Due Week 10 and worth 200 points

Note: Chapter 5 of the required textbook may be helpful in the completion of the assignment.

The audit planning process directly affects the quality of the outcome. A proper plan ensures that resources are focused on the right areas and that potential problems are identified early. A successful audit first outlines the objectives of the audit, the procedures that will be followed, and the required resources.

Choose an organization you are familiar with and develop an eight to ten page IT infrastructure audit for compliance in which you:

  1. Define the following items for an organization you are familiar with:
    1. Scope
    2. Goals and objectives
    3. Frequency of the audit
    4. Duration of the audit
  2. Identify the critical requirements of the audit for your chosen organization and explain why you consider them to be critical requirements.
  3. Choose privacy laws that apply to the organization, and suggest who is responsible for privacy within the organization.
  4. Develop a plan for assessing IT security for your chosen organization by conducting the following:
    1. Risk management
    2. Threat analysis
    3. Vulnerability analysis
    4. Risk assessment analysis
  5. Explain how to obtain information, documentation, and resources for the audit.
  6. Analyze how each of the seven (7) domains aligns within your chosen organization.
  7. Align the appropriate goals and objectives from the audit plan to each domain and provide a rationale for your alignment.
  8. Develop a plan that:
    1. Examines the existence of relevant and appropriate security policies and procedures.
    2. Verifies the existence of controls supporting the policies.
    3. Verifies the effective implementation and ongoing monitoring of the controls.
  9. Identify the critical security control points that must be verified throughout the IT infrastructure, and develop a plan that includes adequate controls to meet high-level defined control objectives within this organization.
  10. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student's name, the professor's name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Describe the parameters required to conduct and report on IT infrastructure audit for organizational compliance.
  • Describe the components and basic requirements for creating an audit plan to support business and system considerations
  • Develop IT compliance audit plans
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in security strategy and policy formation.
