29 Jan Developing the Corporate Strategy for Information Security
Imagine that you are working for a startup technology organization that has had overnight success. The organizations immediate growth requires for it to formulate a corporate strategy for information security. You have been recruited to serve as part of a team that will develop this strategy.
As part of the information security strategy development, you are required to identify specific information technology security roles that will optimize and secure the organizations data assets. Rationalize your decision.
Once roles are established, lay out the key the key policy and or procedures, such as a security strategy, plans and or an assessments that you would want to have in place or begin the process of achieving.
Review the following website titled, Information Technology (IT) Security Essential Body of Knowledge (EBK): A Competency and Functional Frame-work for IT Security Workforce Development, located at , for additional information necessary to complete this assignment. This is not to be your only source, nor is it to be necessarily followed, your company choice will determine your needs, not the EBK. I suggest using a small start-up company or business to keep the paper manageable.
Write a paper no less than five pages, though it may take more depending on the scope of your company.
As with the first paper, how you approach the essay is unique to you, there is no template. However, the basic essay format of an introductory paragraph, drafted or revise after the finished draft to reflect the final paper, a solid body laying out in good paragraphs the key points and arguments you need to make, and most importantly, the lessons you want the reader to learn, and any takeaway you may have, is expected.
The conclusion is the reason for most academic and real world papers, and is never just a single block of text, or single paragraph. I expect multiple paragraphs for your lessons and takeaway, along with a closing paragraph. The body and conclusion are mutually supportive.
If you discuss something in the body, then it must relate to or support your lessons and takeaway, if you conclude something in the lessons and takeaway, those must be developed and supported in the body.
