INTRODUCTION
In today's world, the internet has become the basis of every business from running the business to maintaining compliance and data security. Digitalization has reduced the burden on paper and immensely made the work easier. Computers has become a means to everything as it reduces the effort and therefore people can focus more on the business than to other secondary works. The Information Technology services have become pervasive over the years. The internet has an impact on the business environment along with a huge social impact as well. Modern human life has now been su
ounded by the Internet of Things which includes education, business, and health care. These business houses work on their computer systems or under IT devices. Therefore they need to store sensitive data and information in these devices which becomes vulnerable because of such vast connection of devices. The information is at risk as this information if leaked may cause huge losses. Therefore the need for cybersecurity has increased. There has been an immense rise in the number of cybersecurity threats and the data is exposed to various forms of theft or destruction (Buczak, A.L. and Guven, E., 2015). As the number of these attackers is increasing the methods used by them are also becoming sophisticated and efficient.
CASE STUDY 1
DoorDash
GENERAL INFORMATION
DoorDash Inc is an American company that is involved in the food delivery service which was established in the year 2013 by some students from Stanford University. It uses technology to deliver food from restaurants to customers on demand. DoorDash is used in more than 4000 cities serving over 340000 stores across the United States of America and Canada. It ranks 3rd in the industry of third party delivery service in the United States of America. The company is valued at more than US $ 13 billion employing more than 7500 employees.
KEY BUSINESS PROCESS
DoorDash connects the people in several cities and empowers the local businesses including the small restaurants. It has generated huge employment opportunities in the countries and generated a new medium to earn and live. It is a mobile application based company that connects the customers who order food from a particular restaurant. It also started delivering essential food and household items to the doorstep of the customers. The customers used their personal information to get registered on the application and thereby creating their account to be able to use the application.
KEY CYBERSECURITY ISSUES
As the customers used their personal information to create an account in the application, DoorDash used to save the data of the customer in the server. The main issue of cybersecurity was the theft or leakage of the data of the people registered on the application which eventually may lead to a huge chain of consumer fraud including identity theft and other frauds. The leakage of a person's information may be used to rob him of money, scam the user getting access to his email, even the payment method used for making payment in the application can also be leaked. Following are some of the cybersecurity issues in the following case:
· The personal information of the customers was leaked to an unknown source which may be harmful in many ways to the customers.
· Social engineering wherein the important information can be accessed by some third party who does not right to that information willing by the person of whom the information is related.
· Most of the data, in this case, is stored in the cloud database which can be hacked into easily making such data vulnerable.
RISKS ASSOCIATED AND IMPACTS WITH SUCH CYBERSECURITY ISSUES
In the case of DoorDash, the information of more than 4.9 million people was leaked and the company claimed that the people who were registered on or after the 5th of April 2018 were not affected by the same. The biggest risk involved was the accessibility of the personal information to the third party and due to the security
each, information of more than 4.9 million people including the merchants and the delivery drivers were leaked. The company suffered a security
each into its database due to which the data related to both the consumers and the merchants as well as the delivery drivers were leaked. Following data were accessed by the security
each:
· Name of the people
· Email addresses
· Address where the food was being delivered
· Order histories
· Contact number along with passwords
· In some cases, the last four digits of the payment cards were also leaked along with the date of expiry and the CVV numbers.
· The number of driver's licenses was also accessed by the delivery drivers.
ACTIONS REPORTED TO ADDRESS
The company primarily suggested the users to change the password to their account in DoorDash as some of the customers complained that their accounts were being hacked. Although the company believed that the passwords were not compromised but still they recommended the same to the people. The company also improved its level of security by adding more layers of firewall between the third party and the servers where the data were stored. In some cases, the data that was leaked was used to make payments and caused a serious threat to the identities of the people.
OUTCOMES OF SUCH ACTIONS
The data that was leaked led to a huge hue-cry amongst the users of other applications as well as the consumers and the merchant considered that if this can happen in the case of a renowned company like Do
Dash the same can happen to the other applications as well. The company installed new servers and added several layers of new security firewall to protect the data in case of any further
eaches.
PROPOSED ACTIONS
The company also improved the security protocols to get the access to the systems and the servers. The company also appointed third party outside security experts who investigated the parties who were involved in the
each of data. It also cannot be completed calculated the total impact and how the information could be used by the people stealing the data. The company's initial policy related to the password of the...
