Considering your place of employment or your home computing environment, discuss in detail the means in which each of the three tenets are addressed to mitigate risk and enhance security in your chosen environment. In my workplace, all three security tenets are strongly enforced. Our information systems are available 99.9% of the time.

The integrity of the information is protected by the user account controls implemented by the data administrators, who create views and profiles for each user. Additionally, network admins restrict access to the data servers themselves. The confidentiality is also protected by the user account controls.

...Week 1 Individual Assignment MKT Week 1 Individual Assignment The Meaning of Marketing The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines marketing as the process or technique of promoting, selling, and distributing a product or service (Merriam Webster, 2013). Merriam Webster further defines marketing as an aggregate of functions involved in moving goods from producer to consumer (Merriam Webster, 2013). Business Dictionary defines marketing as the management process through which goods and services move from concept to the customer. It includes the coordination of four elements called the 4 P's of marketing: Product, Price, Placement, and Promotional Strategy (Business Dictionary, 2013). I believe that marketing is as it has been described by both Merriam Webster and Business Dictionary. The purpose of marketing is to get a product or service from the producer of the product or service to the consumer who will use the product or service. I believe that the four P’s are fundamental in getting the product or service from the producer to the consumer. Marketing is extremely important to the success of any organization. Why Marketing is Important to an Organizations Success There are many reasons that marketing is important to the success of any organization.

Provide a brief explanation with each example. Refer to Ch. 1 in the text for explanations of these dimensions. Physical health: Exercise at least five days a week. Physical fitness has to be up to par to stay in the military. I usually watch my diet because I am not as young as I use to be. Social health: Right now I really do not have a social life. It might not be healthy but I guess I do it to protect myself. Having to move around a lot does not allow me to build the friendships that I am looking for. Intellectual health: Being in the military sometimes requires critical thinking to complete a mission. Many times it’s accomplishing a mission that you have already done. I usually refer back to those past missions and put together the pieces that I need to accomplish the new one. I take to account failures and successes of my past missions and use it for the current one. I also take in to account other people’s failures and successes. Environmental health: I try to surround myself with people I can learn from.

...necessary to evaluate the sales position. Since the business strategy has dramatically changed, the sales position has dramatically changed as well. New job analyses and workforce plans need to be created and new teams selected. While there are numerous selection methods, the selection methods determined appropriate for this new sales team is a peer assessment, an interview, and recommendations. It has become necessary to create five new positions. The positions will consist of: (1) Senior Manager, (1) Sales Team Leader (3) Sales Representatives. Focusing on the talent available and the identified job descriptions a review of the available employees was performed, placing emphasis on the soft skills, which are harder to develop. It is my recommendation that for these newly created positions we hire out side of the company. It’s a great idea to consider an internal candidate for a critical position opening and compare him to the slate if outside candidates.

...Week 1 Assignment 1 Michael Conley ITT Technical Institute Abstract This paper will be identifying, analyzing, and explaining five likely threat/vulnerabilities for the scenario given. I will go into detail on what you should do to lower the risk or vulnerability. The last thing I will talk about in this paper is what you should do to try and make it better and more secure. There are definitely some potential risks and vulnerabilities with the given scenario. The first one to point out would be that they are using Windows Vista. Another issue is the VPN connection with the laptops. Issue number three would be the servers. The fourth problem I foresee is back up. The final problem I see in the network is with the ISP. This is not a very old and outdated OS, since Microsoft is still supporting it, but there are more vulnerabilities with using Vista as opposed to Windows 7. Windows 7 is also more versatile, it is able to be run on more than just desktops unlike Vista. Windows 7 is able to be used on laptops, desktops, and netbooks which Vista cannot be used on all of those. Windows 7 puts all of the security notifications and other system problems in one place unlike Vista where you have to search through the control panel to find things. Windows 7 you just go to the action center. The likelihood of there being a serious security issue with windows Vista is low for right now.......

Week 1 Dq 1

...Week 1 DQ 1 Why is it important that financial accounting systems report performance fairly and factually? Financial accounting systems are responsible for recording, monitoring and maintaining all financial and accounting transactions within an organization. It is crucial that financial accounting systems report performance fairly and factually because the information within the system is required for the organization to make good economic decisions that could make or break the entire business. The reports that are created by financial accounting systems are used to provide information to outside parties such as tax experts, creditors, and/or potential investors. Inaccurate financial reports can lead an organization to experience legal issues, financial fraud, and can cause a bad reputation for the overall organization. In order to maintain and grow a profitable business, organizations must rely on fair and factual financial reports. Financial accounting systems must also report performance fairly and factually to ensure that the organization is performing and operating properly. An inaccurate financial report, for example, can cause an organization to make an economic decision that the organization may not be able to afford to do. In a health care organization, financial reports must also be accurate to avoid errors in medical billing that can lead the organization to lawsuits and major financial losses. Financial reports that are not created fairly and......
