Project Part 1 Task 2: Risk Assessment Plan

After creating an initial draft of the risk management plan, the second part of the assigned project requires you to create a draft of the risk assessment (RA) plan. To do so, you must:

  1. Develop an introduction to the plan explaining its purpose and importance.
  2. Create an outline for the RA plan.
  3. Define the scope and boundaries for the RA plan.
  4. Research and summarize RA approaches.
  5. Identify the key roles and responsibilities of individuals and departments within the organization as they pertain to risk assessment.
  6. Develop a proposed schedule for the RA process.
  7. Create a professional report detailing the information above as an initial draft of the RA plan.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student demonstrate an understanding of the competencies covered in the course relating to risk assessments?
  • Did the student include all important components of a RA plan in the outline?
  • Did the student demonstrate good research, reasoning, and decision-making skills in identifying key components and methodologies?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed draft with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

ProjectPart 1 Task 3: Risk Mitigation Plan

Senior management at Health Network allocated funds to support a risk mitigation plan, and have requested that the risk manager and team create a plan in response to the deliverables produced within the earlier phases of the project. The risk mitigation plan should address the identified threats described in the scenario for this project, as well as any new threats that may have been discovered during the risk assessment. You have been assigned to develop this new plan.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student develop a high-quality risk mitigation plan based on material provided in the course?
  • Did the student use information obtained from the earlier parts of the project to build out a risk mitigation plan?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed draft with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

Project Part 2

Project Part 2 Task 1: Business Impact Analysis (BIA) Plan

This part of the project is a continuation of Project Part 1 in which you prepared an RA plan and a risk mitigation plan for Health Network. Senior management at the company has decided to allocate funds for a business impact analysis (BIA). Because of the importance of risk management to the organization, senior management is committed to and supportive of performing a BIA. You have been assigned to develop the BIA plan.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student complete a BIA plan based on inputs from the instructor regarding feedback on submitted work?
  • Did the student include the primary objectives of a BIA: identify critical business functions, identify critical resources, identify MAO and impact, and identify recovery objectives?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed report with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

Project Part 2 Task 2: Business Continuity Plan (BCP)

After having reviewed and being impressed by your business impact analysis (BIA), senior management at Health Network has decided that your team must also develop a BCP. Management has allocated all funds for a BCP and your team has their full support, as well as permission to contact any of them directly for participation or inclusion in your BCP plan. You have been assigned to develop this new plan.

 

Winter storms on the East Coast have affected the ability of Health Network employees to reach the Arlington offices in a safe and timely manner. However, no BCP plan currently exists to address corporate operations. The Arlington office is the primary location for business units, such as Finance, Legal, and Customer Support. Some of the corporate systems, such as the payroll and accounting applications, are located only in the corporate offices. Each corporate location is able to access the other two, and remote virtual private network (VPN) exist between each Production data center and the corporate locations.

The corporate systems are not currently being backed up and should be addressed in the new plan. The BCP should also include some details regarding how the BCP will be tested.

You may refer to the following additional resources to help you and your team develop a BCP, and you may use a BCP template if found during your research.

  • Did the student completely fill out a BCP template if found during their research?
  • Did the student completely understand BCP concepts presented in class?

  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed report with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

ProjectPart 2 Task 3: Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)

Your project on risk management, the BIA, and the BCP have been well received by senior management at Health Network. They now want you to develop a DRP in order to overcome any mishaps that might occur in the future. You may research and use National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) templates to develop a DRP plan for the company.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student develop a DRP that could recover business operations while efforts are ongoing to restart pervious operations?
  • Did the student completely fill out the template found in their research?
  • Did the student completely understand the DRP constructs presented in class?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed report with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

Project Part 2 Task 4: Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT) Plan

By now you should have developed an RA, a risk mitigation plan, and a BIA, BCP, and DRP.

In this part of the project, you will create a CIRT plan for Health Network. The company headquarters (HQ) handles all incidents because the information security organization is located in Minneapolis, so the plan will have its roots at HQ. Make sure to incorporate your instructor’s feedback on earlier submissions if applicable to the CIRT plan.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student consider the inputs provided in their earlier submissions?
  • Did the student develop a sound CIRT plan?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed report with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?

Risk Management Plan Final Submission

After creating the CIRT plan, compile all project parts and submit to your instructor. Make sure to incorporate your instructor’s feedback on the previous submissions in the final risk management plan.

Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics

  • Did the student consider the inputs provided in their earlier submissions?
  • Did the student develop sound plans based on the requirements described during the project phases?
  • Did the student provide clear and easy-to-understand documentation, which may include tables and other presentation elements?
  • Did the student create a professional, well-developed report with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation?
