Studies have revealed that many businesses and organizations are not prepared for a cyber-attack.  Analysts refer to cyber as a general cat and mouse game, where once cyber defenses are in place in response to the threat, new threats arise.  Having a strong cybersecurity program is important in mitigating these threats.  This includes having a strong information security program that provides a full spectrum of services that addresses all aspects of cyber defense. 

For this Case, answer the following:

  1. Explain the goals for information security (availability, integrity, confidentiality, accountability, and assurance).
  2. Discuss the categories of services (supporting, prevention, and detection and recovery) needed to achieve these goals.
