MGMT 394 – Information Security Management Part 1: Review Questions 1. Why do networking components need more examination from an information security perspective than from a systems development perspective? Networking components are extracted from software and hardware because networking subsystems are often the focal point of attacks against a system” ( Whitman & Mattord, 2010, pg 280). Organizations need to make a distinction if a device is a computer or primarily a network device. A server computer that is used exclusively as a proxy server or bastion host may be classified as a networking component, while an identical server configured as a database server may be classified as hardware. For this reason, Whitman & Mattord (2010, pg. 280) suggest that they should be considered separately, rather than combined with general hardware and software components. From an information security point of view, one will able to examine each component breakdown of the network, and thereafter identify its vulnerabilities and perform cost benefit analysis. 2. What value would an automated asset inventory system have for the risk identification process?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
