This research aims at investigating how cybercrime affect operations of organizations and individuals around community. Moreover, survey aim at attaining the outcome that deals with the developing appropriate model that every individual organization around the global society can use to combat cases of cybercrime and digital crime.
The security model that can be applicable in combating cases of cybercrime around global society
According to different articles, the focus on ideal security model remains to be the primary objectives of developing as well as promoting the correct growth of critical knowledge that can assist in the provision of strategic leadership within operations of various organizations for monitoring the health of cyberspace (Lemos 2016, p. 1). The use of the ideal model can help in enabling the better understanding on different attacks by concentrating on attacks against different networks of organizations and users as it offers the appropriate advice and facts relating to security risk in the use of computers. To ensure success in operations of the organization, the use of ideas presented by security model help in providing secure, safe, along with resilient systems that aid in the provision of higher resilience to different cases of attack pertaining cyber along with digital crimes (Hathaway et al., 2012, p. 843). Therefore, regulatory of various issues that are legal in the international community assist in the process of identifying cracks that occur or remains to be present within the cyber by ensuring people provide necessary activities to help in addressing the issue of security risks in cyber. Furthermore, there are various approaches that can apply to classify as well as characterize different countermeasures utilized in reducing cases of vulnerabilities along with activities that deal with threats to the security of different assets of the organization by use of the internet (Arora et al., 2016, p. 3). Therefore, security model applicable in combating cases of cyber security consist of different ways that aim at minimizing the occurrences of such crimes along with digital offenses within activities of people and individuals around global society. Some of these models of security of combating the case of cyber crimes include;
Training as well as awareness
Access control together with management of configuration
Contingency development as well as incident reaction
The robust security plan for different organizations
Assessment of risk and system dealing with acquisition of services
System and communication protection and data integrity
Training as well as awareness
Every manager of an organization and users of the information system of every organization need to receive adequate training on the use of cyber and internet to avoid exposure of organization’s information to hackers. From different surveys, it is clear that managers and employees of the organization need to be aware of different security risks that associate with their operations that can lead to cyber insecurity cases (Nye 2013, p. 11). Therefore, training and awareness can apply to show various managers along with computer users the ideal laws, regulations, together with policies that correlate to the appropriate security of organization information system. The model that concentrates on comprehensive training along with awareness assist in combating cases of cyber security by ensuring that various personnel within operations of organizations can attain effective training (Stoddart 2016, p. 809). The training is essential as it helps the employees and employers to carry out active duties assigned to them that relates to responsibilities and security.
Access control together with configuration management
The focus on control of access to internet and management configuration remains to be a vital approach to combating cases of cyber security around global community. Ideas of limiting information avail to every authorized computer user help to overcoming different risks that associate with cyber crimes. The investigation shows how processes that function on behalf of these authorized computer users can remain to have full management and control of contents on computers by allowing only authorized information to be accessed by different users (Matwyshyn 2017, p. 11107). The idea continues to be vital in keeping away crucial data for operations of organizations from unauthorized access by foreign people or hackers. Besides, management of configuration of different computers used to control activities of people or organizations help in maintaining as well as establishing firm baseline configuration along with inventories of the information systems of the network through the perspective techniques that deal with the development of systems of computers. Such events are vital as they ensure that information stored in the computer systems remains to be free from any case of cyber crimes (Frank & Moss 2017, p. 962). Therefore, enforcement along with the establishment of security systems configuration for products of information technology products in IT system of an organization assists in overcoming the associated security dangers within cyber together with digital systems.
