Case Study #2: Data Security & Data Loss Prevention
Scenario
Congratulations on successfully completing your first briefing paper for Padgett-Beale! The
management interns did so well that the Training Team has asked for your assistance in developing a
second training module. The topic for this training module will be “Data Security and Data Loss
Prevention for Travelers.”
This training topic was selected after two Padgett-Beale employees had sensitive corporate
information and login credentials stolen from their mobile devices while they were traveling. One
employee was traveling inside the United States. The other employee was out of the office for two
weeks on a multi-country trip. In one case, it appears that the attackers gained access to both a
company cellphone and a company-owned laptop. In the other, it appears that the active attack
affected an employee’s personal laptop while she was using hotel provided Wi-Fi. This employee was
using her personal laptop because her company laptop was in checked baggage (due to FAA and TSA
restrictions) and was stolen while in the airline’s baggage handling system.
Fortunately, neither person had stored or accessed customer information from these devices.
Both thefts were caught after attackers tried to exploit the stolen login credentials and could not get
past the two-factor authentication requirement (security code generated an authenticator application
on the employee’s corporate cell phone). During the after action reviews for these incidents, a training
gap and a technology gap were identified. A policy gap, with respect to enforcing least privilege and
separation of duties was also identified as a potential area of risk (too much access to sensitive data
while traveling could exacerbate the risks of data loss).
Your deliverable for this assignment will be a briefing paper that identifies and discusses five or
more major issues that employees need to be aware of about this topic (Data Security and Data Loss
Prevention for Travelers). After you identify and describe each security or privacy issue, include two to
three additional points that employees should know. Try to keep a neutral tone, that is, you should
focus on solutions not blame. You should also address the importance of protecting both personal and
company owned devices and data while traveling. After you address the issues, identify and discuss at
least 5 recommended solutions (include at least one technology solution and one policy solution). See
the instructions below for additional information about length, formatting, and citing of sources.
