Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Security Policies and Plans
Using information from the course materials and the lecture, discuss the difference between a security policy and a security plan.
Assume you are the information technology director of a small firm and that you are tasked to create a security plan for your organization. Describe the major points you would include in your plan, and discuss why they are important to your plan. Your initial response should be a minimum of 500 words in length.
Guided response: Respond to at least three of your classmates’ posts. Has the post accurately described the differences between a security policy and a security plan? In what way do you agree or disagree with the discussion about the differences between the two? Does the plan discussed in the post cover the major areas? What might be missing from the plan? Your replies should be a minimum of 200 words in length and add depth and insight to the discussion. See the About Discussions link in the left-hand navigation pane of your classroom for more information.
