1. On your local computer,createanew document.
You will use this document as your Lab Report.
2. Reviewthe seven domains of a typical IT infrastructure.
3. In your Lab Report file,describehow risk can impact each of the seven domains of a typical IT infrastructure: User, Workstation, Local Area Network (LAN), Local Area Network-to-Wide Area Network (LAN-to-WAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), Remote Access, and System/Application domains.
4. Reviewthe left-hand column of the following table of risks, threats, and vulnerabilities that were found in a health care IT infrastructure servicing patient with life-threatening conditions:
5. In your Lab Report file,completethe table from the previous step by identifying which of the seven domains of a typical IT infrastructure will be most impacted by each item in the table’s left-hand column andexplainwhy.

Risks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities

Primary Domain Impacted

Unauthorized access from public Internet

Hacker penetrates IT infrastructure and gains access to your internal network

Communication circuit outages

Workstation operating system (OS) has a known software vulnerability

Denial of service attack on organization’s e-mail server

Remote communications from home office

Workstation browser has software vulnerability

Weak ingress/egress traffic-filtering degrades performance

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) access points are needed for LAN connectivity within a warehouse

Need to prevent rogue users from unauthorized WLAN access

User destroys data in application, deletes all files, and gains access to internal network

Fire destroys primary data center

Intraoffice employee romance gone bad

Loss of production data server

Unauthorized access to organization-owned workstations

LAN server OS has a known software vulnerability

User downloads an unknown e-mail attachment

Service provider has a major network outage

User inserts CDs and USB hard drives with personal photos, music, and videos on organization-owned computers

Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunneling between the remote computer and ingress/egress router

Note:Some risks will affect multiple IT domains. In fact, in real-world environments, risks and their direct consequences will most likely span across several domains. This is a big reason to implement controls in more than one domain to mitigate those risks. However, for the exercise in step 5 that follows, consider and select only the domain that would be most affected.
Subsequent next steps in the real world include selecting, implementing, and testing controls to minimize or eliminate those risks. Remember that a risk can be responded to in one of four ways: accept it, treat it (minimize it), avoid it, or transfer it (for example, outsource or insurance).

ISACA—45 Years Serving Auditors and Business:
ISACA is a global organization that defines the roles of information systems governance, security, auditing, and assurance professionals worldwide. ISACA standardizes a level of understanding of these areas through two well-known certifications, the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). In recent years, ISACA has expanded its certification offerings to include two other certifications around risk and IT governance.
ISACA was previously an acronym expanding to Information Systems Audit and Control Association, but today is known by the name ISACA alone to better serve its wider audience.
Similarly, COBIT was originally an acronym for Control Objectives for Information and related Technology. Now, ISACA refers to the framework as just COBIT, in part because the concept of “control objectives” ends with COBIT version 4.1. COBIT 5 focuses on business-centric concepts and definitions, distinguishes between governance and management, and includes a product family of “enabler guides” and “practice guides.” The recent release of COBIT version 5, released in 2012, is a complete break from expanded the COBIT framework, but COBIT 2019 will add a new Design guide and implementation strategies that include cloud computing.
