Now that you have familiarized yourself with the concepts of hackers and standards, policies, and guidelines, it is important to understand how to match the two in an organization.
For this assignment, prepare a Profile Matrix that lists the different types of hackers in the first column, and for each, list the psychological profile, main motivations, threats to the organization, benefits to the organization, and whether or not a standard, guideline, or policy best applies to them. Be sure to identify an example of a standard, guideline, or policy that may apply.
You should identify a minimum of six hacker-type examples. This will assist you in both helping upper management identify insider threats and to prevent future breaches.
Finally, at this point in your assignment, you should have encountered concerns about using profiles to “watch” employees and the benefits and dangers of doing so. Include a short paragraph about your findings to the matrix.
