Wireless Technologies

As wireless and mobile technologies continue to grow in presence and popularity, the world is becoming more and more connected. Unfortunately, this also means that devices and networks are becoming more and more vulnerable to outside threats. Businesses must identify and mitigate these vulnerabilities and threats in order to protect employees’ personal information and ensure the organization is secure from passive leaking of proprietary information.

In this task you will assume the role of an IT professional who is responsible for identifying wireless and mobile vulnerabilities, as outlined in the scenario below. You will then present your findings and recommend solutions to mitigate these risks and prevent future threats.

SCENARIO
You are a network professional on the IT team at Alliah Company, a new but fast-growing social media provider. One year ago, Alliah launched a social media website aimed at young professionals. The company also released a mobile app for accessing the site from cellular devices. Alliah was able to launch its website with money generated by a crowd-funded campaign, but most of the funds were spent on the site and app development, with relatively little money (and time) devoted to the internal office network infrastructure.

Alliah has 35 full-time employees, all of whom have offices or shared work spaces in a three-story building that serves as the company headquarters. The building is an old warehouse that was converted for office use and is approximately 10,000 square feet. Currently, the employees occupy only two floors; the third floor is vacant and available for expansion.

The Alliah WLAN has a gigabit managed switch, a multiservice wireless LAN controller, and seven wireless access points strategically located to provide coverage to office staff. One access point services a large back patio area for employee use. The network is protected by a firewall. The Alliah website servers are located in a data center 100 miles from Alliah headquarters.

Five employees are account representatives who are on the road at least 80 percent of the time, and each rep has a company-issued laptop, tablet, and smartphone. They use a large, shared office in the headquarters building when they are not traveling.

Employees use company-owned computers that connect to the WLAN, and, in an effort to control costs during the launch, Alliah has a bring your own device (BYOD) policy.

The IT staff consists of five employees; three are devoted to website maintenance, one manages the headquarters’ computers and network, and another employee assists with the website and the office network. IT staff uses wired Ethernet connections to remotely access the website servers.

The Alliah website is successful, attracting more and more visitors each month. Jennifer, the CEO, anticipates hiring more employees and is considering a strategy that would take the company public within a few years. In preparation, she wants to ensure that Alliah’s wireless networking infrastructure is highly secure, especially because it may need to grow quickly in a short period of time, and she wants to understand the security risks the company faces. She also wants to decide if Alliah should continue allowing BYOD or restrict network access to company-owned devices only, or if a compromise solution is available.

REQUIREMENTS
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

A. Describe two WLAN vulnerabilities that present risks for Alliah, based on the details in the scenario.

B. Describe two mobile vulnerabilities that present risks for Alliah, based on the details in the scenario.

C. Summarize the steps for mitigating each identified WLAN and mobile vulnerability, including the specific tools or documentation that will be needed for mitigation.

D. Recommend preventive measures to maintain the security posture of WLAN and mobile environments in a small business, such as Alliah. Reference federal, state, or industry regulations that justify these measures.

E. Recommend a solution for the company’s BYOD approach, including research to justify your recommendation.

Sample Solution

austerity policies on individuals and societies. With this came a drive to discover a potentially new structure of inequality. A number of studies have focused on the gendered impact of recession (McKay et al 2013; Harrison, 2013; Spitzer and Piper, 2014, Treanor 2015; O’Loughlin et al 2015). The greatest impact of public sector cuts is inevitably waged on women: as single parents, public sector workers and greater users of public services (McKay (et al 2013). Harrison’s (2013) qualitative study on the impact of economic decline in the Sussex town of Newhaven critiques the focus by academics and policy professionals on ‘resilience’ with regard to recession, which stimatisatises the vulnerable and obscures structural factors. In interviews, female exercise of ‘resilience’ is seen to levy declining health, assets, and be unsustainable. Treanor’s study (2015) takes a longitudinal view of financial vulnerability (studying 5217 children born in Scotland in 2004–2005) to show young children are adversely affected by their mothers’ emotional distress rather than direct economic effects. O’Loughlin et al’s study (2015) takes a cross-national, cross disciplinary focus, to explore the effects of austerity on European men, which he says is experienced as a ‘rites of passage’ in which male identity can be a coping resource. The study finds commonality across differing demographic and socioeconomic backgrounded individuals in the areas of identity, expectations and aspirations. A gap emerges in the literature in terms of exploration of how recession is comparatively coped with between the genders. A number of researchers have returned to previous studies in view of recession. Atkinson’s study (2013) returns to his 2010–11- intensive qualitative work with 29 families in Bristol. His findings undermine the class-leveling, gendered argument made by O’Loughlin et al’s study. Instead he finds how individuals understanding of recession is determined by a combination of class and occupational resources which render the future as – controllable, uncontrollable, precarious, or reasonably controllable. Leicht and Fitzgerald (2014) expanded their 2007 study of over-55 Americans Post-Industrial Peasants in light of the crash. They find that at a time of increased low income and job security for this group, the ‘work until I die’ ethos rises because of the unaffordability of retirement. In this they see neoliberal/neoconservative thinking has effectively ‘defined old age out of existence’ under the pretence of free market choice.
