Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Hochschule Deggendorf, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Arbeit behandelt das Thema Software Asset Management (SAM). Man kann SAM als Geschäftspraxis bezeichnen, die sich um die Einkaufsoptimierung und Verwaltung, sowie die Bereitstellung, Wartung, Nutzung und der Entsorgung von Software-Anwendungen innerhalb eines Unternehmens kümmert. In dieser Arbeit wird gezeigt, warum der Einsatz von SAM sinnvoll ist und wie Prozesse bei der Einführung von SAM optimiert werden können. Nach einer theoretischen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema, wird die Theorie anhand der Microsoft SAM Lösung aufgezeigt. Microsoft unterteilt hierbei ihre SAM Lösung in drei Bereiche: ? Sam Baseline ? SAM Assessment ? SAM Deployment Planning Im SAM Assessment werden die Prozesse aufgezeigt, die in einem Unternehmen implementiert werden sollten, um SAM dauerhaft zu leben. Durch ein SAM-Projekt wird Schritt für Schritt auf die Verbesserung der Prozesse hingearbeitet, da Probleme und Fehlverhalten aufgedeckt werden können. Im SAM - Deployment Planning gilt es dann, die entdeckten Probleme zu besprechen und Lösungen dafür zu finden. Die grundlegendsten Prozesse werden in der Arbeit grafisch dargestellt und analysiert.
Information is the currency of the information age and in many cases is the most valuable asset possessed by an organisation. Information security management is the discipline that focuses on protecting and securing these assets against the threats of natural disasters, fraud and other criminal activity, user error and system failure. Effective information security can be defined as the ‘preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.’ This book describes the approach taken by many organisations to realise these objectives. It discusses how information security cannot be achieved through technological means alone, but should include factors such as the organisation’s approach to risk and pragmatic day-to-day business operations. This Management Guide provides an overview of the implementation of an Information Security Management System that conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and which uses controls derived from ISO/IEC 17799:2005. It covers the following: Certification Risk Documentation and Project Management issues Process approach and the PDCA cycle Preparation for an Audit
Information is the currency of the information age and in many cases is the most valuable asset possessed by an organisation. Information security management is the discipline that focuses on protecting and securing these assets against the threats of natural disasters, fraud and other criminal activity, user error and system failure. This Management Guide provides an overview of the two international information security standards, ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 27002. These standards provide a basis for implementing information security controls to meet an organisation’s own business requirements as well as a set of controls for business relationships with other parties. This Guide provides: An introduction and overview to both the standards The background to the current version of the standards Links to other standards, such as ISO 9001, BS25999 and ISO 20000 Links to frameworks such as CobiT and ITIL Above all, this handy book describes how ISO 27001 and ISO 27002 interact to guide organizations in the development of best practice information security management systems.

A penetration tester or security consultant perform security tests both externally and internally for clients that include both physical and technical tests. See how Thomas Wilhelm throws traditional pen testing methods out the window for now and how thinking and acting like a ninja can actually grant quicker and more complete access to a company¿s assets. Get in before the hacker does by thinking outside of the box with these unorthodox techniques. Use all of the tools that the ninja has at his side such as disguise, espionage, stealth, and concealment. Learn how to benefit from these by laying plans, impersonating employees, infiltrating via alarm system evasion, discovering weak points and timing, spyware and keylogging software, and log manipulation and logic bombs. Ninja Hacking offers insight on how to conduct unorthodox attacks on computing networks, using disguise, espionage, stealth, and concealment. This book blends the ancient practices of Japanese ninjas, in particular the historical Ninjutsu techniques, with the present hacking methodologies. It looks at the methods used by malicious attackers in real-world situations and details unorthodox penetration testing techniques by getting inside the mind of a ninja. It also expands upon current penetration testing methodologies including new tactics for hardware and physical attacks. This book is organized into 17 chapters. The first two chapters incorporate the historical ninja into the modern hackers. The white-hat hackers are differentiated from the black-hat hackers. The function gaps between them are identified. The next chapters explore strategies and tactics using knowledge acquired from Sun Tzu´s The Art of War applied to a ninja hacking project. The use of disguise, impersonation, and infiltration in hacking is then discussed. Other chapters cover stealth, entering methods, espionage using concealment devices, covert listening devices, intelligence gathering and interrogation, surveillance, and sabotage. The book concludes by presenting ways to hide the attack locations and activities. This book will be of great value not only to penetration testers and security professionals, but also to network and system administrators as well as hackers.

Information security issues impact all organizations; however measures used to implement effective measures are often viewed as a businesses barrier costing a great deal of money. This practical title clearly explains the approaches that most organizations can consider and implement which helps turn Information Security management into an approachable, effective and well-understood tool. It covers: The quality requirements an organization may have for information; The risks associated with these quality requirements; The countermeasures that are necessary to mitigate these risks; Ensuring business continuity in the event of a disaster; When and whether to report incidents outside the organization. All information security concepts in this book are based on the ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 standards. But the text also refers to the other relevant international standards for information security. The text is structures as follows: Fundamental Principles of Security and Information security and Risk management. Architecture, processes and information, needed for basic understanding of what information security is about. Business Assets are discussed. Measures that can be taken to protect information assets. (Physical measures, technical measures and finally the organizational measures. ) The book also contains many Case Studies which usefully demonstrate how theory translates into an operating environment This book is primarily developed as a study book for anyone who wants to pass the ISFS (Information Security Foundation) exam of EXIN. In an appendix an ISFS model exam is given, with feedback to all multiple choice options, so that it can be used as a training for the ‘real’ ISFS exam.
This book explains the ongoing war between private business and cyber criminals, state-sponsored attackers, terrorists, and hacktivist groups. Further, it explores the risks posed by trusted employees that put critical information at risk through malice, negligence, or simply making a mistake. It clarifies the historical context of the current situation as it relates to cybersecurity, the challenges facing private business, and the fundamental changes organizations can make to better protect themselves. The problems we face are difficult, but they are not hopeless. Cybercrime continues to grow at an astounding rate. With constant coverage of cyber-attacks in the media, there is no shortage of awareness of increasing threats. Budgets have increased and executives are implementing stronger defenses. Nonetheless, breaches continue to increase in frequency and scope. Building a Comprehensive IT Security Program shares why organizations continue to fail to secure their critical information assets and explains the internal and external adversaries facing organizations today. This book supplies the necessary knowledge and skills to protect organizations better in the future by implementing a comprehensive approach to security. Jeremy Wittkops security expertise and critical experience provides insights into topics such as: Who is attempting to steal information and why? What are critical information assets?
