Propose strategies and tools for cloud security




The use of security information event management (SIEM) software  detected that a malware attack originated from an international source.  As the cybersecurity analyst of NCU-FSB with critical infrastructure and  mission-sensitive information, you have determined that the external  hackers have the motivation to cause business disruption. The virus  penetrated the enterprise’s IT infrastructure, infecting servers,  desktops, and laptops; destroying information; and spreading ransomware.  The payload of the virus deleted mission-critical files and changed  file extensions for all database files.

The attacks have crippled the organization’s ability to make timely  business decisions. Further investigation of logs using a security  information event management application revealed that there had been  significant internal attacks including sniffing, MAC spoofing, WEP/WPA  cracking, AP spoofing, and DoS of the company resources due to the weak  wireless infrastructure. These attacks have weakened the security  posture of the organization.


For this assignment, you must write an academic paper in which you  address the malware attack. Your paper should include the following:

  • title and reference pages
  • Reasons why web-based applications are vulnerable.
  • Describe three attacks that can be levied on web servers and their applications. Support this description with supportive reference, where you will describe the economic and operational impact of these attacks,  either coming from malware, phishing, whaling, ransomware, or any other.
  • Recommend response procedures to be followed to contain the impact  and spread of the malicious code, mitigate further damage and regain  control of the network, applications or services. These recommendations  must include at least two tools recommended as part of the solutions  with their corresponding features to mitigate wireless network attacks.
  • Reasons why wireless networks are more vulnerable to attacks than wired networks.
  • Suggest risk responses in terms of:
  • Risk avoidance
  • Risk acceptance
  • Risk-sharing/transfer
  • Risk mitigation through the application of industry best principles and practices and information security policies
  • Monitor the infrastructure for security-related events
  • Securing of information assets

Length: 7-page academic paper

References: Minimum of 6 scholarly resources not more than 5 years old

The completed assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Include a plagiarism report
