8 Introduction to MIS8 SunGard is a premier provider of computer backup facilities and disaster planning services. Its fleet of Mobile Data Centers can be outfitted with a variety of distributed systems hardware and delivered at a disaster site within 48 hours. Disaster Planning

9 Introduction to MIS9 Data Backup Backup is critical Offsite backup is critical Levels RAID (multiple drives) Real time replication Scheduled backups

10 Introduction to MIS10 Data Backup Offsite backups are critical. Frequent backups enable you to recover from disasters and mistakes. Use the network to backup PC data. Use duplicate mirrored servers for extreme reliability. UPS Power company

11 Introduction to MIS11 Attachment A 7F 3C 5D C 2E A E FA EA F 4F 73 9F User opens an attached program that contains hidden virus 2.Virus copies itself into other programs on the computer 3.Virus spreads until a certain date, then it deletes files. Virus code Virus From: afriend To: victim Message: Open the attachment for some excitement.

12 Introduction to MIS12 Dataquest, Inc; Computerworld 12/2/91 National Computer Security Association; Computerworld 5/6/96 Virus Damage 1999 virus costs in the U.S.: $7.6 billion. Attacks Viruses/Trojans/Worms Attacks on Web servers2448 Denial of Service3739 Insider physical theft or damage of equipment 4942 Insider electronic theft, destruction, or disclosure of data 2422 Fraud139

13 Introduction to MIS13 Stopping a Virus Backup your data! Never run applications unless you are certain they are safe. Never open executable attachments sent over the Internet--regardless of who mailed them. Antivirus software Needs constant updating Rarely catches current viruses Can interfere with other programs Ultimately, viruses sent over the Internet can be traced back to the original source.

14 Introduction to MIS14 User Identification Passwords Dial up service found 30% of people used same word People choose obvious Post-It notes Hints Dont use real words Dont use personal names Include non-alphabetic Change often Use at least 6 characters Alternatives: Biometrics Finger/hand print Voice recognition Retina/blood vessels Iris scanner DNA ? Password generator cards Comments Dont have to remember Reasonably accurate Price is dropping Nothing is perfect

16 Introduction to MIS16 Several methods exist to identify a person based on biological characteristics. Common techniques include fingerprint, handprint readers, and retinal scanners. More exotic devices include body shape sensors and this thermal facial reader which uses infrared imaging to identify the user. Biometrics: Thermal

17 Introduction to MIS17 Access Controls: Permissions in Windows Find the folder or directory in explorer. Right-click to set properties. On the Security tab,assign permissions.

18 Introduction to MIS18 Security Controls Access Control Ownership of data Read, Write, Execute, Delete, Change Permission, Take Ownership Security Monitoring Access logs Violations Lock-outs

19 Introduction to MIS19 Additional Controls Audits Monitoring Background checks:

20 Introduction to MIS20 Encryption: Single Key Encrypt and decrypt with the same key How do you get the key safely to the other party? What if there are many people involved? Fast encryption and decryption DES - old and falls to brute force attacks Triple DES - old but slightly harder to break with brute force. AES - new standard Plain text message Encrypted text Key: AES Encrypted text Plain text message AES Single key: e.g., AES

21 Introduction to MIS21 Alice Bob Message Public Keys Alice 29 Bob 17 Message Encrypted Private Key 13 Private Key 37 Use Bobs Public key Use Bobs Private key Alice sends message to Bob that only he can read. Encryption: Dual Key

22 Introduction to MIS22 Alice Bob Public Keys Alice 29 Bob 17 Private Key 13 Private Key 37 Use Bobs Public key Use Bobs Private key Bob sends message to Alice: His key guarantees it came from him. Her key prevents anyone else from reading message. Message Encrypt+T Encrypt+T+M Encrypt+M Use Alices Public key Use Alices Private key Transmission Dual Key: Authentication

23 Introduction to MIS23 Certificate Authority Public key Imposter could sign up for a public key. Need trusted organization. Only Verisign today, a public company with no regulation. Verisign mistakenly issued a certificate to an imposter claiming to work for Microsoft in Alice Public Keys Alice 29 Bob 17 Use Bobs Public key How does Alice know that it is really Bobs key? Trust the C.A. C.A. validate applicants

26 Introduction to MIS26 Denial Of Service Zombie PCs at homes, schools, and businesses. Weak security. Break in. Flood program. Coordinated flood attack. Targeted server.

27 Introduction to MIS27 Securing E-Commerce Servers 1. Install and maintain a working network firewall to protect data accessible via the Internet. 2. Keep security patches up-to-date. 3. Encrypt stored data. 4. Encrypt data sent across networks. 5. Use and regularly update anti-virus software. 6. Restrict access to data by business "need to know." 7. Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access to data. 8. Don't use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters. 9. Track access to data by unique ID. 10. Regularly test security systems and processes. 11. Maintain a policy that addresses information security for employees and contractors. 12. Restrict physical access to cardholder information.

36 Introduction to MIS36 Anonymity Anonymous servers: Dianetics church (L. Ron Hubbard) officials in the U.S. Sued a former employee for leaking confidential documents over the Internet. He posted them through a Danish anonymous server. The church pressured police to obtain the name of the poster. Zero knowledge server is more secure Should we allow anonymity on the Internet? Protects privacy Can encourage flow of information Chinese dissenters Government whistleblowers Can be used for criminal activity

37 Introduction to MIS37 Cases: Healthcare

38 Introduction to MIS38 What is the companys current status? What is the Internet strategy? How does the company use information technology? What are the prospects for the industry? Cases: Eli Lilly Owens & Minor, Inc.

39 Introduction to MIS39 Appendix: Digital Security Certificates Digital security certificates are used to encrypt and to authenticate the sender. Obtain a certificate from a certificate authority Verisign Thawte (owned by Verisign) Microsoft Your own company or agency Install the certificate in Outlook Select option boxes to encrypt or decrypt messages Install certificates sent by your friends and co-workers.

40 Introduction to MIS40 Obtaining a Certificate

41 Introduction to MIS41 Installing a Certificate 1.Tools + Options + Security tab 2.Choose your certificate 3.Check these boxes to add your digital signature and to encrypt messages. 4.These boxes set the default choices. For each message, you can use the options to check or uncheck these boxes.

42 Introduction to MIS42 Encrypting and Signing Messages Use the Options button and the Security Settings button to make sure the Encrypt and Signature boxes are checked. Then the encryption and decryption are automatic.
