Learning Objectives and Outcomes
You will learn to develop procedures to ensure a malware-free environment.
Ken 7 Windows Limited new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software makes it possible for more employees, vendors, and customers to access Ken 7 Windows environment. You have noticed a marked increase in malware activity in the test environment that seem to originate from external users. After researching the likely source of new malware, you conclude that allowing external users to connect to your environment using compromised computers exposes Ken 7 Windows to malware vulnerabilities. You take your findings to your manager and have been asked to create a policy that will ensure all external computers that connect to Ken 7 environment are malware free. You create the following policy:
“To protect the Ken 7 computing environment from the introduction of malware of any type from external sources, all external computers and devices must demonstrate that they are malware free prior to establishing a connection to any Ken 7 Windows resource.”
Answer the following questions:
What does “malware free” mean?
Malware free means that a program or file(s) won't contain any form of program that will harm your computer
How can a user demonstrate that their computer or device is malware free?
I do not think there is a way besides installing or running malware removers and trackers but even with that I do not think is completely demonstrable that it does not Malware or spyware.
What are the steps necessary to establish a malware-free computer or device?
Malware incidents must be treated as elements of a security cycle. The cycle consists of four steps: 1Plan, 2Resist, 3Detect, and 4Respond.
How should Ken 7 Windows verify that a client computer or device is compliant? He would have to run spyware detecting software and make sure to keep on track with checking the software because if he is not careful he can get malware and spyware that it is so subtle that he will not notice.
