Single Sign-On (SSO) is an exceptionally convenient access management mechanism.

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an exceptionally convenient access management mechanism. Single sign-on is a mechanism used to simplify the login process for a connected group of websites and applications. “Multi-partner SSO worries me tremendously,” Kenneth S. Robb, a Cyber Security & Risk Consultant at Citadel Cyber Solutions. “It falls squarely in the “Convenience” model for users to hop back and forth between related systems.
Discuss 3 potential security risks with using Single Sign-On

Based on market trends, Gartner predicted security spending worldwide would have

Based on market trends, Gartner predicted security spending worldwide would have reached approx. $86 billion in 2016 and exceed this amount by 2020. However, there has been no evidence that this increase in spending has led to better security for many organizations. Maybe the real problem might be too much focus on investments in security technology and not placing enough attention on designing security architecture and infrastructure.
In your discussion, discuss THREE (3) reasons why you agreed or disagreed with the following statement:
Utilizing security frameworks such as the Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture (SABSA) or Open Security Architecture (OSA) to establish a common foundation for our network architecture is far more critical to sound security design than acquiring the best security technologies.

Many organizations have not established basic account policies which control how

Many organizations have not established basic account policies which control how to handle credentials or grant third parties access to their internal networks directly. For example, the security breach experienced by retailer Target. Target eventually proposed to pay $10 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over its massive 2013 data breach, according to court documents filed in the U.S. District Court in Minnesota on Wednesday. A third-party maintenance company was involved, and this shows that third-party agreements can pose security threats to companies of all sizes. Many companies have federate their partner access.
Discuss 3 other potential approaches to addressing the issue of third party access to company’s internal networks
Discuss 2 real risk from using trusted forests (transitive trust) / domains.

CSID found that amongst U.S. consumers, 61% reused the same password across multiple sites and 46% of them had 5 or more passwords to remember. You can, of course, use a federated system, which is used by platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Papal, and Amazon as an alternative to a username and password. See: Consumer Survey: Password Habits.
In your discussion, address the following:
Discuss 3 pros and 3 cons to using a federated system.

The CISO of the organization reaches out to you, the senior information security

The CISO of the organization reaches out to you, the senior information security officer, and tasks you with creating an agency-wide security awareness program. He states that he will give you all of his support to complete this project (remember, this is the first component of security awareness program). He hands you a security gap analysis (the second component of a security awareness program) that was conducted, which shows 10 major security findings. These 10 deficiencies will serve as the foundation for developing the agency’s security awareness program (see the Case Document for more details on the gap analysis)
Based on the scenario provided in the Case Document, develop the Introduction to your Proposal. In your introduction, be sure to include the purpose of the proposal, address the security concerns of the chief executive officer (CEO), explain why the security awareness proposal will be vital to the organization, describe how the security posture will be addressed, clarify how human factors will be assessed, and list any organizational factors that will contribute to the status of the security posture

Historically, there has been a range of well-structured attacks on many embedded systems, ranging from HVAC to vehicle control systems. Many embedded systems are mainly secured by strong password protection and encryption protocols such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Secure Shell (SSH). While IP networks employed firewalls, embedded systems do not commonly employ these types of security layers.
In your initial response, include the following:
Discuss 3 potential secure measures or technologies to make the embedded systems secure
Discuss 2 challenges of securing embedded systems
