SEC-280 People & Security 2 WK2 Assignment James Kirn Page 1 of 1 Name ____Mike Alborn_____________ Date __9/15/11______ 1. There are two companies that produce different products. Company A makes nuts, bolts and various other fasteners; Company B is a metal plating company that uses various heavy metals in their plating processes. Compare and contrast the risks that each company is exposed to from inside & outside attackers. They both probably use machines for most of the work so an attacker could disrupt the programming in the machines and halt all work. The attacker might have a different motivation for the two different companies. 2. Why is it that personnel are considered to be the weakest link in the security of a corporation? They have the most experience with the system and know the most of the workarounds to the system. They also have the biggest grudge against the management of the company. If it is the personnel that set up the security system, they even know the ins and outs of the security system and how to get past it.

    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.
