U23 – web security & regulations

  1. 1. Health Warning Please remember that the Exam Board doesn’t provide Mas for anything beyond U4, so this is my best interpretation of the markgrids and other paperwork… Note: this one is HEAVY on research – and the answers aren’t that easy to locate! You gotta have heart!
  2. 2. Health Warning – Extra! People tend to pick this Unit because they think it is short – only has 4 AOs, right? Gotta be easy… Oh, in your dreams…. This is a heavy-on-the-research Unit: and for me to pass it, you’ll need up-to- date info, spot on examples, and a real understanding of the issues.
  3. 3. Scenario A prominent PC- techie type magazine is doing a series of articles on the state of the World Wide Web, more than a decade after TBL suggested it to CERN. Among concerns in modern days has been cyber-terrorism in all its forms, hacking for all sorts of reasons, and general security issues. That’s where YOU come in.
  4. 4. Task 1: What Are We TalkingAbout? As always, AO1 is research. Here you need to research and describe, with examples:  3 security breaches  2 examples of fraudulent use of e- communications  1 hazard through site overload ○ And a partridge in a pear tree…. OOPS! Sorry –  2 examples of hardware OR software contamination through e-communications  Oh – and explain the vulnerability of WLANS too
  5. 5. Task 1: What Are We TalkingAbout? So that’s pretty much anything I tweet about! (@Angelsoft_ICT remember!) Those fools not brave enough to tie their names to anything, calling themselves Anonymous could be included here. Also phishing, DDOS, flaming, hardware violations, spamming, software infections, theft of credit card details This isn’t about LOSS: it’s THEFT you’re looking for…
  6. 6. Markgrid – AO1 PASS  Candidates research and provide a basic description, supported with few examples, of: ○ three security breaches, ○ two examples of fraudulent use of e- communications, ○ one hazard through site overload ○ two examples of hardware or software being contaminated or ruined through e- communications.  They describe, in basic terms, the vulnerability of WLANs (wireless local area networks).
  7. 7. Markgrid – AO1 MERIT  Candidates research and provide a detailed description, supported with appropriate examples, of: ○ three security breaches, ○ two examples of fraudulent use of e- communications, ○ two hazards through site overload ○ two examples of hardware or software being contaminated or ruined through e- communications. They clearly describe the vulnerability of WLANs.
  8. 8. Markgrid – AO1 DISTINCTION ○ Candidates research and provide a comprehensive description, supported with a variety of well chosen examples, of: ○ three security breaches, ○ two examples of fraudulent use of e-communications, ○ two hazards through site overload and ○ two examples of hardware or software being contaminated or ruined through e-communications.  They evaluate the vulnerability of WLANs. NB – by now you’re being far more technical about WLAN construction and security!
  9. 9. Task 2- Protection So now we’re all scared witless – this is when you start to show how we can protect ourselves from most threats. There is really nothing ‘civilised’ that can deter a serious thief: they have nothing to lose. But most thieves aren’t that inhuman – most can be persuaded otherwise…
  10. 10. Task 2- Protection So show an understanding of valid measures (number depends on level – so check the grid) covering hardware AND software that a WEBSITE CONTROLLER could use. NOT a private citizen!!! Also show understanding (depth in levels again) of two ways to control access to a website
  11. 11. Task 2- Protection So that could be…  Firewalls, anti-virus software, encryption (PGP and digital sigs included here) anonymisers, remailers  Quarantine machines in the network  Passwords, machine id logs, activity monitoring, backup and restore procedures  User registration, password access, account access levels…
  12. 12. Markgrid – AO2 PASS  Candidates demonstrate a basic understanding, supported with few examples, of four valid measures, covering hardware and software that a website controller could use.  They demonstrate a basic understanding of two ways of controlling access to a website.
  13. 13. Markgrid – AO2 MERIT  Candidates demonstrate understanding, supported with appropriate examples, of the effectiveness of six valid measures, covering hardware, software and procedures that a website controller could use.  They demonstrate understanding of two ways of controlling access to a website.
  14. 14. Markgrid – AO2 DISTINCTION  Candidates demonstrate understanding, supported with a variety of well chosen examples, of the effectiveness of eight valid measures, covering hardware, software and procedures that a website controller could use.  They demonstrate understanding of the effectiveness of two ways of controlling access to a website.
  15. 15. Task Three: Repairing thedamage One way or another, we all get caught by something. So how to repair the damage?  Backups? (cloud or local? – issues arising?)  Manual repair?  File recovery?  Repair Programs?
  16. 16. Markgrid – AO3 PASS  Candidates describe generic methods of repair. ○ Short but sweet. Even here, though, you need a bit more than ‘try ctrl-Z’: OK?
  17. 17. Markgrid – AO3 MERIT  Candidates describe generic methods of repair, using appropriate examples to support their descriptions.
  18. 18. Markgrid – AO3 DISTINCTION  Candidates describe in detail methods of repair, using a variety of well chosen examples to support their descriptions.
  19. 19. Task 4: The Stinker Yup – this is where you may well regret taking this Unit. Just remember: I did warn you… In this AO you are looking at how website legislation has been applied by business. For the higher grades you’ll also be looking at the impact through evaluation of this action.
  20. 20. Task 4: The Stinker So you’re looking at things like things like this AS A MINIMUM:  PASS ○ Privacy Directive, Copyright and Intellectual Property laws  MERIT ○ Pass stuff, plus e-Commerce regulations  DISTINCTION ○ All of that plus accessibility requirements
  21. 21. Markgrid – AO4 PASS  Candidates will briefly describe how website legislation has been applied by businesses.  Their report is supported by few examples and based on limited research.  Website legislation covered will include, as a minimum, Privacy Directive and Copyright and Intellectual Property laws.
  22. 22. Markgrid – AO4 MERIT  Candidates will describe in detail how website legislation has been applied by businesses.  Their report is supported by a range of examples and based on research.  Website legislation covered will include, as a minimum, eCommerce regulations, Privacy Directive, Copyright and Intellectual Property laws. 
  23. 23. Markgrid – AO4 DISTINCTION  Candidates will provide a comprehensive evaluation of how website legislation has been applied by businesses.  Their report is, supported by a wide range of examples and based on extensive research.  Website legislation covered will include, as a minimum, accessibility requirements, eCommerce regulations, Privacy Directive, Copyright and Intellectual Property laws. 
