3 Summary Of P3 For P3, as well as discussing the general security risks which threaten the integrity of data, learners should define the laws and guidelines that a particular website has to adhere to. This could include, for instance, a website that stores users’ details, it will be legally required to comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA). Learners should write a short report, with the use of screen grabs, to evidence their understanding. Overview of security protection mechanisms: firewalls; Secure Socket Layers (SSL); adherence to standards eg strong passwords

Add the title “The security risks and protection mechanisms involved in website performance” Introduce and summarise your work Cover these areas: Risks Different site types different risks (hacking, viruses, spam, denial of service). Social networks & blogs vs E-Commerce Examples of websites that have been compromised e.g. Sony Security Solutions Server security (e.g. Firewalls / SSL) Good guidance / technology on stopping hacking / malware in organisation On site / page security (e.g. encryption, passwords, captcha, authentication, E-Commerce verification of payment) Legal & Public Perception Protection Data Protection Act- are you within the law? CDPA Act- are you within the law? Public Perception- are you ethical in your business practices / political allegiances- could this cause unwanted attention?

5 What Is A Firewall? A firewall is software or hardware that checks information coming from the Internet or a network, and then either blocks it or allows it to pass through to your computer, depending on your firewall settings. A firewall can help prevent hackers or malicious software (such as worms) from gaining access to your computer through a network or the Internet. A firewall can also help stop your computer from sending malicious software to other computers.

6 How Does It Work? The following illustration shows how a firewall works: A firewall isn't the same thing as an antivirus program. To help protect your computer, you need both a firewall and an antivirus and anti-malware program.

7 What Is SSL? SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
