7.1 IS Security Part A
Our amusement park could be threatened by natural disasters such as hurricanes or mass floods. We can protect our company and our information by storing our backup information at a separate building away from our own building. Another threat that can happened to our company is an employee of ours sending other companies in the amusement park industry our ride designs and pretty much putting us out of business. A way we can stop that from happening is by giving access only to our top executives and limiting those who sees our blueprints. Links to outside business contacts is another form of threat to out company. Companies we could be doing business with can leak our plans out to the world before we even release them ourselves. To fix that problem we can just restrict the information we share with the other company and have a type of password on our files that we share where only we can get to all of our blueprints and plans. The last threat to our company is outside threats such as viruses. Viruses can infect our network and computer systems and completely destroy our systems and information. A solution to viruses is to try and update our viruses protection software on our systems and learn about the new viruses out there so we can couther act them and stay one step ahead.
