Refer to the course scenario.IT systems do not operate alone in the modern enterprise, so securing them will involve securing their interfaces with other systems, as well as the system itself. It is important to know the different interconnections each system may have. During your review of the hospital’s current documents and files, you run across an IT systems connection table that was never completed by your predecessors. This document has a table that shows the relationship between multiple IT systems.Complete the IT System Connection Table.Submit your assignment.
IT System Connection Table
When securing the modern enterprise, consider that IT systems do not operate alone. Securing them involves securing their interfaces with other systems as well. It is important to know the different interconnections each system may have.
Fill out the table below for four IT systems. Include the following:
- Note two enterprise systems they connect with and their connection type.
- Note two security vulnerabilities the connection may have and 2 to 4 ways each vulnerability could be potentially exploited.
Consider the following as you build your table:
- Two example rows have been entered into the table.
- Keep in mind that enterprise systems cover a certain task in the enterprise (HR, CRM, identity management, etc.). They are not the components of a system (such as servers).
- Connections can often be a direct connection/pipe, a file, a common database or something else.
- The vulnerability is what would make the connection vulnerable to an attack.
- The related risk is an attack that could target the weakness.
