project business security plan

The major project will be the creation of a business security plan. This project may be done as a group project (max of 2 people). The project will include at least 30 pages of content paper and final presentation. The student will take a company and create a sample security plan which will include recommendations on policies and practices, business continuity, incident response plan, an ethical hacking exercise and appropriate training based on industry standards.

It is a business proposal. Think of me as a customer. It has to be written to show that the team are experts, otherwise, I would not hire you. In business, I want you to demonstrate that you could be a good partner. I want to have you include what the customer should o to prepare. You want to help the customer spend his money, time and resources wisely. This project and the final are the main determinants of the course grade.

  • Policies – samples or areas that they should include
  • Procedures – what are best of breed
  • What standards do you suggest following
  • Testing – Penetration testing – both internal and external. What tests, what do you expect to find, how would you fix it
  • Incident Response Plan
  • Training – what training would you offer to employees (needs details and action plans)
  • Expectations – What would you suggest for the customer to do to prepare for the evaluation

The early assignments can be integrated into the document. For example the 4 page sample incident response plan can be put in as part of the plan submittal. 30 pages sound like a lot but look at the number of items that you are covering. Many are 50 pages.

I’m going to do the first 4 topics and the total pages should be 15 pages :

  • Policies – samples or areas that they should include
  • Procedures – what are best of breed
  • What standards do you suggest following
  • Testing – Penetration testing – both internal and external. What tests, what do you expect to find, how would you fix i

and the rest my classmate will do it
