Description:

This paper provides information about security and online privacy regulations and how they relate to establishing and maintaining online security, and is oriented primarily toward young adults. The paper refers frequently to Steffani Burd's study, which aimed to determine if existing risk exposure is addressed by security controls that are in place, and Adrian Muntenu's text on risk assessment and analysis. The paper discusses qualitative risk assessment, and contains formulas for calculating risk exposure. This paper also contains illustrative charts, risk assessment questionnaires, and instructions for setting up network data collection.

From the Paper:

"Participants are asked to indicate the programs currently used for: (1) Anti-Virus; (2) Firewall; and (3) IDS/IPS. Furthermore, participants are asked, of all technologies utilized, which one they believe is the most effective in maintaining the security of the network and which is the least effective in maintaining network security. Participants are quizzed as to what they anticipate will be the top three technologies that the institution will use in the upcoming 1-3 years to ensure information security. In the section of the interview entitled 'Resources,' the questions asked are those as follows:
(1) How many staff at your institution have a role dedicated to information security?
Part-time IT staff: _________________
Full-time IT staff: __________________"
