Respond as if the network has already been breached. Adopting this mindset forces the IT team to prioritize the most business-critical parts of the network and use network segmentation as a strategy. When done correctly, network segmentation, achieved through the creation of network zones, limits the ability for a hacker to move laterally across a compromised network. Network segmentation requires continual updates and configurations, but it can mean the difference between a hacker getting only as far as an employee’s infected computer and helping themselves to the bank’s ATM systems. Implement an enterprise-wide security policy. A well-defined security policy serves as a crucial road map for any bank IT team to maintain a truly adaptive security architecture. It’s what helps the people tasked with protecting the bank’s systems determine the best way for the network to operate with minimal risk. Additionally, the security policy should take into consideration all regulatory and enterprise compliance requirements and how to apply timely patches to maintain compliance. Security policy enforcement. It’s one thing to have a security policy that defines how the IT platform behaves and another to actually validate that it is being enforced across your network. Doing the former but not the latter might allow you to comply with some regulations, but it won’t make your network safer. Organizations must constantly monitor their network for changes to configurations and ensure that these changes are approved and compliant with policy. It’s a collaborative effort across the enterprise—network operations, security operations, and the CIO.
Suppose that if you’ve ever tried to login to your online bank account and find that not all of your savings are being accounted for, it could be an indication that you’ve been targeted by cyber criminal. Although there are several ways that cyber criminals could have gotten your account data, there’s a fair chance you’ve accidentally come across a phishing website in the past, misinterpreting the login page of your online bank. Enlist all possible security measures to protect your online banking account from cyber criminals.

Question Title The Climate Crisis
Graded Discussion Board (GDB)
Due Date: January 27, 2020
Topic: The Climate Crisis
The objective of the activity:
To familiarize the students with the Global climate crises and the ways to be used in combating this situation
After attempting this GDB, students will be able to analyze and understand the causes of crises situation and come up with practical steps for the solution
Climate crisis has started to engulf the Globe, and it is causing far-reaching impacts that will affect all humans and other species on the face of Earth in severe ways. Glaciers are melting, ice on lakes and rivers is breaking earlier, and trees are blossoming sooner.
The effects of global climate change which the scientists predicted in the past are occurring now which include the rise in seawater level, melting of icebergs and intense weather spells.
Scientists are confident in mentioning that the global temperature will rise in the coming decades due to greenhouse gases generated by human activities. It has been forecasted that the temperatures will rise between 2.5 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of the next century.
With all these precarious developments, there are ever-increasing threats of floods, droughts, fires, loss of plant and animal species, destruction of economic resources and food chains in developing countries, and facing increased climate refugees.
Even though Pakistan is not much contributing towards global warming and climate change but still it is the seventh most affected country by this phenomenon. A report from the Global Change Impact Studies Center of Pakistan shows that the annual mean temperature of Pakistan has jumped up in the recent past with Sindh and Balochistan facing a greater increase. The average temperature of Pakistan has risen by 0.6 °C during the last century.
Pakistan being the agriculture economy, will be adversely affected due to climate changes. The water cycle will be disturbed which will lead to a reduction in water availability resulting in decreased production.
Climate crisis is not only faced by Pakistan but it is a global challenge and the most urgent issue irrespective of any borders which require coordinated efforts by all the individuals and countries to combat.
Point of Discussion:
In your opinion, how can we contribute to combat the climate crisis individually? Suggest at least five practical measures.
SPECIAL NOTE: Avoid copying material from the internet. Such GDB responses will be marked ZERO straightaway.
