III. Application/End-User Security Recommendations In this final report, I will include all of my recommendation for applications and end-user procedures that must be follow. My priority will be to educate users about all of the security risks that they could encounter and how they can avoid becoming another victim of a cyber-attack. These recommendations will benefit the firm’s security and protect the information of all the individuals that work in the building. Policies and rules need to be place and must be follow in order to keep the network and systems protected at all times.

Only by teaching and ensuring that employees learn about these risks is how you will prevent security incidents in your organization. A group of experience teachers on the subject must provide the training via email notification, video conference, reminders, and virtual classes. Users must be educated in how to manage their email account and be able to identify between safe emails and spam emails.

    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.
