Executive Summary At this time the measures available to ensure information security include organizational controls such as limiting access to data, firewalls, antivirus systems, encryption, and application controls. When the security of the business fails and the private information of individuals is compromised the company faces many legal actions that can ruin the success of the organization. One way companies use information security that I find to be very helpful is encrypting (Rainer & Turban, 2009). Encrypting ensures that information is protected which is very important to me. Even if a cybercriminal is able to enter into a business’s network and collect information, the information will be encrypted and difficult for a hacker to use to his or her advantage.
Backing up information can help safe the companies if any data is lost, and the companies would be able to recover the data that was lost. Security Security consideration features for information systems will vary for the type of information held, but the basic features will hold the information securely. The major security features for the company systems will include a login using a user ID and password, user authorization, and priority access. The security features would also use the four access control models of Identification, Authentication, Authorization, and Accountability. The access control would use the mandatory access control (MAC), which is a structured and coordinated within a data scheme that rates the information collection and the users (Whiteman & Mattord, "Ch 6: Security Management Models," 2010).
For effective incidence response, it is essential to quickly convene a team of representatives that includes members from both the cloud provider and the service subscriber. This is important as the remedy for an attack may involve a single party or require the participation of both parties. Another possible issue that may arise during incidence response is that, resolving the current issue may affect other subscribers of the cloud service.

It is not just enough to have a secure infrastructure setup as a one-time effort but continuous monitoring is necessary to ensure no security breach takes place. A well configured intrusion detection system is the first step to ensuring a network that is constantly monitored. Firewalls, constantly updated antivirus programs, frequent and prompt software updates in addition to penetration testing could help organizations falling target to outsider attack. While organizations deal with trying to keep their business up and running through their websites, activists work hard trying to disrupt the offerings provided by these organizations to their customers. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a major means of unsettling a business.
• Ensure regular patching of systems, network and third party software are current and updated to prevent attackers exploiting vulnerabilities in unpatched, outdated, or unsupported programs. • Deploying a web application firewall, penetration testing, log reviews for suspicious activity, and immediate remediation of any/all vulnerabilities. • Incident response plan for responding and containing data breaches before they become a major corporation catastrophe. • Extensive background checks on all employees and new hires; and vigilant presences monitoring employee/visitor security entry points as a deterrence of any possible insider or outsider threat. • Employee information security awareness training, in addition, making aware the different security threats, i.e.
The second way is data files themselves be coming corrupt this can be caused by viruses or to someone not backing up. Which is why it is important for companies like CaWRO to have the employees trained and that all the software like antivirus are up to date so that data is safe and impenetrable. Ethical issues When running a company such as CaWRO is a lot of ethical issues and not only for an individual inside the company but for a company as a whole.

For the company this will be a risk that they wouldn’t take as it may bring them a legal case if information was of an extreme content which was distributed inside the company's emails and internet.
Businesses need a strong firewall in order to prevent viruses, malware and other cyber threats and attacks. It is important that the firewall is monitored, reinforced, checked, and updated regularly by qualified IT services provider. All computers require the protection of a firewall, which is the key part to keep networked computers safe and secure. Having firewall makes the corporation a less attractive target. How much a corporate invests in firewalls inversely proportional as to how much it stands to lose in case of a successful attack.

Now it's requiring a full security department that monitors the network activity 24/7. It also limits the activity that companies can do because of the added security to the network, prevent invasions or viruses or hackers. Why do we need network security? Network security can be used under many different scenarios. For example, it can be used to keep company servers protected from the different departments.
