Week 6 Case Study

...Week 6 Case Virginia Pollard worked as a cashier and clerk for Teddy’s Supplies, a family-owned chain of film production equipment supply stores in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. During a routine performance evaluation, Virginia's supervisor at Teddy's complained that she made too many personal phone calls when she worked in the West Orange store. The supervisor noted this on Virginia's annual review, and warned her to keep personal calls to a bare minimum while at work. Soon thereafter, Teddy transferred Pollard to guard film equipment in the main warehouse behind the storefront; Virginia couldn't make personal calls there, and her work became exemplary. Her performance evaluation three months after her transfer was "meeting expectations" with no negative comments. Virginia Pollard was the only woman working in the warehouse, and she was often the victim of pranks perpetrated by her six male colleagues. Her co-workers taped her drawers shut, locked her out of the guard shack she sat in to watch the inventory, filled the guard shack with trash, and backed a forklift up to the door and made it backfire in her ear. One day a Teddy delivery driver sat in Pollard's chair and, when she tried to push him out of it, he bent her over his lap and spanked her. Pollard's new supervisor, Steve King, rarely enforced Teddy's rules against smoking, horseplay, foul language, and sexual harassment, and often indulged in such behaviors himself. Teddy's had a written sexual harassment policy......

Week 6 Case Study

...Kent Johnson SEC280 Instructor: R. Booth Week 6 Case study Here at gem security, it is important for our network and its resources to be kept secure from possible intrusion from outside sources. Installing of an IDS policy is an important thing in keeping the network safe. Installing a Network IDS (NIDS) onto a network requires a significant amount of thought and planning. In addition to the technical issues and product selection there are resource issues, from product cost to manning the sensor feeds and supporting the infrastructure that must also be considered. When installing an IDS a policy needs to be developed to ensure responsibilities are clearly defined. This is especially important when delivering an IDS capability remotely or to another organization's network. On the subject of failing hardware, people administering the target network must be made fully aware that if network taps are used, even fail safe taps can take up to a second for the interfaces to re-negotiate and could potentially disrupt services, though recent improvements have reduced this latency considerably. If the network is remote then it is advisable for the policy to reflect that the target network manpower can be called upon for a predefined duration for power resets, etc. Attempting this retrospectively through contractual alteration, if required, can be expensive and time consuming. If you rely on the distant network for support, ensure you have a telephone authentication......
