MCS 2946 Case Study Two

Data breach can be defined as an incident in which sensitive, protected, or confidential data has potentially been viewed, stolen, or used by an individual unauthorized. Data breaches may involve payment card information, personal health information, personally identifiable information, trade secrets, or intellectual property.

 

Data breaches have gained widespread attention as businesses of all sizes become increasingly reliant on digital data, cloud computing, and workforce mobility. With sensitive business data stored on local machines, on enterprise databases, and on cloud servers, breaching a company’s data has become as simple or as complex as gaining access to restricted networks. The following website keeps track of the World’s Biggest Data Breaches in the last 10 years.

You are required to identify one organization in the last three years from the provided link (except Solar Winds), expand on it, and analyze the report provided for the chosen organization. Ensure that the chosen organization has sufficient information.

This case study requires you to demonstrate the ability to investigate the security risk management issues in the chosen organization based on a real-life case study and answer the questions that follow. Each team should read and understand the case study and provide detailed answers in their own words. In your report, you will be required to follow prescribed procedures to evaluate risk levels and the potential impact of threats and vulnerabilities for a real-life organization and recommend controls, risk decisions, and security architecture.

 

You will be assessed on your ability to analyze the security requirements and objectives of the organization as well as the efficacy of the risk management strategies and controls that have to be implemented.
