Principle of Information Security Exercise Chapter 1

1. Look up “the paper that started the study of computer security.” Prepare a summary of the key points. What in this paper specifically addresses security in previously unexamined areas?

2. Assume that a security model is needed for the protection of information in your class. Using the CNSS model, examine each of the cells and write a brief statement on how you would address the three components of each cell.

3. Using the Web, identify the chief executive officer (CEO), chief information officer (CIO), chief information security officer (CISO), and systems administrator for your school. Which of these people represents the data owner? Which represents the data custodian?

4. Using the Web, find a large company or government agency that is familiar to you or located in your area. Try to find the name of the CEO, the CIO, and the CISO. Which was easiest to find? Which was hardest?

5. Using the Web, find out more about Kevin Mitnick. What did he do? Who caught him? Write a short summary of his activities and explain why he is infamous.
