Data Breaches

Data Breaches

In this day and age, data breaches have increased in quantity and intensity. Therefore, it is essential that cybersecurity professionals assess situations that could threaten the security of an organization’s intellectual property.

Research a data breach, ransomware, or data exfiltration attack that has occurred within the last six months that successfully compromised an organization. Address the following:

  1. Describe the failure of the security measures by detailing how the attacker made the breach.
  2. Describe how the attacker was able to get in and out of the system, as well as the threat vector.
  3. Examine and explain the effects of the attack on the various stakeholders. Include nontechnical elements of the entire organization (e.g., public relations, marketing, and/or sales). What are some of the complexities of integrating technical solutions into nontechnical business frameworks that are applicable to this situation?
  4. Describe ethical practices related to data and system security supported by a Christian worldview perspective. Include the ethical practices the organization could have implemented, both prior to and after the attack. How might having a Christian worldview perspective impact the response sent to consumers for a security incident?

Make sure to support the summary with a minimum of three resources other than the textbook.
