Unit 3 Assignment 2: Application, Data, and Host Security – ELO 3.1-3.3
You’re a security guard of a jewelry store that just opened. You were asked to patrol the store, make sure everything goes smoothly, and ensure nothing gets stolen. How would you do this? Would you just watch the customers? Would you just check the doors and locks on the outside of the store? Would you only concern yourself with just the merchandise in the store or with everything, including the personnel? What types of security do you think is needed to make sure everyone and everything, including the store, itself is safe?
