Cyber-Attack Using Malicious Software
“A cyber-attack using malicious software is an attack that uses unauthorized access, data manipulation, or unauthorized access control to compromise a network or network resource. Data security in a network environment is a high priority for security professionals. ” This is a very vague definition. Who would be allowed to modify anything in the system? The most likely answer is that the attacker needs to have the access, and then has to have the ability to manipulate that access.
The word “attack” in the context of a cyber-attack is very broad. There are many forms of attack that have been called that. For example, from the perspective of the attacker, a computer virus attack is considered a form of attack, but from the point of view of the victim, that is an attack. There are many different attacks, some more harmful than others, and some are as benign as a bad password. There is no real attack that is more benign than a bad password, but the same cannot be said for all attacks.
Since this is the first article I have written, I will first discuss the nature of an attack, then define the four types of attacks, and then discuss what you can do to defend against them.
There are four common types of attacks. Each attack type has some very specific characteristics that make it much more dangerous than the other types.
DoS attacks are when an attacker (a. an individual) has maliciously flooded their server or network with traffic (i. requests for services). An attacker is using this to gain access to the information or resources of another computer.
The result of this is that the server or network resource is inaccessible to the user, and thus the user cannot perform any work on that computer. This is not a type of attack that can usually be stopped. As such, this form of attack is considered the most dangerous as it is most likely to be used by malicious individuals who have no idea they are doing it.
Brute force attack is when an attacker is using brute force to try and compromise the system.
Real-time event monitoring for Manchester Airport Group Using Bridewell Consulting.
Article Title: Real-time event monitoring for Manchester Airport Group Using Bridewell Consulting | Network Security.
For all of Manchester’s 1,500 commercial aircraft, 1,300 of which are passenger aircraft, the Royal Air Force’s Manchester Air Traffic Control (MACC) is responsible for the coordination of all aviation traffic throughout the Air Navigation Service Area (NASA) of the United Kingdom.
The ACC operates at all times under the guidance of the NASA (including the UK-wide Regional Aviation Area) and is not subject to any Civil Aviation Authority or other governing agency in the United Kingdom.
MACC’s communications are managed by the ACC Headquarters, based at RAF Valley, Manchester, with the Deputy Chief of Air Force and Head of NASA supporting the ACC headquarters. All communications and decisions of the ACC Headquarters are monitored by senior ACC personnel.
In a business environment where communication is a key component of the day-to-day operations of business entities, there is an acute need to provide real-time event monitoring. When the aircraft take off or land at an airport, or in the event of a change of control, the ACC is responsible for maintaining all airport airspace and ensuring the aircraft are in control of all airport resources. To meet the demands of the business environment with real-time events, the ACC has a number of tools to assist the ACC Operations Control Unit (ACOCU), who is responsible for the ACC’s continuous monitoring of its various elements of communication.
It is the ACC Operations Control Unit’s role to monitor the ACOCU’s communications in order to ensure the ACC is aware of all aircraft movements throughout NASA and the UK over the duration of the aircraft lifecycle, as well as the events that affect the safety of passengers and crews.
The ACC Operations Control Unit monitors the ACOCU’s communications for the following reasons, as per SIPTU and ATC Guideline 7.
The ACC Operations Control Unit monitors the ACOCU’s communications to ensure that it is being monitored by the ACC Operations Control Unit so the ACC can monitor aircraft movements.
The ACC Operations Control Unit monitors the ACOCU’s communications in order to provide all relevant information regarding the aircraft that is of interest to the ACC.
Training the first line analysts at MAG.
The first line of defence in every security incident is the customer service contact — an officer with the expertise to provide advice and guidance in times of conflict.
With the rise of the customer service contact, there is significant opportunity for first line analysts to be involved in the incident management and incident chain of command.
Training the first line analysts at the MAST Level 2 and Level 3 Incident management Training is an entry level training course.
The course is taught by experienced members of the Security Force with an interest in the subject matter, but with the flexibility to address any issue.
The course combines the practical aspects of the Security Force into a training experience appropriate for first line analysts of all levels, who are part of the incident management team as they are expected to be in the incident chain of command.
The course is taught using a combination of theory and hands on exercises which simulate the incident chain of command, using both pre-existing and novel threats.
This course is open to anyone, regardless of rank. It is only for those who, as a first line analyst, can be expected to be involved in the chain of command.
The course is not intended for anyone who has been directly involved in an incident; however, it will give you a basic understanding of the principles of event management and incident management for those who are new to the field.
While this course is not intended to replace current first line training, it can be a useful tool alongside the existing training and could be beneficial to those who wish to acquire this skill.
The course is intended for anyone who is interested on the subject matter, but doesn’t have the practical experience or familiarity with the material in these courses.
The course content is not complete training for you to be a first line analyst.
The impact of third party compromise on airline and airport security.
Article Title: The impact of third party compromise on airline and airport security | Network Security.
In 2016, the Global Times (GT) published a series of articles, describing the impact of third-party compromise (TPC) on the security of airlines and airports, based on studies by several NGOs that concluded that the phenomenon was significantly affecting the security of air passengers and cargo.
At the time of the articles, the number of security incidents involving passengers and cargo on commercial carriers around the world in 2016 was more than 500,000. The articles also reported that the phenomenon was affecting security personnel stationed in many airports around the world. According to the articles, these security personnel were affected either by the existence of these TPC cases in their own agencies or were required to devote time and efforts to monitor and investigate each TPC incident with which he or she came into contact.
According to the GT article, the security incidents caused by TPC are increasing. Moreover, many security personnel who are stationed in airports and airlines still do not know whether a particular incident took place or not. Furthermore, many of the security incidents attributed to the presence of TPC are in fact unconfirmed cases, making it difficult to determine whether the TPC case actually led to an accident or was simply an isolated occurrence that took place before the arrival of a high-risk passenger. Moreover, although each TPC incident reported by NGOs is independently analyzed by these NGOs, the NGOs often do not compare or directly compare the cases they analyzed. They do not always conduct independent research, and they may not always report the data in an open and transparent way. The result is that the true number of incidents is, in many cases, unknown.
According to the GT article, it appears that TPC cases are not only affecting air passengers and cargo but also impacting security personnel stationed in airports around the world. The security personnel who were stationed in airports around the world, especially those involved in the aviation inspection and control process, may still perceive that TPC cases are not serious, or they may even think that the incidents are being ignored because security personnel stationed at airports cannot directly confront them.
In addition, although TPC cases may appear to be unimportant and insignificant, some security personnel stationed at airports may still be afraid of them, and they may even ignore them, causing a vicious cycle of security incidents and inaction.
