In Step 1, you familiarized yourself with your assigned organization. Now it is time to write a cybersecurity overview. Write a three-page background summary that includes a general overview of cybersecurity and a section on enterprise cybersecurity.
Please include the following items in your general overview of cybersecurity:
Compare and contrast cybersecurity and computer security.
Discuss Data flows across networks. (Review Bits and Bytes, Non-Textual Data, Evolution of Communication systems, Computer Networks, Network Devices & Cablesand Network Protocols if you do not already have a working understanding of these topics.)
Discuss basic cybersecurity concepts and vulnerabilities, including flaws that can exist in software. (Review Systems Software, Application Software, Software Interaction and Programming if you do not already have a working understanding of these topics.)
Discuss common cybersecurity attacks. (Review A Closer Look at the Web and Web Markup Language if you do not already have a working understanding of these topics.)
Discuss penetration testing.
Discuss how to employ Network forensic analysis tools (NFAT) to identify software communications vulnerabilities.
Please include the following items in your enterprise cybersecurity section:
List and discuss the major concepts of enterprise cybersecurity.
Discuss the principles that underlie the development of an enterprise cybersecurity policy framework and implementation plan.
List the major types of cybersecurity threats that a modern enterprise might face.
You will attach this cybersecurity background summary to your security assessment in Step 5
