Assignment 10545

The primary purpose of this project is for you to
demonstrate your understanding of the principles covered in this course. You
will create a minimum 12 PowerPoint slides to summarize the policy review
conducted and your recommendations for the next steps the merged company should
take to protect its data and information assets. The cover, summary/conclusion
and reference slides are not part of the slide count. It will also include a
minimum of 5 references. The grading rubric provides additional information
about content and formatting of your presentation.

Each policy review and
recommendations presentation should address the following:

Current policy:
Discuss the current (as per the case study) IT cybersecurity policy.
New technology:
Describe the functionality of the new technology selected for
implementation and the challenges associated with the current
cybersecurity policy. Identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities that could be
introduced by the new technology that might not be mitigated by
technological configuration management.
Recommendations:
Discuss revisions and modifications that must be made to the current IT
cybersecurity policy to ensure that the new technology does not compromise
the organization’s cybersecurity posture. Address the inter- and
intra-organization leadership, managerial, and policy challenges and
effects associated with the recommendations.
