|Assignment 2||MGD 426
Risk Management for Digital Industries
A 4th year course at the University of Toronto at Mississauga
Threat Risk Vulnerability, Countermeasures
Focus on identifying some of the most current threats to Digital Industries
This assignment will have students researching specific examples of threat(s) to an enterprise operating in a business sector in which the product they sell, or the products they buy, are mostly in digital form.
Reason for the assignment
|One of the biggest challenges
in 2014 is recognizing a threat.
Why is it hard to see a threat?
Threats to a digital enterprise can be purely digital, and therefore intangible, or they can be a physical device which captures or effects the shape or format or integriety of some digital information. (think of a hand held device which swipes the data off the magnetic stripe on a credit card)
The nature of the technological environment, and the applications in branded consumer products, is progressing at such a fast pace that there is an explosion (figuratively) in the variety of hand held devices that exist, which, can be used for nefarious purposes. Even something as simple as suppressing the shutter click sound on a smart phone allows someone to take a video of a person in a vulnerable situation such that they may inadvertently reveal the typing in of a password, or some other access control protocol.
What you do
Describe and analyze a threat.
Identify a particular kind of threat that would effect a an enterprise operating in a business sector in which the product they sell, or the products they buy, are mostly in digital form.
