Gathering requirements and collecting data are important elements in learning ab

Gathering requirements and collecting data are important elements in learning about the organization’s security posture status, and as input to any proposal or action plan for improvements. There are many methods of collecting data and information.
After reading the article Setting the Course PDF on … about gathering and analyzing project requirements, write an initial post in which you share your experience with data collection and requirement gathering for a proposal or project. Align your experience with the importance of how data is collected for security awareness programs. Explain what method you used to collect it. Why did you select this method over others? How does this compare to data collection for security awareness programs?

Based on market trends, Gartner predicted security spending worldwide would have

Based on market trends, Gartner predicted security spending worldwide would have reached approx. $86 billion in 2016 and exceed this amount by 2020. However, there has been no evidence that this increase in spending has led to better security for many organizations. Maybe the real problem might be too much focus on investments in security technology and not placing enough attention on designing security architecture and infrastructure.
In your discussion, discuss THREE (3) reasons why you agreed or disagreed with the following statement:
Utilizing security frameworks such as the Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture (SABSA) or Open Security Architecture (OSA) to establish a common foundation for our network architecture is far more critical to sound security design than acquiring the best security technologies.

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an exceptionally convenient access management mechanism.

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an exceptionally convenient access management mechanism. Single sign-on is a mechanism used to simplify the login process for a connected group of websites and applications. “Multi-partner SSO worries me tremendously,” Kenneth S. Robb, a Cyber Security & Risk Consultant at Citadel Cyber Solutions. “It falls squarely in the “Convenience” model for users to hop back and forth between related systems.
Discuss 3 potential security risks with using Single Sign-On
Discuss 1 way in which the SSO mechanism is different from a federated system

Evaluating The Implementation of NIST Cybersecurity Framework (version 1.1) As

Evaluating The Implementation of NIST Cybersecurity Framework (version 1.1)
As part of the University’s implementation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, an organization-wide security assessment resulted in a prioritized data security mitigation and remediation plan –which became a launch point for an ongoing dialogue on a more holistic approach to security issues in general.
Situation:
The University of _ – with 5,400 faculty members serving 16 schools on five campuses and close ties to the University of _ Medical Center – ranks in the very top cluster of U.S. public research universities. The decentralized nature of cybersecurity management made it challenging for the University’s central IT organization to understand and manage multiple cybersecurity risk efforts and plans.
Drivers:
The need to meet cybersecurity needs associated with managing federal grant recipients while alleviating complexity.
Process:
_ Information Technology initiated a three-step hybrid approach, which builds an environment for those needing NIST 800-171 compliance and fits within the Cybersecurity Framework, as the basis for all risk assessment across the University.
Lessons Learned:
Departments that did not embrace the initial pilot Information Technology risk assessment process due to its complexity would welcome a process organized along the lines of the Cybersecurity Framework and NIST 800-171.
Adopting specific guidelines like NIST 800-171 could actually make requirements for compliance easier to communicate and more widely accepted.
Note: _
Case Study Questions:
Explain three ways how the Framework offers a flexible way to address cybersecurity, including cybersecurity’s effect on physical, cyber, and people dimensions.
Explain three ways how the Framework can assist organizations in addressing cybersecurity as it affects the privacy of customers, employees, and other parties.

The CISO of the organization reaches out to you, the senior information security

The CISO of the organization reaches out to you, the senior information security officer, and tasks you with creating an agency-wide security awareness program. He states that he will give you all of his support to complete this project (remember, this is the first component of security awareness program). He hands you a security gap analysis (the second component of a security awareness program) that was conducted, which shows 10 major security findings. These 10 deficiencies will serve as the foundation for developing the agency’s security awareness program (see the Case Document for more details on the gap analysis)
Based on the scenario provided in the Case Document, develop the Introduction to your Proposal. In your introduction, be sure to include the purpose of the proposal, address the security concerns of the chief executive officer (CEO), explain why the security awareness proposal will be vital to the organization, describe how the security posture will be addressed, clarify how human factors will be assessed, and list any organizational factors that will contribute to the status of the security posture
