You Decide Scenario: Week 3
Detecting and preventing insider threats is its own discipline, with its own dynamics. If you put these countermeasures in place, you can reduce the threat dramatically.
First, you can use an IP packet-filtering router. This type of router permits or denies the packet to either enter or leave the network through the interface on the basis of the protocol, IP address, and the port number. The protocol may be TCP, UDP, HTTP, SMTP, or FTP. The IP address under consideration would be both the source and the destination addresses of the nodes. The port numbers would correspond to the well-know port numbers (Vacca, 2009). Packet filtering lets you control data transfer based on the address the data is, the address the data is going to, and the session and application protocols being used to transfer data. The main advantage of packet filtering is leverage. It allows you to provide, in a single place, particular protections for an entire network. Consider the Telnet service. If you disallow Telnet by turning off the Telnet server on all your hosts, you still have to worry about someone in your organization installing a new machine (or reinstalling an old one) with the Telnet server turned on. On the other hand if Telnet is not allowed by your filtering router, such a new machine would be protected right from the start, regardless of whether or not its Telnet server was actually running.
Another advantage of a packet filtering router is that users won’t even realize it’s there, unless they try to do something that is prohibited by the packet filtering router’s filtering policy ("Building Internet Firewalls," n.d.).
Secondly, you can use port blocking which is the prevention of a given communication on a specific port before it reaches your computer. Port 25 is the SMTP port used by mail servers to send mail. The popular trend…...

...Week 3 You Decide 1. You are the judge in the case. Does Susie have a case against Ruthless? Is Ruthless the proximate cause of Susie’s injuries? I certainly do think that Susie has a case against Ruthless because of the simple fact that Susie told Ruthless that she wanted to wait for Orson or she could walk home since she only lived six blocks from the park, but Ruthless paid no attention to Susie, he did not acknowledge what she said and gave her no choice but ordered everyone to get into the truck. Officer Ruthless could have stayed with Susie for a few minutes to see if Orson would come and pick her up, if not, then Officer Ruthless could have easily driven Susie home to ensure that she arrived safely at her home. If Officer Ruthless had other duties that he had to tend to, he could have easily called Susie’s parents to come and pick her up or called his supervisor to tell him that he was running behind because he needed to take a minor home, I’m sure that his supervisor would have understood and all of Susie’s injuries could have been prevented. I believe that Ruthless was the proximate cause of Susie’s injuries because he was the one who ordered her to get into a vehicle that she was refusing to get into from the beginning. Susie has every right to file a complaint against Officer Ruthless, the Elsewhere Police Department because Officer Ruthless is their employee and also Jerry for being careless in driving the truck. Even though a police officer is not obligated...

...Week 5: The Award Phase - You Decide Page 1 of 4 Week 5: The Award Phase - You Decide Print This Page Scenario Scenario Summary You are Chris and Pat Smith, entrepreneurs with five years of experience investing in small businesses. Eighteen months ago you decided to invest in a catering venture with two chefs, J. P. Martin and L. L. Miller, who have culinary science degrees and five years of work experience, which includes winning a prestigious prize in a gourmet food competition. Following some extended discussions, the four of you decided to set up a business catering to parties and weddings under the name of At Your Service. The arrangement between you was quite informal. Essentially you put up $25,000 and the chefs put up $10,000 in capital to get the operation started. You were to manage the advertising, and the bookkeeping. The chefs' contribution was to set up the kitchen and menus, cook, hire staff, and be on site to supervise all catering jobs. The agreement between you was that the profits would be split 50-50 after clearing fixed expenses. Although the first few months were difficult and At Your Service had to use some of the investment reserves to cover monthly expenses, a good newspaper review produced a spurt of business in the third month when the company not only covered fixed costs, but distributed a profit of $250 to each owner. Throughout the first year, you continued to make a little money, or lose a little every month, but the company has been...

