6.0 Security

6.0 Security

6.1 Identify the fundamental principles of security

  • Identify names, purposes and characteristics of hardware and software security for example:

    • Hardware deconstruction / recycling

    • Smart cards / biometrics (e.g. key fobs, cards, chips and scans)

    • Authentication technologies (e.g. user name, password, biometrics, smart cards)

    • Malicious software protection (e.g. viruses, Trojans, worms, spam, spyware, adware, grayware)

    • Software firewalls

    • File system security (e.g. FAT32 and NTFS)

  • Identify names, purposes and characteristics of wireless security for example:

    • Wireless encryption (e.g. WEP.x and WPA.x) and client configuration

    • Access points (e.g. disable DHCP / use static IP, change SSID from default, disable SSID broadcast, MAC filtering, change default username and password, update firmware, firewall)

  • Identify names, purposes and characteristics of data and physical security

    • Data access (basic local security policy)

    • Encryption technologies

    • Backups

    • Data migration

    • Data / remnant removal

    • Password management

    • Locking workstation (e.g. hardware, operating system)

  • Describe importance and process of incidence reporting

  • Recognize and respond appropriately to social engineering situations

6.2 Install, configure, upgrade and optimize security

  • Install, configure, upgrade and optimize hardware, software and data security for example:

    • BIOS

    • Smart cards

    • Authentication technologies

    • Malicious software protection

    • Data access (basic local security policy)

    • Backup procedures and access to backups

    • Data migration

    • Data / remnant removal

6.3 Identify tool, diagnostic procedures and troubleshooting techniques for security

  • Diagnose and troubleshoot hardware, software and data security issues for example:

    • BIOS

    • Smart cards, biometrics

    • Authentication technologies

    • Malicious software

    • File system (e.g. FAT32, NTFS)

    • Data access (e.g. basic local security policy)

    • Backup

    • Data migration

6.4 Perform preventive maintenance for computer security

  • Implement software security preventive maintenance techniques such as installing service packs and patches and training users about malicious software prevention technologies
