Visit https://csrc.nist.gov/publications/detail/sp/800-115/final and review the NIST 800-115 Publication to review the standards for Penetration testing
<
<
Due to an increase of cyber attacks occurring across public and private networks, you’ve identified a glaring need for penetration testing within your organization. Using the identified standard, write a 1-2 page paper detailing your understanding of the penetration testing process (see Table of Contents for main areas) and providing senior leadership with justification, benefits, & costs associated with penetration testing. Additional relevant/reliable sources may be required beyond the text and NIST SP 800-115 document.

Ensure all research uses reputable sources and the assignment assignment his turned in using 12 pt Times New Roman, double-spaced, and APA format with title page, appropriate headers/subheaders, citations, and references included as part of the assignment. Note: Title page and reference page are not included in the 1-2 page count.

Same as the previous discussion in Week 5, select from the two topics below and answer the question in a detailed explanation.
(1) Based on the items below: What do think is most important when you design secure applications and architectures? How can it be implemented in the AWS cloud environment? Why is it important to be included?
Design secure access to AWS resources
Design secure application tiers
Select appropriate data secure options
(2) Based on the items below: What do think is most important when you design cost-optimized architectures? How can it be implemented in the AWS cloud environment? Why is it important to be included?
Identify elastic and scalable compute solutions for a workload
Select high-performing and scalable storage solutions for a workload
Select high-performing networking solutions for a workload
Choose high-performing database solutions for a workload

Technical debt is the concept of incurred costs in software development when a limited or inefficient solution is chosen over a better development approach. As a result, additional time and costs are involved to re-work and improve the software or system. This occurs in organizations for multiple reasons, including the need to rush to market. What type of impacts could this decision have on the organizations developing the software or the consumers using it?
What type of selection methods can be used in these organizations to prevent technical debt from occurring when making these software decisions in the future?

Steganography is the age-old practice of concealing a message within another med

Steganography is the age-old practice of concealing a message within another medium. Unlike cryptography, where it is clear that there is a message or file present, but it is difficult or impossible to interpret it, steganography is the art of ‘hiding in plain sight’. Cryptography conceals the contents of the message; steganography conceals the message’s existence.
Digital steganography is the concealment of information within computer files. These files could be pictures, movies, audio, or any other file that offers the size and space to add a hidden message. There are a variety of techniques to do this and readily available programs on the internet that can assist. The detection of steganography is called steganalysis.
Discuss: Provide one detailed example each of a historic use of steganography and a current use of digital steganography. In these examples, how would steganography be implemented? How could this steganography be detected? Comment on the ethics of using this technology.
Interaction: At the end of your original post, add an interesting question for your classmates to answer.
Instructions:
Read and understand the question and address it fully in all its aspects.
The best answers will cite 3+ supporting sources in APA format and contain a solid rationale and/or additional facts.
Use some sources outside of the textbook and course lectures. The quality of the source matters, so try to use reputable sources.
Critically examine your response for spelling and grammar prior to posting. Avoid responding in first person.
Use the Preview button in the top right to check formatting. (Note: if you are copy-and-pasting from Word or similar, use CTRL+Shift+V to strip formatting, since Blackboard butchers it.)
Please post your original post (as a reply to this post – “Create Thread” button) by Friday, February 3, 11:59 PM. There is a flat 10% penalty for being late.
Please respond to a peer (as a reply to their posts – GRAY button) by Friday, February 10, 11:59 PM. The discussion closes at that point and will not re-open.
Limit the size of your posts to approximately 500-600 words.
Review any previous feedback.
