Week 8 – CSC White Paper

 Unlimited Attempts AllowedDetails

Based on your studies in the past weeks prepare a white paper to critically evaluate the SANS Critical Security Controls (CSC) Survey document below.

SANS 2013 Critical Security Controls Survey: Moving from Awareness to Action


The final paper will run from 6 to 9 pages long, double spaced with appropriate citations and will be due during the final week of the course. The paper is to be written in APA format and will include a cover page, abstract, table of contents, introduction, conclusion and a works cited (References) page. The elements detailed above do not count toward the minimum page requirement.


Adoption of the Critical Security Controls are hot topics in organizations.

Review the CSC survey document and provide suggestion and evaluate the controls for an organization to move from awareness of the CSC’s to implementation.

Please feel free to make assumptions as needed for you to develop recommendations for a fictional CISO.  

You are to act as a external consultant providing recommendations to this CISO.  You should specifically ensure that you do not spend much time defining control rather suggest how implementing that control can positively impact the business while ensuring security of that CISO’s company.  Also, you should bring in any other examples, cases, or lessons learned based on your research this semester.

Your Paper should have a cover page, abstract, table of contents, introduction, conclusion and references..
