The CIO has seen reports of malicious activity being on the rise and has become extremely concerned with the protection of the intellectual property and highly sensitive data maintained by your organization. As one of your first tasks with the organization, the CIO requested you identify and draft a report identifying potential malicious attacks, threats, and vulnerabilities specific to your organization. Further, the CIO would like you to briefly explain each item and the potential impact it could have on the organization. 

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Analyze three (3) specific potential malicious attacks and / or threats that could be carried out against the network and organization.
  2. Explain in detail the potential impact of the three (3) selected malicious attacks.
  3. Propose the security controls that you would consider implementing in order to protect against the selected potential malicious attacks.
  4. Analyze three (3) potential concerns for data loss and data theft that may exist in the documented network.
  5. Explicate the potential impact of the three (3) selected concerns for data loss and data theft.
  6. Propose the security controls that you would consider implementing in order to protect against the selected concerns for data loss and data theft.
  7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment (no more than 2-3 years old) from material outside the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
