Scenario: You are the director of safety and security at a major manufacturing plant. The plant has 1,800 workers and runs three shifts a day. The night shift has about 400 workers on it and runs from midnight to 8 a.m. The security supervisor for the night shift reports to you that there are some unusual activities going on during the night shift involving three of the younger male employees. You decide that you will visit the plant during the night shift to observe this behavior for yourself.

The night you arrive, you realize that you know one of the three young men involved, and he has always been a good worker and a very serious person. You note right away that all three men have an extraordinarily high energy level. They are having a hard time settling down at their assembly points on the line. They are whooping and hollering all the time over the noise of the shop. They are aggressive to the point of pushing other employees around physically. You notice extreme cases of acne and body odor on all three men when you walk by them. Their eyes are glassy and dilated.

At their 3:30 a.m. lunch break, they cross the street to an all-night diner. You notice that they sit with a man wearing a motorcycle jacket with local gang colors. They do not eat, but only have coffee. You see them pay cash to the man with the jacket and he hands one of the three men a small package. When the man with the motorcycle jacket leaves, he mounts a motorcycle and rides off. The three men go to the men’s bathroom in the diner. They are in the bathroom for almost 10 minutes. When they come out, they are boisterous, agitated, and overly animated with their movements.

1. You and your other group members have been hired as information security consultants for Heartlanding Consulting.
2. Your group’s first client (BTW: You are very excited!) is “Quick Care” medical. “Quick Care” medical pioneered the drive up checkup – they can check your heart, cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, BMI, all from the comfort of your car in five minutes or less. They have even experimented with performing minor medical procedures from the car. Their slogans say it all – “Having problems with your left arm, we can fix it,” or “Scrapes, bumps, or breaks on your left arm – we’ve got you covered.” However, many patients, of course, still prefer the traditional waiting and examination rooms. 
3. The “Quick Care” medical clinic needs advice regarding security. They recently experienced a break-in, and some perpetrator stole computer equipment containing patient records. Note this happened six months after the office flooded and destroyed some important paper documents. 
4. In the past, computer hard drives have failed, destroying many patient records. The staff feels that they are very lucky to have the paper records so they can reenter the data for the patients in the future. Meanwhile, several examination rooms in the clinic are being used to store the paper-based patient records. 
5. Office staff use simple and easy to remember passwords such as (Love, God, and Secret) and they post their passwords on the office bulletin board, so no one forgets. 
6. One of their servers, located in the patient waiting room, was infected by a computer virus when one patient viewed an inappropriate web site. The staff discovered that the virus protection software was not installed. 
7. The server also supports the clinic’s Internet website, but patients are not required to log in.
