This assignment consists of five (5) parts:

Part 1: Organization Chart

Part 2: Request for Proposal (RFP) Plan

Part 3: Physical Security Plan

Part 4: Enterprise Information Security Compliance Program

Part 5: Risk Management Plan

Imagine that you have been recently promoted to serve as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for a Fortune 500 organization. This organization has known brand products across the world and expects top-secret methods for safeguarding proprietary information on its recipes and product lines. The Board of Directors request that their information security strategy be upgraded to allow greater opportunities of secure

cloud collaboration
between suppliers and resellers of their products. Another concern they have is the recent number of

hacktivist
attacks that have caused the network to fail across the enterprise. Their concern extends to making sure that they have controlled methods for accessing secured physical areas within their various regional facilities.

For your new position, you will be responsible for developing standards, methods,

roles
, and recommendations that will set the new IT security path for the organization. The existing organization has limited experience in supporting an enhanced level of IT security; therefore, you may need to outsource certain security services.
