Cybersecurity policies

For this final assignment, you will write a 1,200 word
paper outlining a security metrics program for a business that provides
financial services to clients. It should focus on what security metrics are,
why they are needed, and how they can be implemented. You should identify key
performance indicators (KPIs) that can be measured and then develop a security
metrics measurement plan with metric thresholds and resultant actions should
metrics not be met.


You have just acquired and are excited to start taking on new clients. In a request
for proposal (RFP) you received from a Fortune 500 CFO, he asked you to outline
your security metrics program and explain how it is implemented. You couldn’t
answer this question, and as a result, you lost the business. You are now
sweating as you realize how much money you just forfeit the company! To address
this challenge, you have hired a new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)
and his first directive is to collaborate with you to create this program. In
it you need to define the what, why, and how of cybersecurity metrics. In
addition, you need to define KPIs that measure success and outline what will
happen if these metrics are not met. Another RFP has just arrived so time is of
the essence!

Formatting & Sources

Please write your
paper in the MLA format. You may refer to the course material for supporting
evidence, but you must also use 3 other sources and cite them
using the MLA format. Please include a mix of both primary and secondary
sources, with at least one source from a security journal. If you use any lessons as sources, please also cite them in MLA (including the
lesson title and instructor’s name).

Primary sources are first-hand
accounts such as interviews, advertisements, speeches, company documents,
statements, and press releases published by the company in question.

Secondary sources come from
peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Oxford Academic Journal of
Cybersecurity. You may use sources like JSTOR or Google Scholar to find
articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from
reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is
not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles
may be acceptable.)
