CMGT 430 - Week 1 Individual IT Systems Connection Table
Enterprise systems consist of multiple IT systems. It is important to know the different interconnections each system may have. IT systems do not operate alone in the modern enterprise, so securing them will involve securing their interfaces with other systems, as well as the system itself.
Complete the University of Phoenix Material: IT System Connection Table for four different IT systems. The table is located in the Materials section to the right.
Complete the directions within the document. They are as follows:
§ Note two systems they connect with and their connection type.
§ Note two security vulnerabilities the system may have and two to four ways each vulnerability could be potentially exploited.

IT System Connection Table
When securing the modern enterprise, consider that IT systems do not operate alone. Securing them involves securing their interfaces with other systems as well. It is important to know the different interconnections each system may have.
Fill out the following table for four different IT systems.
§ Note two enterprise systems they connect with and their connection type.
§ Note two security vulnerabilities the connection may have and two to four ways each vulnerability could be potentially
§ An example row has been entered into the table in blue. This is only an example and should not limit what you do.
§ Keep in mind that enterprise systems cover a certain task in the enterprise (HR, CRM, Identity Management, etc.). They are not the components of a system (such as servers).
§ Connections can often be a direct connection/pipe, a file, a common database, or something else.
§ The vulnerability is what would make the connection vulnerable to an attack.
§ The related risk is an attack that could target the weakness.
