Information Security System Name: Institutional Affiliation: Course: Date: Information Security System Introduction In our modern world today the technological advancements have led to most of the practitioners within the information security recognizing the need of aligning information security needs. For every business or company the objectives happen to be the top priority. The individuals within the organization also play an essential role in ISS. Information Security System also known as INFOSEC denotes to the methodologies and processes involved when one wants to keep specific information as available confidential and assure its integrity. It is also associated to access controls (permissions accessible to the computing system to control entry of unauthorized materials). The two access control types are the physical (one which limits physical IT assets rooms campuses buildings) and Logical (which defines system files computer networks and data). Information is very crucial in that there are risks associated when unauthorized access. There should be sufficient management in the policies to avoid occurrence of fraud. Different systems should use a different password. The users should memorize their passwords and not writing them down to minimize chances of theft. Additionally the information security management should ensure safe information is transmitted by adopting use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and firewalls.

Conduct scholarly research pertaining to access control and then write a paper to: Evaluate the ineffectiveness of passwords if not properly constructed. Identify the dangers that exist as a result of improperly implementing passwords. Justify the move to more secure access technology cards in order to ensure security. Evaluate various methods of encryption and their effectiveness. Recommend access/password policies, encryption algorithms, and general security procedures based on your research. Support your paper with at least five (5) scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
