Service Level Agreement Requirement
once security requirements have been defined, an organization must have a way to ensure these requirements are satisfied. Security controls are safeguards or countermeasures implemented by organizations to protect all types of assets (data, physical, personnel, etc.) from threats to confidentiality, integrity, or availability. Trade groups such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provide collections of security controls intended to address critical areas of cybersecurity concern; however, these guidelines provide different levels of detail, vary in prescriptiveness, and apply to different industries and organizational structures. Ultimately, it is up to each organization to determine how to best implement security controls to meet an organization’s expectations for asset protection. As such, the security practitioner’s role centers around the selection, design, implementation, and management of the policies, procedures, standards, and guidelines designed to implement these controls.
In the milestone assignment for this project, you examined employee training as a control measure to reduce the incidents and effects of social engineering. As you saw, training is a key method for incorporating security best practices. However, it is not the only type of control measure relied on by cybersecurity professionals. In this project, you will incorporate instructor feedback on the milestone as you envision a more comprehensive approach to security controls at an organization.
In this project, you will analyze requirements, select appropriate security controls, and specify methods to implement your selected controls to satisfy the requirements. You will demonstrate your mastery of the following course competency:
CYB-260-03: Design security controls and practices for humans in the system
An initial agreement has been made, and Helios Health Insurance has provided a service level agreement (SLA) that defines the relationship between Fit-vantage and Helios. You have been tasked with recommending implementation of the controls detailed in the SLA. Now that the partnership is in place, the insurance company’s SLA contains the terms and conditions that require evidence of how Fit-vantage will address three critical controls—specifically, how the organization will use awareness training to defend against social engineering attacks.
To complete this task, you will prepare service level agreement requirement recommendations for the internal stakeholder board identifying an approach to meeting the requirements in the scenario.
Prepare a brief that outlines the requirement recommendations for the service level agreement and describes your approach to meeting the requirements of the scenario. You must address the critical elements listed below. The codes shown in brackets indicate the course competency to which each critical element is aligned.
I. Select two sub-controls that address the requirements of the scenario.
A. Control One: Justify how your selected control type (i.e., policy, standard, procedure, or guideline) and implementation will meet the requirements. [CYB-260-03]
B. Control Two: Justify how your selected control type (i.e., policy, standard, procedure, or guideline) and implementation will meet the requirements. [CYB-260-03]
II. Describe the necessity for a training program to address a specific social engineering threat. [CYB-260-03]
III. Describe the expected outcomes of a training program that addresses the social engineering threat you identified in the previous critical element. [CYB-260-03]
