Request Description

Identify the information assets that exist in your organization. If you work for a large organization, refer only to your own department. Conduct an information asset inventory on your organization using the Asset Inventory and Risk Assessment Table located on the student website. Include information assets from the following general asset categories:

  • People
  • Processes
  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Databases

Complete the first six columns of the matrix and the annual rate of occurrence (ARO) column. Conduct a threat analysis for five selected assets, one from each of the asset areas listed above. List each threat with its associated asset in the matrix. Estimate the ARO for each threat.

Write a 3-5 page summary that discusses the top risks faced by the company and the strategies that should be taken to mitigate them. In your findings, discuss the following:

  • Describe how you determined the values for the assets you have listed. The valuation process must take into account the value the company would lose should the information asset be lost, modified, or destroyed. Discuss the vulnerabilities that led you to list the threats. Identify which threats you consider serious and which ones you consider not serious. For your conclusion, describe how this assignment has changed your view on the value of information in the summary of your paper.
