Wan connections between the Atlanta main office and Atlanta East can be unreliable. There are DHCP servers in Atlanta and the branch offices. All servers are Pentium III 550MHz or greater processors with at least 512 MB of memory. All of the offices run various client operating systems, which include Windows 98, Windows NT
Workstation 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, and UNIX. The instructors run either Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional on their desktop computers at the office. UNIX instructors use a UNIX client computer to access the network when working from home.
The following business problems must be considered:
The company recognizes that its biggest security vulnerability is the methodology that it uses to update the student records database in Atlanta. In the past, there have been problems with students gaining access to and altering their student records.
There has been reason to suspect that courseware has been compromised because of weak passwords on instructors’ computers.
Chief Executive Officer I am pleased with the performance of our staff at A. Datum Corporation. However, I am concerned about protecting our intellectual property. Both our online curriculum and the student records database need protection. Our primary focus must be that no one outside of the organization can view or modify this information.
Chief Information Officer We need to provide an adequate security structure for our network environment.
It is important that wecreate a centralized network operations team. I am confident in the ability of our IT staff in Atlanta to take a lead administrative role in our envisioned environment.
The practice of sending student information through email must stop. I think our strategy of a single, centralized student records database is valid. We need to make this database directoryaware so that users who have the responsibility for updating the student records will need only a single set of credentials to make the necessary changes.
Additionally, instructors are not receiving updated teaching schedule information on a timely basis. The issue should be addressed by ensuring that our new scheduling program is installed on all instructor computers, including the computers that the instructors use when accessing our network remotely. Registrar, Atlanta Office
I am concerned about the network changes. The good news is that they will tell me that I will need only one logon name. However, the other news I am hearing is not good. I am told that the password I use cannot be a word. How am I going to remember a password that is not a word? I have a hard time remembering passwords as it is.
My other major concern is that I am being told that the instructors in each location will be able to enter grades. Recording grades should be my job exclusively.
