In this module, we have touched on a wealth of information. For your final module paper, you are going to assume the role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of an organization that is looking to institute a security program. You need to write up a white paper for senior management that encompasses the following:
- An overview of an information security program and why it is important for an organization
- A list of high-level topics that should be encompassed in a program and a brief explanation of each of those topics
- From those high-level topics, you will take the top two that are most important, in your view, and create basic standards/procedures for implementing safeguards for those topics.
- In your white paper, you will explain why you believe these two topics are the most important to put in place first. What makes these more important than other items?
- The overall paper should be informational, but also provide data and evidence from outside sources to give credence to your discussion.
