This week you will prepare a local security policy for securing the data center in an organization. A systems specific (local policy) is a policy for a specific area of protection. You are creating an access control policy for password protection.
Assignment for writing a local policy
The template will serve as a resource in the development of a local policy. In Project 1, you developed an outline for the framework. In Project 2, you will write a local policy. Security policy is based on choosing the appropriate controls to protect the organization. Choose an organization from industry, government, private business, or military that you want to protect from unauthorized access. You may choose from any established industry, any government organization or military division such as General Dynamics, Department of Defense, Department of State, United States Air Force, etc. You are protecting the data center from unauthorized access. This requires that you write a policy for protecting the data center from unauthorized access by preventing personnel who are not authorized to use the resources of the organization from gaining access and potentially causing harm.
