Describe why the loss of your selected security objective (confidentiality, integrity, or availability) reflects the greatest overall negative impact on the organization
Scenario is attached on a PDF
This project is the creation of an incident analysis brief for your manager. Regardless of the level of protection and prevention an organization has in place,
cybersecurity incidents occur. It is the response to the incident that may make or break an organization. As you progress through your degree, you will build your
skills to prepare for all stages of incident response: preparation, detection and analysis, containment, eradication and recovery, and post-incident activity.
A critical aspect of incident response is the ability to use information gained from an incident to improve the organization’s security posture. The insight gained
helps security professionals develop solutions that reduce the likelihood of similar incidents in the future while balancing the potential negative impacts those
solutions will have on the people, processes, and technologies they ultimately affect. In this project, you will examine an incident that has occurred and use the
Fundamental Security Design Principles to develop recommendations that will protect the organization in the future.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course competency:
CYB-200-03: Describe fundamental principles of cybersecurity
In a course announcement, your instructor will provide you with a scenario on which your work will be based. You will situate yourself as the security analyst in
one of the provided scenarios, creating an incident analysis brief that explains to the security/IT director how the Fundamental Security Design Principles can be
applied to strengthen the organization’s security posture following the incident described in the case. You do not require specific technical information from the
system beyond those supplied for you within the scenario. Rather, you should address each critical element in the Project Two prompt, speaking broadly to what
your analysis and recommendations would be, based on your research from the course materials collected in previous modules.
Using evidence from the scenario, prepare an incident analysis brief for your manager. In your brief, you should limit your analysis by selecting one security
objective and two Fundamental Security Design Principles from the table below.
Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below. Most of the critical elements align with a particular course competency, shown in brackets.
I. Scenario Analysis: Using your work in the case study analyses (Modules Two through Four) and other course resources as reference, select the security
objective you think is most relevant to the organization in the case.
A. Describe why the loss of your selected security objective (confidentiality, integrity, or availability) reflects the greatest overall negative impact
on the organization. Use evidence from the scenario and your coursework to support your selection.
B. Summarize the negative impacts on people, processes, and technologies associated with the loss of your selected security objective.
II. Recommendations: Select two Fundamental Security Design Principles as criteria, and recommend solutions to remedy the loss of the selected security
objective based on your assessment of the incident.
A. Explain how your solution implements the selected Fundamental Security Design Principles. Provide evidence from the scenario and your
coursework to support your selections.
B. Describe how your solution balances impacts on people, processes, and technologies.
C. Explain which aspect of your solution you would recommend to your manager as the most important to the organization. Support your
response with evidence from the coursework or scenario.
Guidelines for Submission: Your submission should be 3 to 5 pages in length (plus a cover page and references) and should be written in APA format. Use double
spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Include at least three references, which should be cited according to APA style.
