THIS ASSIGNMENT IS IN TWO PARTS 


PART ONE: Understanding Risks in Virtualized Networks 


 

Virtualization (VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and VirtualBox) provides an enterprise with a significant opportunity to increase efficiency and decrease costs in its IT operation. For this task, assume that the vice president of IT operations of an organization has consulted you (chief cyber architect) to provide five advantages and five disadvantages of virtualization and to provide four best principles and practices that can be adopted in a virtualized environment that will reduce the risks associated with virtualization. It may help to select a specific organization with which you are familiar.

Address the following in your paper:

  1. Provide an introductory section on virtualization and its application in enterprise network.
  2. Use a table format to differentiate the advantages and disadvantages of virtualization.
  3. Identify risks and attacks that are associated with the use of virtualization or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
  4. Describe four best practices and principles that will reduce the risks associated with virtualization.
  5. Wrap up with a summary and conclusion.

Length: 3-4 pages, not including titles and reference pages.

References: Support your assignment with a minimum of 4 scholarly resources

Keep your audience in mind. Remember you are not preparing this for an academic audience. Your audience will not care about theoretical or conceptual issues in risk management. They will only care about specific issues, strategies, and scenarios that are relevant to their organization.

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards


PART TWO:  

Using Security Risk Analysis (SRA) in Risk Mitigation 

 

For this task, imagine that you are a senior risk assessor for an organization (it may help to select a specific organization with which you are familiar). You have spent sleepless nights when conducting the security risk analysis (SRA) of the organization. Top-level management determines that the result of the SRA indicated excessive risk. Is excessive risk synonymous with lots of risk? What approaches can you use to handle confirmation of excessive risks in the organization?

Length: 4-6 pages, not including titles and reference pages.

References: Support your assignment with a minimum of 6 scholarly resources.

Your audience for this assignment is yourself. Discuss your own reasoning and thoughts on the assignment prompt and how you would act as the SRA for the organization you have chosen.

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
