About the Case Study
You have just been employed as CISO for a growing company named Super Courier. Super Courier is courier organization similar to Aramax but much smaller and is based in Abu Dhabi. Super Courier has clients all over the UAE and interfaces with international couriers.
Super Courier has grown so rapidly that it still does not have good quality information security governance structures and policies. Your first job as CISO is to develop a plan for the information security management system which you will put in place at Super Courier. You don?t need to work out every detail at this stage â€“ think of this as a starting point so that you can show the board and senior management that you know what you are doing and the overall direction you plan to move in. The company?s main requirements are in the areas of policies, contingency planning, and SETA. The sections that you will address in your proposal are given below.
Parts of this case study assignment are due in stages and the final complete project is due by the 30th Nov 2016. You can work individually or in groups of 2 or 3 (you cannot change groups once you have started), with specific instructions as follows:
You should develop a skeleton proposal for the company. A skeleton proposal has all the major headings but only some sections completed. Your final document should be submitted as a neatly-typed document in a professional-looking report format, with page numbers, numbered sections and a table of contents. Your report should include the following major headings, with section 1, section 2, section 3, and section 6 completed in full, and with ONE of section 4, or section 5 completed in full.
Groups of 2

Groups of 3
You should develop a full proposal for the company. A full proposal has all of the numbered sections completed. Your final document should be submitted as a neatly-typed document in a professional-looking report format, with page numbers, numbered sections and a table of contents. Your report should include the following major headings, with section 1, section 2, section 3, section 4, section 5 and section 6 completed in full.
Policy on Equal Work in Groups
All groups are to divide work equally on all sections. Every group member must participate in writing every section of the final proposal. You are to use the task management functions on Blackboard to assist in the equitable sharing of tasks between group members. If a group member is not doing their fair share, report them to the instructor. If the group cannot come to an arrangement for the equal sharing of tasks, the instructor may grade members individually based on observed performance and contribution to the group. The burden of proof to establish that they have contributed equitably to the project will fall solely on the student in this event â€“ the instructor will otherwise rely on their observations and assessment of reports made by group members.
IT Technical Communication
The English in your final project should be to a good standard. You are writing a professional document for a professional audience. There is no excuse for not using spell check! Your formatting should be consistent, fonts should not change throughout the document, headings should be numbered, and so on. IT Technical Communication is a major learning outcome (MALO) for the course and will be part of the assessment of this project.
A full proposal includes all of the following sections:
1 Overview of the Company
Provide an overview of the company history, including an organization chart, description of physical facilities, and general description of organization computing and in-place security resources. Your overview should also include a mission statement, vision statement and values statement for the company. You may make up any details you need so long as they are consistent with the facts established in ?About the Case Studyâ€.
2 Contingency Planning
Produce a planning framework for contingency planning by providing a template for each of the following components:
? Business Impact Analysis
? Incident Response Plan
? Disaster Recovery Plan
? Business Continuity Plan
This does not require you to complete these components; only provide a detailed outline that the company can fill in to create these plans. You may find templates online that could be used and require minor modification.
3 Enterprise Information Security Policy
Create an Enterprise Information Security Policy for the company, based on the template in the text. Feel free to use assumptions to fill the policy with information as if you are the CISO of the company. A detailed policy is not required.
4 Issue Specific Policies
Create a list outlining the ISSPs that the company will need (up to 10), and specify what each policy should address (1 â€“ 3 sentences each). As an example, create one issue-specific security policy for the case, based on the template in the text. The issue you are to address is fair and responsible use of office e-mail. Feel free to use assumptions to fill the policy with information as if you are the CISO.
5 Security Education, Training, and Awareness
Create a plan for a Security Education, Training, and Awareness (SETA) program for the company. Base your program on material and ideas presented in chapter 5 of your text and associated in-class readings. The program?s plan should list role-appropriate SETA activities for all categories of employees in the company, with a plan for a training cycle. You should also develop two example security awareness materials: one security awareness brochure, and one security awareness poster.
6 Security Staff
Build a security team for this size organization including specifications for the numbers and types of security professionals needed. For each position state qualifications and experience required for the new staff that will be recruited.
For each section of your project write at least half a page (and place it at the start of the section) justifying the templates that you chose. Explain why you are using a particular template or explain your approach or make comments about the template.
Additionally, for each section of the project, list the main headings that you have in the template for that section. You must ensure that you do not omit any important part. For example, for the BIA you must say what are the main headings or parts to your BIA and you should be confident that you have not missed something important.
Drafts of the major subsections must be submitted regularly during the semester to Blackboard. The project is broken down to 4 assignments which must be submitted by the due dates. These submissions will be reviewed and discussed and guidance provided on how to improve. You should improve your work and resubmit. Each assignment can be submitted three times.
You must submit this project in stages as four separate assignments to Blackboard.
It is recommended that you submit the complete project to Blackboard after submitting the last of the four assignments. However it is not compulsory. It will be convenient for you to have the project in one file ? this will help you when reviewing and preparing for the fianl exam.
