Information Security Management

Optiotronics Inc. of Seeton, California, started business in 1998.  Optiotronics, a private firm, offers a revolutionary product leveraging state-of-the-art microtransmitters and video pixilation technology.  Optiotronics’ product provides a video display similar to a computer monitor embedded into a transparent contact lens.  Optiotronics is a pioneer in the field of wearable computing with practical applications that provide heads-up, dashboard displays to several career fields, including the military.

Optiotronics faces a significant problem in managing the growth and security of its company. The company has spent an extraordinary amount of capital in resources & development; it has amassed volumes of intellectual property (copyrights, patents, and trademarks) that directly contribute to its competitive position. However, to accommodate growth, technology has been acquired and deployed without a great deal of centralized planning. Securing the electronic information system has become a paramount importance to the company’s investors.

Responding to this threat, Dr. Melissa Broussard, CEO, has funded the executive position of Chief Security and Compliance Officer (CSCO), and has established the formation of an autonomous department independent of the internal IT structure. It is the mission of the CSCO to implement an information systems security program, manage, and audit the program.  Also, the mission includes alleviating risks to the information system.  Billions of dollars in potential revenues and the reputation of a world-class wearable computing manufacturer are on the line.  Congratulations! You have been hired as the CSCO.

 

As you begin to craft a Security Management Plan for your organization to secure and protect the quality and integrity of the data, you will take this opportunity in the first assignment to create the shell of your Security Management Plan. 

The assignments each week build upon the work and knowledge from the weeks beforehand. You will create 1 document that contains all of the weekly assignments—in separate sections—culminating with the final submission being a single document containing all of the weekly assignments.

You are responsible for adding each of these ongoing Individual Project assignments into your Key Assignment document that will contain a security plan for the organization to be used to protect the organization’s assets.
