It is a process in doing the application of various security measures in order to ensure integrity, confidentiality as well as availability of data.

In this particular assignment, the enterprise from business sector is selected named Credit Union Bank. It also discusses about the development of security preparedness plan that includes development of policies and procedures, disaster recovery and the preparedness of the contingency plan.

Executive Scope Statement:

Lundkvist, Meiling and Sandberg argued that cyber security is one of the potential method of information technology security that allows in protecting the networks, computer, programs that running. Apart from that, implementation of cyber security will also allow to protect from unauthorized access and destruction that unintended. Therefore, implementation of Cyber Security in the banking system of Credit Union Bank will be very much effective to protect their information such as transactions, file sharing over networks, etc. As days passed, technology changes rapidly and the threats in internet become higher and higher throughout the world. Cyber crime is one of the potential threats for the bankers as well as for the other users. In terms of protecting the cyber threats as well as increased criminal activities, implementation of Cyber Security system will be effective (Torres et al.). Therefore, the scope of this project is to lead the attention in sharing business information from one to other in banking sector especially for the Credit Union Bank. Moreover, Cyber Security System is also known as the safeguard national security that mostly developed by the nations in terms of protecting the digital spying and attacks. Therefore, implementation of Cyber Crime Security has huge scope in protecting data for the Credit Union Bank. On the contrary, Alberts, cited that the business interests and national security of any country in the world depends on the cyber security in these modern days (Throndson et al.). Development or implementation of cyber security professionals in the business system of Credit Union Bank will be better to correlate the organizational daily security operations and broad security guidelines. Se iof security topologies will be effective and efficient in improving security system if Credit Union Bank. It not only helps in preventing the cyber breach of the organization but also helps in protecting the information from cyber threats or attackers. Through the use of data loss prevention tools, Credit Union Bank will be able to protect their business information. This project will bring broad scope for Credit Union Bank because majority of organization especially the organization in banking sector faces challenges in protecting their information from the attackers (Eskerod and Jepsen). According to the 2008 market review, it has been analysed that in the banking sector of United State, organizations were face loss of more than $8.10 billion in a year. It highlighted the importance of Cyber Security System in the banking sector. Therefore, the undertaken project of Cyber Security System implementation for their online transferring system and data protection will be the best methodology.

 

Overview of the organization:

Credit Union Bank started their journey at 22nd March 2012 with a small number of accounts holder in California. Through providing better service, satisfying the customers, the company is increasing the customer base, and developing a brand name within the banking sector in United States. Credit Union Bank provides the variety of banking services such as personal banking, corporate banking, agricultural finance, financial trade, international banking, industrial finance, etc (Lock). The key stakeholders of the Credit Union Bank in United Sates are the small sized organization as well as industrial units.

Moreover, the selected organization also has the customers of non-residential of California, multinational companies as well as exporters. After starting the business in financial banking sector, Credit Union Bank humbly started their business and has grown in their structure. The organization generates 3% revenue of overall financial activities within California. Apart from that, customers are also happy with the service that provided by the organization. The mission of the company is to generate more revenue and retain the customers through providing higher service.

According to the management of the organization, Credit Union Bank firmly focuses on establishing their business successfully and becoming the leading banker in the banking sector of California.

Moreover, messaging facility for both credit and debit of the customer’s account allows in maintaining security for every transaction (Torres et al.). For the net banking purpose, Credit Union Bank uses latest technology such as One Time Password Methodology. The manager of the Credit Union Bank said that the company has taken major initiative in computerization in their overall process. Credit union Bank has more than 12 branches in all part of the California. Entire branches of the organization have been computerized (Throndson et al.). Credit union Bank provides all time banking with a impressive tagline Any Time, Any Where Banking to their customers.

Through the implementation of centralized banking solution, Credit Union Bank introduced the latest technology and quick fund transfer for their customers. The organization generates large amount of customer related report and documents. Credit Union Bank introduced the FineDoc system for their Document Management System that assists them in creating a detail information database for the new customers (Yang). This electronics document form stored entire information of the new customers to provide the effective customer service and also avoiding the legal disputes.

The main problems that faced by the Credit Union over the year is cyber crime. The company faced $75.3 million in the year of 2014 via cyber crime. As the entire system of Credit Union Bank is computerized, it was unable to manage the entire security system by the IT staffs. Moreover, the company also faced challenges in file sharing and documents sharing over their branches (Rose).

Therefore, this project plan is developing for the implementation or integration of Cyber Security System including RSS algorithm over their computerized banking system. RSS algorithm will allow the selected organization in transmitting information with each branch in a safe way. The string encryption methodology of RSS algorithm will be effective for Credit Union Bank and maintain the security system.
