For the Security Analysis assignment I analyzed what would be the impact of my labtop being stolen. At first I thought “I just got a new computer so aside from the cost of replacing the labtop itself that wouldn’t be a big deal” but I soon found out I was very wrong. Most of the time I backup my important files right after I finish creating them but sometimes I forget. As a result, a few of the important files I forgot to back up would have been lost for good in the case my labtop was stolen today. Therefore, I need to get better at making sure to backup valuable files as quickly as possible. When it comes to the overall security of my computer it needs to be improved. Right now I don’t even have a password once my computer is turned on, wakes up from sleep , etc… There is also no lock for it in case I so happen to leave it unattended for a period of time. I realized after doing this assignment I am very vulnerable. If my labtop happens to be stolen then the thief will have no problem accessing all of my files and personal information. Due to my lack of judgement I would be in quite some trouble. My plans to prevent any bad from happening will include buying a lock for my computer, creating a password for my computer and to access individua files. On top of that I’m going to backup my information quicker and keep an eye out for where I am vulnerable if my labtop was to be stolen at this moment. The time I put into preventing any possible harm will save me tons of anguish in the event that anything to my computer happens.
