You need to analyze the features of three videoconferencing systems and provide an overview of each system. After you complete the overview of the systems, you'll recommend a system which best meets the business functionality and security requirements. You will also prepare a set of high level executive briefing slides to give the CEO and CIO an overview of your study. Your study and recommendation will be critical to the company's success.

Cybersecurity professionals are frequently required to assess the security, risk applications, and systems for business communications before they can be added to an organization's network. CISOs need to assess risks posed to the organization and develop new security measures or adjust current measures to address these risks appropriately. These evaluations involve comparing competing applications or systems against the organization's baseline to determine the best balance between business needs and the security and risk appetite of the organization.

Videoconferencing and collaboration systems vary in cost, configuration, functionality, use, and collaboration capability. These systems are trusted to facilitate sensitive and proprietary discussions through their use of encrypted communication channels. Yet these systems have vulnerabilities and are prone to threats and attacks ranging from phishing, credential compromise, and even malware insertion. Therefore, analysis of possible threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities inherent in these systems is critical in developing defense and protection strategies for voice and video data at all endpoints and during transit.

In this project, you will create a proposal for a secure videoconferencing system, which will include an executive summary, briefing/slide presentation, and lab report. The details can be found in the final step of the project.

There are six steps to the project, and the project as a whole should take about two weeks to complete. Begin with the workplace scenario and then continue to Step 1.


Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing, Slides to Support Executive Briefing, Lab Report

Step 1: Develop Functional Requirements for Videoconferencing

The first step in your proposal for a secure videoconferencing system is to develop a set of functional requirements for videoconferencing that you believe the media company will need based on its geographic dispersion and business needs.

In developing those requirements, research three videoconferencing solutions such as Skype, GotoMeeting, Polycom, and Cisco Webex and explain their capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages. Identify costs as well as implementation and support requirements.

The functional requirements and the three possible solutions will be a section of your Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing. In the next step, you will review the challenges of implementing those solutions.

Step 2: Discuss Implementation Challenges

In the previous step, you outlined the requirements for secure videoconferencing for the company and outlined three potential solutions. Part of your final proposal should also include the advantages and disadvantages of the implementation options for the three systems you selected. This section of the proposal also must include the changes the media company will need to make to implement the systems.

Additionally, explain how system administration or privileged identity management will operate with these systems. You will also need to examine how data exfiltration will occur with each of the new systems.

The changes to the systems and challenges for the implementation of these potential solutions will be an important section of your Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing. In the next step, you will take a closer look at the track records of each of the potential videoconferencing vendors.

Step 3: Identify Vendor Risks

You've finished outlining the pros and cons of three videoconferencing systems. Now, it's time to take a close look at how they serve their clients. This will take some research. Look at the systems' known vulnerabilities and exploits. Examine and explain the past history of each vendor with normal notification timelines, release of patches, or work-arounds (solutions within the system without using a patch). Your goal is to know the timeliness of response with each company in helping customers stay secure.

This step will be a section of your Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing.

In the next step, you will outline best practices for secure videoconferencing that will be part of your overall proposal to management.

Step 4: Develop Best Practices for Secure Videoconferencing

The last few steps have been devoted to analyzing potential videoconferencing solutions. But obtaining a trusted vendor is just part of the security efforts. Another important step is to ensure that users and system administrators conduct the company's videoconferencing in a secure manner. In this step, outline security best practices for videoconferencing that you would like users and systems administrators to follow. Discuss how these best practices will improve security and minimize risks of data exfiltration as well as snooping.

This "best practices" section will be part of the overall Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing.

In the next step, you will develop system integrity checks within a virtual lab environment.

Step 5: Develop System Integrity Checks

As part of the overall proposal, the CISO has asked you to develop system integrity checks for files shared between users of the videoconferencing systems. These checks will ensure file protection and prevent exfiltration of sensitive files.

The lab exercise will show how this is done. In this step, you will generate a lab report that will be part of your final assignment. The lab instructions will tell you what the report needs to contain.

Step 6: Submit Your Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing and All Related Materials

It's time to prepare your materials on secure videoconferencing for management. Your task is to recommend a system that best meets the business functionality and security requirements of the company. As part of that recommendation, you will also prepare a set of high-level executive briefing slides to give the CEO and CIO an overview of your study.

The assignments for this project are as follows:

  1. Executive briefing: This is a three- to five-slide visual presentation for business executives and board members.
  2. Executive summary: This is a one-page summary at the beginning of your Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing.
  3. Proposal for Secure Videoconferencing: Your report should be a minimum six-page double-spaced Word document with citations in APA format. The page count does not include figures, diagrams, tables or citations.
  4. Lab report: Generated from Workspace.

Submit all four components to the assignment folder.