Consumer Behavior You Decide Week 3

...You Decide Assignment: Week 3 Board Member Concerns I understand the concerns of ensuring that the opinions and attitudes of the target market are accurate, and this information is essential to the success of the non-profit organization. I recommend we use interviews and surveys to obtain the attitudes of the students in regards to drinking and driving. A great tool to use for surveys is Since we know our target market is well connected using social media, we will be able to promote the survey online via social media websites and by posting some flyers around campus encouraging students to take the free survey. Interviews can be conducted on campus with approval from the university. It would be no trouble at all to request permission to attend a few psychology classes and interview a couple of students about their opinions on drinking and driving to be sure that the information collected is correct. During the interviews, cards can be passed out with the survey website information. Social Media Specialist Concerns In order to obtain credibility and establish some reference groups within the college campuses, we should begin by targeting the fraternities and sororities that belong to the universities. These established reference groups will ensure an accurate collection of information from some easily identifiable groups. Students connected with these groups are supposed to be role models for the colleges and the communities that......

Be sure to view the grading rubric at the bottom prior to proceeding to the activity. Your completed paper will be submitted to the Drop Box. Scenario Scenario Summary You are the new Vice President of Marketing for Graves Enterprises, makers of consumer and commercial grade floor care products. You have two marketing directors that report to you, each of who is in charge of either the consumer market or the commercial market. Graves Floor Care Products are currently priced comparable to their direct competitors in both markets. They are also distributed through the same distribution channels, although there is no real incentive for the distributors or retailers to carry Graves Floor Care's products over those offered by the competition. The sizes and packaging of Graves products and those of the competition are similar, yet there are distinct competitive differences that are not effectively promoted. Some differences include a unique, proprietary chemical cleaner that cleans "dry" (and does not clean "wet"), which helps to reduce mold. In addition, the Graves products reduce mold. Graves products utilize environmentally friendly chemistry, contain “Scotchgard” for continued stain protection. In......

...You Decide Estrella Fernandez PROJ-598-16361 Professor: David Garrett Introduction I am currently the project manager for ZAP Pharmaceutical Company. Currently, I am managing a large IT project in the healthcare industry for ZAP. My project objectives are to refurbish an existing office building, install the IT infrastructure, and outfit the area for use as a new telephone answering hub for the company. All contracts associated with this project are fixed price contracts and we have three main issues that need resolution. Issues 1. Bear’s Construction Company is making a claim that it is not responsible for inspections required by the local township. Bear has produced a memo signed by John during negotiations that states that ZAP is responsible for all permits and inspections. The contract shows that Bear is responsible for all inspections. 2. The contract states that carpeting must meet a specific wear rating. It also prohibits the use of any non generic materials within the work of the contract. This would include carpets with special wear rating, because these would be non generic materials. Anne has already purchased and begun the installation of the generic carpet that does not meet the wear rating. 3. Sheba’s Office Equipment has informed you of a minor typographic error in the contract with you to provide office equipment for this project.

...Hofatma Hospital July 19, 2014 YOU DECIDE Memorandum for Record: The purpose of this memorandum is to inform you that the recipient of the heart transplant has been chosen. I will describe to you the process of this decision and evaluation and how the decision was made. Although the time in which to make such a drastic and life changing decision was brief, the decision was made with moral, professional and ethical choices. There were three qualifying candidates who were in need of the transplant: The first is a 55 year old male named Jerry, who is a husband and father of 3 children, aged 14, 16, and 19, a Middle Level Manager at a carpet distributing business and 5 years short of his retirement. His heart is damaged due to the use of steroids in his early 20’s when he was involved with bodybuilding before the dangers of steroid use were fully known. If Jerry gets the heart, his chances of living another 10-15 years are very high. The second is a 12 year old girl named Lisa. She is the only child in the family, and they cannot bear more children. She reads voraciously and yet likes playing with her Barbie Dolls. Lisa has suffered health issues all her life due to various viral infections and a lupus-like immune deficiency. Her heart was damaged during a nasty bout with pneumonia last year and actually stopped for a brief period. Even with a transplant, her chances of surviving into her 20’s are not good.......

