1) Why does Sifers-Grayson need OPSEC — especially at the test range?
This question is expected to be asked at the morning meeting with the Sifers-Grayson executives.
As a Nofsinger consultant, it’s your job to have an answer ready. You should focus on identifying critical information & potential sources of threats, e.g. a hacker getting into the RF transmission streams and taking over a test vehicle. (See attached diagram of the test range & communications between it and the Engineering R&D Center)Using the readings and additional sources found on your own, prepare a 3 to 5 paragraph “talking points” paper that your team leader can use to respond. Post your paper in this forum for discussion with your team mates.
Use at least 3 authoritative sources in your response and document those sources using a reference list at the end of your posting.
2) Prepare a short “talking points” paper in which you answer the question: Does Sifers-Grayson need a SOC?
In your talking points, you should address the phases of the incident response process (i.e. Incident Detection, Containment, Eradication, & Recovery) and discuss the role of that a Security Operations Center will play in making sure that incidents are handled and reported in an effective and efficient manner.
Your “talking points” should be 3 to 5 paragraphs long. Your audience is a group of Sifers-Grayson executives who are unhappy at the thought of diverting more profits to pay for yet another IT manager and subordinate staff.
Provide in-text citations and references for 3 or more authoritative sources. Put the reference list at the end of your article.
