IT Security


††††††††† 4. Using the Internet, determine what applications are commercially available to enable secure remote access to a pc.

††††††††† ††††††††† Windows allows people to set up remote connections right from the start, it seems. Setting up an allowance and connecting from afar are part of their support website.

††††††††† 5. Using a Microsoft windows system, open Internet Explorer. Click internet options on the tools menu. Examine the contents of the security and privacy tabs. How can these tabs be configured to be: a) content filtering and b) protection from unwanted items like cookies?

†††††††††††††††††† a) Internet explorer can filter content by clearing browsing history, stopping predictive text and stopping autofill urls.

†††††††††††††††††† b) Internet explorer can block cookies in general, and it can block pop ups, and clear clear cookies and extra built up data.

Case Exercises

1.     What questions do you think Kelvin should have included on his slide to start the discussion?

How much security is too much for SLS, what do we need to keep flexible, and is there anything specific what needs attention.

2.     If the questions were broken down into two categories, they would be cost versus maintaining high security while keeping flexibility. Which is more important for SLS?

With SLSís recent track record I would think security is more important than cost and flexibility for now.

Ethical Decision Making.

††††††††† I donít think itís super unethical to stack the odds in favor of one option, but it is usually a dick move in most company cases. Cases where the more expensive option is the same as the less expensive option but actually backed up is a bad move, while one of two options being better for specific occasions someone who knew what they needed would pick versus a more general option is a better move and completely ethical.

††††††††† Ms. Hamir would be ethically right in urging SLS to reconsider, backing up her stance with her own history and problems the more expensive option had resolved to try and sway them. Bringing up previous issues the company had that could have been resolved by the option would also be a good way to try and get SLS to reconsider.
