Assignment: Align Security Policy Frameworks to Business Objectives
Learning Objectives and Outcomes
§ Research IT security policy frameworks.
§ Describe how some frameworks relate to an industry-specific organization.
You work as a junior security analyst for a governmental organization with Department of Defense (DoD) ties. Your manager has asked you to:
§ Identify and explain three business considerations relating to security policy frameworks
§ Describe the factors relating to them, especially for a DoD-focused organization
Your organization’s long-term strategic goal is to make DoD its primary focus of business. In doing so, your organization will be faced with a different set of business considerations—that is, DoD contracts, their security level requirements, and their time constraints.
For this assignment:
1. Research security policy frameworks appropriate for a DoD-focused organization.
2. Create a table showing three DoD frameworks and align them to your firm’s business considerations and goal of becoming a DoD-focused organization.
3. Create a summary report with an introduction describing business considerations relating to a DoD-supplier organization, the table you created in Step 1, and a conclusion that includes rationale for choosing the frameworks.
