You have been asked to give a presentation at an online training session for employees who are
now working from home. The subject of this training session is: Access Controls and Why They Matter.
Background: Access controls are security features that are usually considered the first line of defense in asset
protection. They are used to dictate how subjects access objects, and their main goal is to protect the objects
from unauthorized access. Access control models are frameworks that use access controls to enforce the rules
and objectives of the model (e.g. MAC, DAC, RBAC).
For this training, you should focus on the need to use Access Controls to protect corporate assets and data
which are accessible via equipment and networks within the Work From Home setting. In your talking points
you should also consider and address the frustrations that employees may feel when they encounter access
controls that are not set up to allow the same type of “inside” access as employees had when working on
company equipment inside company networks. (Explain why “turning off” access controls is not an acceptable
solution to remote access to internal networks and resources.) Finally, address some potential “insider threats”
which may exist in the Work From Home environment that need the countermeasures provided by access
controls. Such threats could include the actions of others residing in the home who have access to the
employee’s laptops or who use the same networks and network connections
kimming has become another way of trying to obtain knowledge. Author Nicholas Carr states, “We’ve always skimmed newspapers more than we’ve read them, and we routinely run our eyes over books and magazines to get the gist of a piece of writing and decide whether it warrants more thorough reading.”Skimming does not allow the brain to receive all the details from a text, only the main portions. The brain needs to read an entire text to actually receive complete knowledge and encode the information into long-term memory. In conclusion, due to excessive skimming people are less likely to remember what they read. When memorizing facts, there are too many to remember. Thus, the focus is not on trying to understand all the facts but trying to remember them all. When multiple memories come to mind at once, they immediately lock into a fierce competition with each other. Memories then fight to be remembered more than the other. “When these memories are tightly competing for our attention the brain steps in and actually modifies those memories,” says Jarrod Lewis-Peacock, a neuroscientist at UT Austin. Once the brain crowns the winner and loser the memory that wins is then strengthens and the loser is weakened and then eventually forgotten about. Many equate ‘to know’ with ‘to understand’. However, ‘knowing’ something is not the same as ‘understanding’ something. In the allegory of the cave, the prisoners watch the stories that shadows play out, and because the shadows were all they ever got to see, they believed them to be the most real things in the world. But, because they’ve never experienced anything other than the shadows they did not understand that the shadows were just figures of what was really there. Not having an understanding of the outside world caused many difficulties in their society, leading to death. Many also believe that having access to more information produces more knowledge, which will result in more wisdom. In the essay “Wisdom in the Age of Information and the Importance of Storytelling in Making Sense of the World” Maria Popova states, “We believe that having access to more information produces more knowledge, which results in more wisdom. But, if anything, the oppo>GET ANSWER
