Use the five-step decision-making process discussed in Chapter 1 to analyze the following situations and recommend a course of action.
1. You and your team have been hired to assess the computer security of a small retailer. Where would you begin your assessment? What would you look for?
2. It appears that someone is using your firm’s corporate directory—which includes job titles, email addresses, and phone numbers—to contact senior managers and directors via text message. The text message requests that the recipient click on a URL, which leads to a website that looks as if it were designed by your human resources organization. Once at this phony website, the employees are asked to enter their bank routing number and account number to be used for electronic deposit of their annual bonus check. You are a member of the IT security group for the firm. What can you do?
