Top of Form

Many different threats can arise to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data-at-rest, data-in-transit, and processing. Some threats may affect only 1 of these security risks (like confidentiality only), and other threats affect more than 1 or even all these risks. 

Create a 1- to 2-page table in Microsoft Word identifying a minimum of 6 threats using the column headers and details below:  

  • Threat
  • Threat to Type of Data
  • Confidentiality/Integrity/Availability
  • Mitigation Suggestion

Within your table:

  • Identify relevant threats. List 1 per column.
  • Determine the type of data threatened (data-at-rest, data-in-transit, or processing). Identify the data type in the column.
  • Determine if confidentiality, integrity, or availability was affected. Use the labels C, I, and/or A in the column.
  • Describe the mitigation plan in 2 to 3 sentences in the column. 

Example:

Threat: Password Compromise

Threat to Type of Data: Data-At-Rest

Confidentiality/Integrity/Availability: C & I

Mitigation: Employ a strong password that is changed at regular intervals. Do not share your password or write it down on sticky notes on your desk.

Include a short paragraph that highlights 2 access control techniques or policies that enforce security.
