Information Assurance Plan Introduction
To start this project, you have to select an organization and propose (an overview of) your goals and objectives to improve the information assurance plan of that organization. You will also assess the CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability) perspectives of the organization. Your plan would also include the current deficiencies and obstacles of the policies. Now, if you are wondering about the list of organizations, please consider reading this article Top 10 Security Breaches to select an organization.
Special thanks to our fellow students Ms. Contance Leyland (aka C.J.) and Mr. Evan BrathWaite for providing the following topics.
1: Sears Data Breach 2018
2: LabCorp Data Breach 2018
3: Macy’s Data Breach 2018
4: Verizon Data Breach – Investigation Report 2018
5: Panera Bread – Website Hack 2018
Please note that you are not limited to any one of the aforementioned organization issues. These are all some interesting and notable ones to work on, but if you decide to work on some other (but similar) issue, please go ahead.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Introduction a) Provide a brief overview of the goals and objectives of your information assurance plan, including the importance of ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. What are the benefits of creating and maintaining an information assurance plan around those key concepts? b) Assess the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information within the organization. c) Evaluate the current protocols and policies the organization has in place. What deficiencies exist within the organizationâ€™s current information assurance policies? What are the potential barriers to implementation of a new information assurance plan?