Contingency planning as well as incident response
The focus on contingency planning aids in establishing, implementing, as well as maintaining appropriate plans utilized for cases that need quick response during the emergency of any crime attack on computing systems. The need to establish backup operations along with post-disaster recovery for the process of the organization and their IT systems help in ensuring that there exists the vital source of data and continuity of services within the emergencies (Herli-Karnell 2016, p. 221). The creation of such systems helps in combating cases of cyber crimes by preventing spreading of information about a company that can, in turn, leads to security dangers for computer users around the global society. The case of incident response is vital to controlling the spread of cyber crimes as it results in the establishment of the operations term to be ancient in handling the capacity of services offered by different organizations (Eichensehr 2017, p. 476). Some of the cases that incident response can help include adequate preparation, analysis of the attack, detection of the crime, and improvement of user response activities to reduce or eliminate cases of cyber attacks. Therefore, this security model on combating cases of cybercrime in the global society remains to be vital as it helps in giving essential data and reports that are vital for operations of different managers in an organization (Warf & Fekete 2016, p. 149). It also helps the human resource in an organization to overcome different security dangers that result due to the exposure of company’s operations to cyber along with digital crimes.
The robust security plan for different organizations
The activity that concentrates on attaining efficient plan to improve the security of company’s operations in digital world remains to be the essential factor that eliminates cases of cybercrime during their activities in the global business community (Stoddart 2016, p. 1091). Therefore, in most matters, the plan for controlling of such risks concentrates on functional areas like access control, information integrity, protection of system and communication channel, and identification together with authentication of computer users before they leak vital information that supports operations of individuals as well as organizations to competitors. There is a need to monitor different processes of management and their procedures to eliminate cyber crimes from happening around the society (Cohen et al., 2016, p. 319). Some of the techniques that an individual can apply to combat cases of cyber crimes in the international community include the process of certification, auditing and accounting for every operation, and assessing security system of every computer in use to support activities of an organization or individual. Therefore, robust plan security program targeting any organization that utilizes information technology have to concentrate on the personal security, assessment of risk, acquisitions of systems and services, along with systems and integrity of data to ensure that cases of cybercrime do not arise during their operations.
Risk assessment and system and services acquisition
The idea that concentrates on periodical assessments of risk on operations of different IT systems helps in ensuring that the systems of organizations are not altered with by hackers or unauthorized internet users. Risk assessment ensures that an organization or an individual focus on providing the best approaches in combating cases of cyber along with digital crimes (Rashid 2012, p. 1). Assessment of risk of services and system remain to be essential as it ensures that organizations allocate adequate resources to help in protecting its IT systems form attacks by hackers and authorized users. Risk assessment and system and services acquisition allows the management of different computers to employ ideal security measures (Kinder 2015, p. 1). These measures ensures that every individual in the operating system uses to protect information, application, along with services of an organization from being retrieved by different people outside operations of the organization.
System and communication protection and data integrity
The use of data integrity systems can help in combating cases of cybercrime by monitoring, controlling, as well as protecting communication of organization at the outer and vital boundaries that comprise of the application of information technology. Besides, the use of data integrity system in combating such dangers is essential since it helps in identifying, reporting, and correcting data and flaws within the IT systems promptly as it offers protection from the occurrence of different malicious codes at various localities within IT operation of an organization (Roeder 2014, p. 39). Establishment of the robust plan for the security of data on online platforms enables the organizations along with the management to monitor every IT system security alerts along with advisories as they can further take necessary action in responding to differently cases of security risks around the globe.
The illustrations show that it is clear that the need to combat cases of cyber crimes in the global society remains to be an essential factor that can help in improving well being of both people and operations of organizations. Cases of cyber crimes need a quick resolution before they affect operations of organizations. Cybercrimes are persisting global evil among activities of various business sectors that transcends international boundaries on the manner that tend to aim at forming organized crime to be the international issue. Therefore, it is also clear that cybercrime poses different security risks to organizations that come in various forms such as cyber terrorism, fraudulent online activities, and increased cases of theft. The focus on combating cases of cybercrime around global community should be the primary focus of most organizations to prevent any form of organized crime through ideas of raising awareness of security risks. The next step of the project on how to combat the case of cybercrime around the global society is to interview different IT experts employed by prominent organizations to understand other ways and techniques that they use to overcome the issue.
