4043.3.4 : Incident Response
The graduate develops security incident response plans that align to an organization’s security goals and objectives and maintain business continuity.
Many organizations marginalize the management of the security of their infrastructure in hopes that they will not be the target of cyberattacks. However, cyberattacks happen frequently and tend to become more sophisticated over time. In reality, every organization is a likely target of malicious actors. These attacks result in a range of impacts on an organization and its core business and could significantly interrupt operations. To be proactive, organizations need to have structures, processes, and plans in place to counter and respond to potential attacks and to deal with the consequences of successful attacks. A suitable security management plan and well-defined security goals that support the overall goals of the organization can ensure a reasonable level of business continuity, even in the case of security incidents. In any organization, the individuals on the IT staff must work together to support the security goals of the organization. These individuals play significant roles in detecting and preventing security incidents before they occur. In the case of successful attacks, security management professionals are tasked with acting quickly to mitigate the attack’s effects. In this assessment, you will refer to the attached “Case Study,” which contains details regarding a security incident at a small non-governmental organization (NGO). In part I of this task, you will analyze the security incident and provide specific examples and details from the case study to support your risk assessment. In part II, you will create a plan to effectively address the aftermath of the incident and manage the NGO’s ongoing security risks.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Part I: Incident Analysis and Response
A. Determine why the attack on Azumer Water’s infrastructure was successful, including the specific vulnerabilities that allowed the attack to occur. Provide details from the case study to support your claims.
B. Explain how the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Azumer Water’s operations and PII (personally identifying information) data have been compromised, using NIST, ISO 27002, or another industry-standard framework to support two claims of compromise.
C. Identify a federal regulation this NGO violated, providing a specific example from the case study as evidence of Azumer Water’s noncompliance.
D. Recommend immediate steps to mitigate the impact of the incident, using specific examples from the case study to justify how these steps would mitigate the impact.
E. Explain how having an incident response plan in place will benefit Azumer Water, using details from the case study to support your explanation.
Part II: Risk Assessment and Management
F. Discuss two processes to increase information assurance levels within the organization and bring Azumer Water into compliance with the violated federal regulation identified in part C.
G. Recommend technical solutions to counter the remaining effects of the attack in the case study and to prevent future attacks.
H. Recommend an organizational structure for IT and security management, including a logical delineation of roles and adequate coverage of responsibilities, to support the efficient discovery and mitigation of future incidents.
I. Describe your risk management approach for Azumer Water based on the likelihood, severity, and impact categorization of two risks in the case study.
J. Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
