Risk and Security Management Plan
You currently serve as an IT security intern for a military defense contractor called Military Delivery Logistics (MDL) based in Washington, D.C. Because your organization contracts with the U.S. military, the organization is required to perform regular risk and security assessments on all its systems.
Senior management at MDL has decided that the existing risk and security management plan for the organization is out of date and that a new risk management plan needs to be developed to stay in compliance with strict military and Department of Defense (DoD) requirements. Because of the importance of risk management to the organization, senior management is committed to, and supportive of, the project to develop a new plan. You have been assigned to develop this new plan.
The risk and security management plan will consist of a number of different sections. You have been asked to draft the Business Continuity section.
Draft the Business Continuity section of the Risk Security plan. Assume that MDL has 5 terabytes (TB) of data that needs to be accessible immediately following any disaster or security incident. Account for the following items as key parts of your plan:
- Describe how to recover a business operation while efforts are ongoing to restart previous operations.
- Discuss potential vendor partnerships that need to be in place to ensure a speedy recovery and business continuity.
- Describe a testing plan to correct any issues with the continuity plan.
- ISO/IEC 22399:2007 Guidelines for incident preparedness and operational continuity management.
- ISO/IEC 24762:2008 Guidelines for information and communications technology disaster recovery services.
Discuss and cite at least three credible or scholarly sources other than the assigned readings to support your analysis and positions. You may also cite assigned readings as applicable. The CSU Global Library is a good place to find scholarly sources. Your paper should be 8-10 pages in length with document and citation formatting per the CSU Global Writing Center (Links to an external site.).
Requirements: 8 pages
