Security and the Office of Personnel Management’s compromise
This week we discuss security and the Office of Personnel Management’s compromise is clearly illustrated in a case study that is offered up in your readings. After reviewing the slides this week, find a recent article (no more than 12 months Dark Reading is a very good source online) addressing a breach within a company or government agency. Your discussion should address the following in the following separate, brief, paragraphs:
1. Summarize the breach: What was stolen/compromised? When did the breach occur? How did it occur? Research and find out if there were any financial penalties assessed as a result of the breach.
2. Discuss the vulnerabilities that were present in either a lack of technical controls or processes.
3. Strategic Planning: Assume you were an advisor or officer at the corporation or agency. What could have been done from a strategic planning perspective to have reduced the liklihood or impact of this breach?
