Exercises

3.  Assume you have been asked to review the power needs of a stand-alone computer system that process important but noncritical data.

Which UPS features are most important to such a system? Which type of UPS do you recommend for it?

6.  Search the Web for a UPS that provides the wattage necessary to run the systems described in Exercise 5 for 15 minutes during a power outage

Case Exercises

1.  Based on this case study, what security awareness measures, training documents, and posters had an impact on this event?

 

-      Having posters about tailgating was a strong impact on Amy as she was able to recognize the threat of tailgating and hopefully now a few other coworkers will also be more aware of this. Even having that meeting about physical security was good as it put some people on the watch of security while other played it off.

 

2.  Do you think Amy should have done anything differently? What would you have done in her situation?

 

-      Amy should of tailed the blond guy to see where he was going and what he was doing and I would of done as I suggested and watched for any suspicious actions, but still would have had the security waiting for him at all exits. I think I would also shut the door when closing it to make sure even if it was someone, I knew I still would.

 

 

Ethical Decision Making

1.  Suppose that the blond man in the scenario was someone Amy knew socially. Suppose she also knew he had no relationship to the company and no business being in the building. If Amy chose not to make a report about the event, would she be violating her ethical position?

 

-      Yes, as she has a duty of protecting the confidentiality and integrity of information of the business and should figure out why this specific person was here just for record.
