Part A:Select an organization you wish to explore and use throughout the course.As you make your selection, keep in mind that you will explore the following roles in the organization: Cyber Security Threat Analyst, Penetration Tester, Cyber Security Engineer, Risk Management Analyst, and Software Engineer. You need sufficient knowledge of the organization you select to complete these security assignments.Part B:A Cyber Security Threat Analyst conducts analysis, digital forensics, and targeting to identify, monitor, assess, and counter cyber-attack threats against information systems, critical infrastructure, and cyber-related interests.Take on the role of a Cyber Security Threat Analyst for the organization you select. Use the Threats, Attacks, and Vulnerability Assessment Template to create a 3- to 4-page assessment document.Research and include the following:REFER TO ADDITIONAL RESOURCES BELOW and to the grading rubric.Provide a scope description of the system you are assessing.Provide a network diagram of the system on which you are conducting a risk assessment.(Microsoft®Visio®or Lucidchart®)Describe at least 12 possible threat agents and how attacks are accomplished with each (attention to attack paths)Describe at least seven exploitable technical and physical vulnerabilities that would enable a successful attack.List at least two security incidents that happened to this organization, or within its industry, against similar systems (same data or business process)Describe the risks associated with at least five threat/vulnerability sets defined in this document.Additional ResourcesThis assignment requires careful attention to each step. In this post, I provide resources to help.Remember that a system is all devices associated with a business process, including servers, routers, switches, firewalls, user devices, applications, etc. For help on creating your network diagram, see the Lucidchart How to Build a Network Diagram or Creating a Network Diagram with Visio.Threat modeling traces attack paths through our infrastructure. This enables us to identify strengths and weaknesses in our controls framework. See A Practical Approach to Threat Modeling.There are many threats and vulnerabilities. For a comprehensive list of possible threats and vulnerabilities, see Catalogue of threats & vulnerabilities. Remember that a threat agent is a specific instance of a threat. For example, a threat of social engineering might be implemented by a malicious actor using a link in a an email message. Social engineering alone would not be detailed enough for this assignment. You must use specific threat agents.It is necessary for this assignment to pair threats and vulnerabilities for the final risk table. Even if you think you understand the differences between threats and vulnerabilities, I suggest you watch the short video, Threats, Vulnerabilities, and Business Impact.When you complete the final risk table, it is important to describe the risk in terms of the threats, vulnerabilities, and business impact as you would to a business manager. After all, that is who will be approving your recommendations. An example of what this might look like is shown in the attachment, below. I adjusted the table columns in the attached version of the template.

Title and reference pages are not necessary for this assignment.The Assessing Arguments Grading Guide will be used to grade your assignment.
Consider the Noble Eightfold Path. First, list and explain each element briefly. More importantly, what do you think? Do you think these are valuable insights into a spiritual life? An article we read earlier this semester asserted that a popular notion among American young adults is that “religion is easy.” This doesn’t sound so easy, does it? We’re familiar with the idea that we must have discipline and work hard to achieve all sorts of worthwhile things (academic success, fitness, learning a musical instrument). Does it make sense that spiritual progress would be the same, that it would require discipline such as that found in the Noble Eightfold Path?answer in a page or two double spaced

Financial Management : Ethics.
Reply in 100 or more to the statement below about ethicsYou are the CFO for a small firm that makes kitchen appliances. Your company discovers a design flaw in one of your most popular models that will likely cause the death of one or two consumers. Your company’s lawyers tell you that you can quietly pay off the families for a very low amount – most of which will be covered by your existing product liability insurance policy. The cost of a product recall and a design fix, however, will be exorbitantly expensive to the point that it will bankrupt your company, force you to lay off every employee (and also put you out of a job). Your local economy is already terribly depressed, with high unemployment and thousands of homes in foreclosure.Do you take the company lawyer’s advice?

The Effect of Physical, Social, and Health Variables on Diabetes Report
The Effect of Physical, Social, and Health Variables on Diabetes Report. Introduction This paper analyzes data of three hundred individuals’ health records. The data summarizes the diabetes status of the sample and presents their medical, social, physical and economic characteristics. Previous public-health studies have investigated and identified the relationship between variables and the prevalence of diabetes. The results will be compared with the findings of previous research on diabetes. Ten variables used to analyze the results were gender, race, salary, education, height, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), allergies, family history of diabetes, and family history of allergies. Subsequent sections analyze the relationships between the variables. Analysis The relationship between each variable and diabetes may be observed by comparing the mean values for the two groups. Table 1 summarizes the mean values of the numerical variables for participants in the two groups. Table 1: Descriptive Statistics of Numerical Variables Diabetes N Mean Age Yes 109 70.47 No 191 38.95 Salary Yes 109 $70,226.45 No 191 $45,522.11 Height Yes 109 70.42 No 191 65.02 Weight Yes 109 187.87 No 191 142.70 BMI Yes 109 26.524 No 191 23.563 Two findings are deducible from the results presented in the table. The average age of those with diabetes was 70.47. However, those without diabetes had an average age of 38.95 years. This finding is supported by a previous study which reported that the decline in protein synthesis in aging tissues increased the risks of diabetes in older people (Yamamoto, et al., 2014). The effect of income on diabetes is observed in the table. The average salary of those with diabetes is $45,522 and for those without diabetes is $70,226.45. These findings can be compared with previous research that suggested low-income earners were more likely to have diabetes than their wealthier counterparts (Lysy, et al., 2013). Although discrepancies can be observed in the mean scores between the two groups, it is important to test the level of significance of these variations. Chi-Square tests and t-tests were used to investigate the significance of the difference in mean values. Table 2 summarizes the results of the Chi-square test. The p-values for salary (0.001), height (0.000), weight (0.000), BMI (0.000), family history of diabetes (0.000), and family history of allergies (0.000) showed the variables were related to diabetes. The results are similar to previous studies, which suggest that income (Lipscombe, AustinThe Effect of Physical, Social, and Health Variables on Diabetes Report
