident and share that knowledge with the rest of the cyber threat analysis community. At the end of the response to this cyber incident, your team will provide two deliverables, a situational analysis report, or SAR, to the White House Cyber National security staff and an After Action Report and lesson learned to the cyber threat analyst community. US critical infrastructure-power—water, oil and natural gas, military systems, financial systems—have become the target of cyber and physical attacks as more critical infrastructure systems are integrated with the Internet and other digital controls systems. The lesson learned in defending and mitigating cyberattacks is that no entity can prevent or resolve cyberattacks on its own. Collaboration and information sharing is key for success and survival. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Project 5 Cryptography CYB610 Project 5 You are an enterprise security architect for a company in a semiconductor manufacturing industry where maintaining competitive advantage and protecting intellectual property is vital. You're in charge of security operations and strategic security planning.


Your responsibilities include devising the security protocols for identification, access, and authorization management. You recently implemented cryptography algorithms to protect the information organization. Leadership is pleased with your efforts and would like you to take protection methods even further. They've asked you to study cyberattacks against different cryptography mechanisms and deploy access control programs to prevent those types of attacks. We'd like you to create plans for future security technology deployments, says one senior manager. And provide documentation so that others can carry out the deployments. A director chimes in, but you should also devise a method for ensuring the identification, integrity, and nonrepudiation of information in transit at rest and in use within the organization. As the enterprise security architect, you are responsible for providing the following deliverables. Create a network security vulnerability and threat table in which you outline the security architecture of the organization, the cryptographic means of protecting the assets of the organizations, the types of known attacks against those protections, and means to ward off the attacks. This document will help you manage the current configuration of the security architecture. Create a Common Access Card, CAC deployment strategy, in which you describe the CAC implementation and deployment and encryption methodology for information security professionals. Create an email security strategy in which you provide the public key, private key hashing methodology to determine the best key management system for your organization. These documents will provide a security overview for the leadership in your company Encryption uses cryptographic algorithms to obfuscate data. These complex algorithms transform data from human readable plaintext into encrypted cipher text. Encryption uses the principles of substitution and permutation to ensure that data is transformed in a non-deterministic manner by allowing the user to select the password or a key to encrypt a message. The recipient must know the key in order to decrypt the message, translating it back into the human readable plaintext.


There are six steps that will lead you through this project. After beginning with the workplace scenario, continue to Step 1: "IT Systems Architecture." The deliverables for this project are as follows: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
