FOR QUESTION 2 REPLY TO THIS ANSWER:
One major security breach was the one that Happened to Marriott Hotels in 2018. The corporation announced that the data of 500 million guests had been compromised. They found that the threats were a combination of remote access Trojan and Mimikat, a tool for sniffing (Fruhlinger, 2019). As explained in Chapter 5 of the textbook, Trojan programs run in the backgrounds of other programs undetected. Marriottâ€™s reasonable guess was that this Trojan was downloaded from phishing emails.
Starwoodâ€™s old system had poor security measures. The brand had laid off information system and security employees to cut costs, and this made them more vulnerable to attacks. Personal information was stored improperly, with credit cards being encrypted, but having encryption keys stored in the same server. Also passport information was stored without encryption.
The corporation has stated that they will enhance their network security.
