Executive Proposal Medi-Ready is a new up and coming medical research and development company. The company has played a key role in the development and introduction of some extraordinary medical and pharmaceutical products that have benefited people all around the world. Due to the recent success of Medi-Ready, the company has been the subject of numerous cyber-attacks that resulted in a disruption in business and production, a huge financial loss for the company and negative publicity for the company. As the IT Manager for Medi-Ready, it is my responsibility to ensure the safety of the network and that the network is readily available to all users of Medi-Ready. In order to maintain the organization’s efficiency and effectiveness, it is vital to understand our network’s vulnerabilities. What are the threats out there to our network? In a span of nine months, there have been several Denial of Service attacks to our network that jeopardize the operation and ability of Medi-Ready to function. The past 18 months have not shown any further security threats but that does not mean it won’t ever happen again. There is a necessity to understand current threats and our network’s vulnerabilities so that necessary countermeasures and stronger security protocols can be put in place to prevent further network attacks that can halt daily operations.

    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.
