Project Management/ Integrating Disaster Recovery, computer science homework help

Question description

QUESTION 1.  Debate: For IT security acquisitions (products or services), which is the most important of the three project management constraints:CostQualityScheduleChoose the constraint (“factor”) that you believe should be prioritized when managing an IT acquisition project. Write a 3 to 5 paragraph briefing statement in which you identify and then defend your selection. Your statement should address the following items:1. Provide definitions for each of the constraints2. Identify your chosen constraint and provide a more detailed description of how this constraint impacts project management (what happens to the other two factors). For example, if you decide that cost is the most important factor, explain the tradeoffs you might need to make with respect to quality and schedule. Or, if you decide that quality is most important (e.g. correct implementation of security controls), explain how that might affect cost and schedule.3. Provide a closing summary of the importance of project management for IT acquisitions (with respect to the overall IT security program).Provide in-text citations and references for 3 or more authoritative sources.

Technology Governance Frameworks
Case Scenario:
You have been assigned to a large, cross-functional team
which is investigating adopting a new governance framework for your company’s
Information Technology governance program. Your first assignment as a member of
this team is to research and write a 2 to 3 page white paper which discusses one
of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) functional areas. The purpose
of this white paper is to “fill in the gaps” for team members from other areas
of the company who are not familiar with the functions and responsibilities of
the Office of the Chief Information Security Officer.
Your assigned CISO
functional area is: Disaster
Recovery / IT Service Continuity (IT
Service Continuity is a subset of Business
Continuity). Your white paper must address the planning, implementation, and
execution aspects of this CISO functional area. Your audience will be familiar
with the general requirements for business continuity planning (BCP), business
impact analysis (BIA), and continuity/recovery strategies for business
operations (e.g. restore in place, alternate worksite, etc.). Your readers will
NOT have in-depth knowledge of the requirements / implementation strategies which
are specific to restoring IT services which support the critical functions of
the business (as identified in a BIA).
Note: in
your Critical Analyses and Discussion
for this case study you will address specific aspects of a governance framework,
e.g. COBIT®, ITIL®, or ISO/IEC 27002, which apply to planning and
implementation of disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity.
Research:
1. 
Read / Review the Week 3 readings:
2.  Find
three or more additional sources which provide information about best practices
for IT Service Continuity / Disaster Recovery planning, implementation, and
execution.  (Hint: begin by exploring https://www.essaybishop.com/write-my-essay/ready.gov/business ) For
the purposes of this assignment, implementation
means the advance work necessary to implement recovery plans by acquiring or
contracting for products, services, infrastructures, and facilities. Execution
means activating the DR/BCP plans and overseeing the recovery operations.
Write:
Using standard terminology
(see case study #1), write a two to three page summary of your research. At a
minimum, your summary must include the following:
1.  An
introduction or overview of disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity which provides
definitions and addresses the reasons why
cybersecurity should be specifically addressed in the company’s DR/BCP strategies and plans. This introduction
should be suitable for an executive audience.
2.  A
separate section which addresses disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity planning
functions performed by staff members in the Office of the CISO.
3. 
A separate section which addresses best
practices for implementing disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity.
Submit For Grading & Discussion

Technology Governance Frameworks
Case Scenario:
You have been assigned to a large, cross-functional team
which is investigating adopting a new governance framework for your company’s
Information Technology governance program. Your first assignment as a member of
this team is to research and write a 2 to 3 page white paper which discusses one
of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) functional areas. The purpose
of this white paper is to “fill in the gaps” for team members from other areas
of the company who are not familiar with the functions and responsibilities of
the Office of the Chief Information Security Officer.
Your assigned CISO
functional area is: Disaster
Recovery / IT Service Continuity (IT
Service Continuity is a subset of Business
Continuity). Your white paper must address the planning, implementation, and
execution aspects of this CISO functional area. Your audience will be familiar
with the general requirements for business continuity planning (BCP), business
impact analysis (BIA), and continuity/recovery strategies for business
operations (e.g. restore in place, alternate worksite, etc.). Your readers will
NOT have in-depth knowledge of the requirements / implementation strategies which
are specific to restoring IT services which support the critical functions of
the business (as identified in a BIA).
Note: in
your Critical Analyses and Discussion
for this case study you will address specific aspects of a governance framework,
e.g. COBIT®, ITIL®, or ISO/IEC 27002, which apply to planning and
implementation of disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity.
Research:
1. 
Read / Review the Week 3 readings:
2.  Find
three or more additional sources which provide information about best practices
for IT Service Continuity / Disaster Recovery planning, implementation, and
execution.  (Hint: begin by exploring https://www.essaybishop.com/write-my-essay/ready.gov/business ) For
the purposes of this assignment, implementation
means the advance work necessary to implement recovery plans by acquiring or
contracting for products, services, infrastructures, and facilities. Execution
means activating the DR/BCP plans and overseeing the recovery operations.
Write:
Using standard terminology
(see case study #1), write a two to three page summary of your research. At a
minimum, your summary must include the following:
1.  An
introduction or overview of disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity which provides
definitions and addresses the reasons why
cybersecurity should be specifically addressed in the company’s DR/BCP strategies and plans. This introduction
should be suitable for an executive audience.
2.  A
separate section which addresses disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity planning
functions performed by staff members in the Office of the CISO.
3. 
A separate section which addresses best
practices for implementing disaster recovery / IT Service Continuity.
