IT infrastructure has no security without access control.
Residency Assignment 2 – Practical Connection Team Research Paper
It was estimated that security breaches cost the U.S. economy between $57 billion and $109 billion in 2016. These malicious attacks directed at companies result in denial of service (DOS), data theft, intellectual property, and heavy financial loss. Confidentiality, integrity, and availability form the tenets of information security and are collectively known as the C-I-A triad. Access control mechanisms ensure all authorized users have access to required information on demand, while denying access to unauthorized users.
Topic: IT infrastructure has no security without access control.
Suggested points to consider as you research for the topic:
· Contrast access control in relations to risk, threat and vulnerability.
· Exemplify the concepts of confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA)
· Explain the relationship between access control and its impact on CIA (maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability).
· Describe access control and its level of importance within information security (include physical security).
· Argue the need for organizations to take implement access controls in relations to maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability (How safe is it to store customer information for repeat visits?)
