1.Often budgets are a major concern for many organizations with the constant changes and ongoing advances in cybersecurity. Research compensating controls and provide a solution for the scenario:

You head up a small team of IT and cyber professionals tasked with ensuring network security. A recent malware has come to light that involves exploiting several ports and protocols, specifically port 22, port 25, port 53 TCP, port 80, and port 8080. Identify each of the ports and protocols associated. What compensating controls could be utilized to ensure security?

2. Investigate the advantages and disadvantages of hardware, software, and cloud firewalls. If you were asked to make a firewall recommendation for a business, what information would you need to know about the business to provide the best solution?
