The Cost of Inadequate Controls

I’m stuck on a Computer Science question and need an explanation.

The Cost of Inadequate Controls

Scenario

Because you performed so well in the scenario for the Access Control Strategy Report assignment, upper management at LOTR Experience has consulted with you again as their IT Security Specialist. This time, they are concerned about a pressing new issue. They inform you about the high costs associated with creating a secure network environment. Unfortunately, they also explain that the IT budget is being cut by 30 percent. A recent request for permission to hire an additional IT member was denied. The proposed additional employee would have been dedicated to the database security controls. Finally, based on the budget constraints, a request for a new NAC router was also denied.

Instructions

  5. Using the Internet, find three qualified vendors that support the need for an NAC router. Provide the companies’ information and the industry knowledge that will support your argument.
