The Aim Higher College’s system administrators and network engineers have described seeing some strange behaviors such as high levels of traffic from many hosts that are causing system outages. The web servers of the college have been shutting down frequently by this traffic, it must be from a hacker group trying to attack the school with malicious software. I will review the network traffic from the college’s intrusion detection system and use an intrusion prevention system to block off these threats from the hackers.

Teach for America (or TFA) has this general thought that if teachers teach in a standardized way, there will always be success in classrooms all over America. What the TFA fails to realize is that there are hundreds of students with outside issues. There are students with ADD, ADHD, poor family lives, low-income housing, etc. According to Jameson Brewer (2012), a previous TFA member, “[The TSA] argues that all student actions in and outside of the classroom are informed by their teacher 's actions. It is then student actions that cause academic success or failure.”
Anthem is one of the United States’ largest health insurance companies. It is the largest managed health care company in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. In February of 2015, hackers stole the names, social security numbers, medical IDs, physical addresses, e-mail addresses, employment information, income data, birth dates and other personal information of about 80 million Anthem and other Blue Cross and Blue Shield members and former members. It is believed to be the largest cyber-attack that has ever occurred in health care history. It has been described as a very sophisticated attack. The source of this attack is still unknown, but several reports have linked it to Chinese hackers. All the company’s product lines were affected including Anthem Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and others. Anthem has 37.5 million members enrolled in its affiliated health plans and serves 68.5 million people through all its subsidiary businesses, which includes Medicaid. The CEO Joseph Swedish wrote to its members "I want to personally apologize to each of you for what has happened, as I know you expect us to protect your information. We will continue to do everything in our power to make our systems and security

Network modification is one of the action to be considered when DDoS attack occurs. In this situation incident response team could switch to different network by using domain name system (DNS). IP address are translated through DNS by their domain name and DNS and DNS responsibility is to allow the user to securely browse into any websites. Also, DNS allows to send and receive emails through any web browsers in any website. Incident team should distribute the attack traffic across the network of data center so it will delay the DDoS attack in spreading into other networks. At last, traffic should be sent to high capacity networks so it can go through scrubbing services.

Network attacks are continuing to rise. It is critical for the organization to have an effective Information Security Policy in order to reduce the chances of becoming a victim. In 2013, experts saw network attacks up to 50 Gbps, which resulted in an average cost of $32,469 per day to businesses. The average number of days to recover was 32 days, which brought costs up to $1,035,769 per attack. Thus far, 2014 network attacks have shattered 2013’s record with attacks averaging 200-400 Gbps in intensity. These figures are quite alarming when you consider that this is an estimate or average for a single attack. It is important to remember when dealing with information security, that there are many types of attacks and threats such as viruses, worms, malware, and spam. These attack both networks and systems, to disrupt operations in addition to reducing productivity.

A public utility company employed SecureState to repair their internal and external network security. Consequently, SecureState was able to access the network due to a variety of exploits. Many threats would not be present if systems were updated with the latest operating software and patches and were properly configured. This engagement revealed several critical problems within the client’s system, allowing SecureState to gain access to more resources than intended. The improperly segmented networks combined with easily exploitable vulnerabilities can allow attackers to gain access to entire networks potentially causing untold levels of damage.
