Assignment 1: Business Continuity Plan Report
During your first week as a Senior Information Systems Security director, you met
with the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Security Officer (CSO). During
the meeting, they revealed their deep concerns with the organization’s business
continuity plans (BCP). Since you were previously responsible for BCPs for a large
enterprise they are requesting that you review the company’s BCP staffing plans and
training plans.
They would like you to provide a report with your findings and recommendations for
corrective action.
Additionally, include why it is important to include legal representatives on the
business continuity planning team and provide an example of laws or regulation the
company should include to remain compliant.
While there is not a specific page requirement for this assignment, students are
required to fully develop ideas and answer questions to the point that no further
questions are left in the mind of the reader. If the instructor can clearly find the
answers to their questions, the ideas within the report are fully developed. If there are
unanswered or under-answered questions, further development of the report is
required.
Keep the following in mind:




More words do not necessarily indicate more meaning.
When an employee is tasked with a project in the workplace that requires a
report, the report should fully answer all the questions needing to be answered.
In this school environment, students are learning how to prepare such
documents.
Consider your audience. Although instructors are very knowledgeable on the
subject matter, they need to verify that the student has absorbed the material
through a written report. Students should therefore write to an audience of a coworker or classmate who does not know the answers to the questions posed.
For students who are more comfortable with more specific guidelines, ideas can
generally be developed in one to three paragraphs. The goal of writing in this
class is to demonstrate what you have learned.