...YOU DECIDE LLOYD BARTSHE NETW 208 Scenario Summary Over the past several weeks, you have carefully considered the devices and media that will be used to communicate between the Pittsburgh and Cleveland offices. You must now move your attention to moving data between the two networks. Kim has recently bought a networking book and began reading up on Frame Relay, but was confused by all of the new terminology. Perhaps with your networking knowledge, you can help Kim in this area. First I think Kim has some serious control issues that at some point should be addressed. The writers of this scenario mustn’t realize that at the understanding that a non-tech person is beginning to read a tech book to help make important tech decisions is equal to an NFL team whose looking for a new coach and gets a resume from someone whose accomplishments only include how many Madden championships he’s won. While on the surface it looks similar, but in reality it’s just scary. I would first explain to Kim that Frame Relay is a WAN implementation methodology which uses virtual circuits to insure an end to end data transmission rate at a guaranteed level of service with additional bandwidth made available if it is not being utilized, but that is not guaranteed. So when considering price, you should only consider the guaranteed rate as opposed to the theoretical additional bandwidth as it is not guaranteed and in a major metropolitan area you might not ever see this extra bandwidth.

...You Decide Template Name __ __________ Date__3/4/10____ Scenario Summary: Your Role/Assignment: Your role is to decide if Karen is an independent contractor or an employee and discuss some of the preventative and ethical situations that are occurring in this case.  Questions: 1. Do you feel that Karen is an independent contractor or an employee? What is your rationale for this decision? I feel that Karen is an employee. The reason for this first of all is that she has been there for five years and the company has changed her title from Human resources temporary to Human Resources Consultant. Karen is also doing similar work to others she works with and that is why they changed her title. Overall, Karen has been consistently requested to work on multiple jobs for the utility and should be considered an employee after five years. 2. What factors do you feel help contribute to Karen being an employee?  I think that the fact they utility changed her title from Human Resources Temporary to Human Resources Consultant is the main contributing factor to her being an employee. The other would be how the company has consistently for five years keep hiring her for project after project. 3. What factors favor her being a contractor?  The fact that Karen never received a W-2 form would be one factor. The other would be that she does have a contract with the utility. Karen also contracts her services to others other than the utility which would......

...ACCT224 Week 3 Assignment Please complete the below problems and submit your answers in the Week 3 Drop Box. See "Syllabus/Due Dates for Assignments & Exams" for due date information. 1. Compare and contrast being an employee and an independent contractor. Which one would you rather have as a business owner? Which one would you rather be as a worker? Why? The threshold difference between an employee and an independent contractor is that an employee is hired to provide services on a regular basis in exchange for compensation and is subject to the control of the employer in terms of working hours, location, and provision of tools to perform the job. Conversely, an independent contractor is a worker who contracts to provide specific services to a company according to contractual conditions but is not subject to the same level of control as an employee of that company.  As a business owner I would rather have employees. I would rather have someone working for me with a set schedule and set with the rules I enforce. I believe it would be much easier to run a business with employees over independent contractors. Most independent contractors are used for one specific trade. I would want to have versatile employees with a multitude of knowledge on things needing done. As a worker I would rather be an employee. I would want to be on a job with a set schedule and set pay. As an independent contractor a lot of the times you have to bid on jobs and only get so much......

Mr. Joe is a customer for Bistro restaurant and he loves the food because it is good. His mother sung “Happy Birthday” every year to him, and he also sings the song to his children. Mr. Bandleader has made profit for over 20 years using his own version to the Happy Birthday song, while Mr. Singstealer has made no profits. Issues at Rise: • Is singing a “Happy Birthday” song in public restaurant violate a copyrights? • Bobby’s own version of the classic “Happy Birthday to You” uses the same tune, but somewhat different wording than does the original song. • Should Bobby Bandleader be entitled to paying Mr. Singstealer a 1 million payout due to abusing copyright laws against “Happy Birthday to You song?” Legal Concepts: It states in accordance with title 17 of the United States Code 101, “Musical works, including any accompanying words are protected within the copyright law”. The law goes on saying “The copyright in a compilation or derivative work extends only to the material contributed by the author of such work”. With these two basic rules in mind in order to come to a resolution I would have to compare both Mr. Bandleader and Mr. Singstealer’s versions of the song to determine how much material within the infringing song was contributed by the copyrighted material.
