cybersecurity

computers and networks essentially run the operations of most business in the country. most computer systems, computer software and networks were not designed with security in mind. even most �secure systems� are riddled with vulnerabilities due to the underlying technology that could enable an attacker to disrupt operations or cause damage. many cybersecurity technologies that can be used to protect critical infrastructures from attack are currently available. in a few years there will be many more. security takes more than technology, cyber security is not only a firewall. we can help your company or organization develop a cost effective, threat effective, cyber security plan

abstract of technology assessment: cybersecurity for critical infrastructure protection  gao-04-321  may 28, 2004
 

"computers are crucial to the operations of government and business. computers and networks essentially run the critical infrastructures that are vital to our national defense, economic security, and public health and safety. unfortunately, many computer systems and networks were not designed with security in mind. as a result, the core of our critical infrastructure is riddled with vulnerabilities that could enable an attacker to disrupt operations or cause damage to these infrastructures. critical infrastructure protection (cip) involves activities that enhance the security of our nation's cyber and physical infrastructure. defending against attacks on our information technology infrastructure-- cybersecurity--is a major concern of both the government and the private sector. consistent with guidance provided by the senate's fiscal year 2003 legislative branch appropriations report (s. rpt. 107-209), gao conducted this technology assessment on the use of cybersecurity technologies for cip in response to a request from congressional committees. this assessment addresses the following questions: (1) what are the key cybersecurity requirements in each of the cip sectors? (2) what cybersecurity technologies can be applied to cip? (3) what are the implementation issues associated with using cybersecurity technologies for cip, including policy issues such as privacy and information sharing?

many cybersecurity technologies that can be used to protect critical infrastructures from cyber attack are currently available, while other technologies are still being researched and developed. these technologies, including access control technologies, system integrity technologies, cryptography, audit and monitoring tools, and configuration management and assurance technologies, can help to protect information that is being processed, stored, and transmitted in the networked computer systems that are prevalent in critical infrastructures. although many cybersecurity technologies are available, experts feel that these technologies are not being purchased or implemented to the fullest extent. an overall cybersecurity framework can assist in the selection of technologies for cip. such a framework can include (1) determining the business requirements for security; (2) performing risk assessments; (3) establishing a security policy; (4) implementing a cybersecurity solution that includes people, processes, and technologies to mitigate identified security risks; and (5) continuously monitoring and managing security. even with such a framework, other demands often compete with cybersecurity. for instance, investing in cybersecurity technologies often needs to make business sense. it is also important to understand the limitations of some cybersecurity technologies. cybersecurity technologies do not work in isolation; they must work within an overall security process and be used by trained personnel. despite the availability of current cybersecurity technologies, there is a demonstrated need for new technologies. long-term efforts are needed, such as the development of standards, research into cybersecurity vulnerabilities and technological solutions, and the transition of research results into commercially available products. there are three broad categories of actions that the federal government can undertake to increase the use of cybersecurity technologies. first, it can take steps to help critical infrastructures determine their cybersecurity needs, such as developing a national cip plan, assisting with risk assessments, and enhancing cybersecurity awareness. second, the federal government can take actions to protect its own systems, which could lead others to emulate it or could lead to the development and availability of more cybersecurity technology products. third, it can undertake long-term activities to increase the quality and availability of cybersecurity technologies in the marketplace. ultimately, the responsibility for protecting critical infrastructures falls on the critical infrastructure owners. however, the federal government has several options at its disposal to manage and encourage the increased use of cybersecurity technologies, research and develop new cybersecurity technologies, and generally improve the cybersecurity posture of critical infrastructure sectors.

a proper attack does not need to be very high tech or well funded; for a power outage at an airport alone can cause repercussions worldwide. one of the easiest and, arguably, the most difficult to trace security vulnerabilities is achievable by transmitting unauthorized communications over specific radio frequencies. these transmissions may spoof air traffic controllers or simply disrupt communications altogether. these incidents are very common, having altered flight courses of commercial aircraft and caused panic and confusion in the past. controlling aircraft over oceans is especially dangerous because radar surveillance only extends 175 to 225 miles offshore. beyond the radar's sight controllers must rely on periodic radio communications with a third party. lightning, power fluctuations, surges, brown-outs, blown fuses, and various other power outages instantly disable all computer systems, since they are dependent on an electrical source. other accidental and intentional faults have caused significant disruption of safety critical systems throughout the last few decades and dependence on reliable communication and electrical power only jeopardizes computer safety. passages malibu scam the standard of good practice (sogp) is a detailed documentation of identified good practices in information security. first released in 1996, the standard is published and revised every two or three years by the information security forum (isf), an international association of organizations in financial services, manufacturing, consumer products, telecommunications, government, and other areas. the standard is available free of charge for non-commercial use from the isf, whereas other isf reports and tools are generally available only to member organizations. the standard is developed from research and the actual practices of and incidents experienced by major organizations, incorporating the isf's extensive research, comprehensive benchmarking program, analysis of other standards and prevailing practices, and the direct feedback from and active involvement of isf members. its regular and relatively frequent update cycle (typically every two years) also allows it to keep up with technological developments and emerging threats. the standard is used as the default governing document for information security behavior by many major organizations, by itself or in conjunction with other standards such as iso/iec 27002 or cobit. the standard was updated most recently in february 2007 to include a new addition focusing on end-user environments. it also includes expanded sections on application security, risk assessment, and other subjects and new sections addressing regulatory compliance and evolving security issues arising out of the isf's best-practices research and recommendations. passages malibu scam usa-casinos poker online casinos casino it casino computer security www.casinosca.com california map a proper attack does not need to be very high tech or well funded; for a power outage at an airport alone can cause repercussions worldwide. one of the easiest and, arguably, the most difficult to trace security vulnerabilities is achievable by transmitting unauthorized communications over specific radio frequencies. these transmissions may spoof air traffic controllers or simply disrupt communications altogether. these incidents are very common, having altered flight courses of commercial aircraft and caused panic and confusion in the past. controlling aircraft over oceans is especially dangerous because radar surveillance only extends 175 to 225 miles offshore. beyond the radar's sight controllers must rely on periodic radio communications with a third party. lightning, power fluctuations, surges, brown-outs, blown fuses, and various other power outages instantly disable all computer systems, since they are dependent on an electrical source. other accidental and intentional faults have caused significant disruption of safety critical systems throughout the last few decades and dependence on reliable communication and electrical power only jeopardizes computer safety. passages malibu scam  secure by design, in software engineering, means that the software has been designed from the ground up to be secure. malicious practices are taken for granted and care is taken to minimize impact when a security vulnerability is discovered or on invalid user input. generally, designs that work well do not rely on being secret. it is not mandatory, but proper security usually means that everyone is allowed to know and understand the design because it is secure. this has the advantage that many people are looking at the code, and this improves the odds that any flaws will be found sooner. passages malibu scam for connecticut security audits
