Project #75620 - Security Attacks and Attackers

You cannot tell an attacker’s motivation from the kind of attack. Attackers with different motivations may all perpetrate the same type of attack. On the other hand, an attacker with a single motivation may execute several different forms of attacks. Understanding the motives of the attackers can help you recognize what resources are most likely to be threatened and can thus facilitate developing successful security countermeasures. For this Discussion, you analyze the motivations of attackers of information systems in organizations, differentiate between security attacks and legitimate traffic, and suggest countermeasures against attackers.

Identify a scenario where two instances of suspicious intrusive activities were detected in a computer information system. The two activities might or might not be of the same type (i.e., spam, phishing, DOS, etc.). 

·         Briefly describe the scenario. For each activity, how would you determine if it was legitimate network traffic or an attack?

·         Next, suppose you have discovered that one of the two instances of activities in the above scenario was an attack.

o    Explain if it’s an attack against confidentiality, integrity, or availability and explain the level of impact of the attack.

o    How would you determine the motivation of the attacker, and what other types of attacks might you need to anticipate based on that motivation?

 

o    What countermeasures would you develop to defend against the anticipated attacks based on that motivation?
