I’m working on a information technology question and need guidance to help me learn.
CYB 260 Project One Guidelines and Rubric
In 2017, internet traffic was generated at a rate of 3,138,420 GB per minute (Domo, n.d.). As the technologies and techniques that are used to collect, catalog,
and analyze the growing amounts of data become more powerful and widespread, the data we generate will play a progressively more important role
economically, socially, and personally. With the expansion in the quantity and the possible uses of personal data, the risk to privacy has likewise risen drastically.
The difficulty of categorizing information as public versus private (given specific contexts) and the elevated costs associated with the preservation of privacy only
make the issue more complex.
For this project, you will take a stakeholder role in a business on the forefront of a privacy issue. You will need to articulate a point of view that reflects your
professional stance on privacy, the laws relevant to the issue, and the business implications of your recommendation.
The project incorporates one milestone, which will be submitted in Module Three. The project will be submitted in Module Five.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course competency:
Articulate an informed position on contemporary issues of privacy and its relation to organizational mission
In a previous module, your instructor provided you with the scenario that you used for the Project One Milestone. You will continue your analysis of this scenario
for this project. You will situate yourself as an executive-level security consultant with the primary responsibility of advising senior management in cybersecurity
matters. As a member of the internal stakeholder board for the proposal presented in the scenario, you will be able to offer essential input. Based on the
information and resources from the scenario and your work from the milestone, prepare a memorandum to the internal stakeholder board specifying your
position on the acceptability of the proposal in the scenario.
You must address the critical elements listed below. The codes shown in brackets indicate the course competency to which each critical element is aligned.
In a memo to the internal stakeholder board, defend your position on the proposed partnership. Your memo should address the balancing of privacy from the
security practitioner’s perspective alongside the corporate mission and business goals.
In your memo, be sure to address the following questions:
I. Are the privacy laws sufficient to ensure that the sharing and use of data will meet the fair information practice principles of the organization?
II. What are the minimum privacy safeguards you would recommend be in place for the individuals’ control over their data? [CYB-260-02]
III. In your opinion, is the proposal a good decision for the organization? Weigh the privacy considerations from a security practitioner’s perspective as well
as the corporate mission and business goals in justifying your position. [CYB-260-02]
