Jonathan Velez CIS411 7/14/19 -Chapter 5 --Step 2 Ensuring that appropriate controls are in place for vulnerabilities associated with current software version. In this step we see that there are a number of controls in play and these include: software updates, config changes, and other roles. Knowing this I know that issues lie within software licensing, system patches, and employee responsibility. When it comes to licensing software the first step is checking to make sure any devices that are unlicensed obtain a license for specific software. This is important because unlicensed software can not obtain patches and security fixes when necessary and the company can get hit with severe fines. When purchasing software, it is important to log the date the software is obtained, and which devices have received the software with the license key. The license end date should also be logged in order to maintain a good standing with the vendor and to re-up on a license that may expire soon.

    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.
