You have been hired as a security consultant for Gray. You need to respond to the following queries in your initial meeting with Gray:
- What are the possible security threats to the online trading portal? Who would be interested in attacking the portal? Why?
- How may these security threats be mitigated? What are a few strategies that can be used to deter or prevent unauthorized use? At this point, these suggestions can be preliminary and non-technical, but they should suggest means of preventing or deterring attack on the system.
