Research Paper: Develop a Computer/Internet Security Policy

Develop a Computer/Internet Security Policy

You have been hired as the CSO (Chief Security Officer) for an organization. Your job is to develop a very brief computer and internet security policy for the organization that covers the following areas:

  • Computer and email acceptable use policy
  • Internet acceptable use policy

Make sure you are sufficiently specific in addressing each area. There are plenty of security policy and guideline templates available online for you to use as a reference or for guidance. Your plan should reflect the business model and corporate culture of a specific organization that you select.

What to turn in:  Computer Use & Internet Security Policy that you create!  This should not be a copy of a policy that you’ve read.

Include at least 3 scholarly references in addition to the course textbook.  The UC Library is a good place to find these references. At least two of the references cited need to be peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles from the library.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

• Be approximately 2-4 pages in length, not including the required cover page and reference page.

• Follow APA6 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.

• Support your answers with the readings from the course and at least three scholarly journal articles to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. The UC Library is a great place to find resources.

• Be clearly and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. You are being graded in part on the quality of your writing.

Tips for developing a great Computer/Internet Security Policy

Understanding that the writing of a perfect Computer/Internet Security Policy is a legal undertaking that needs specificity and accuracy.

The Computer/Internet Security Policy is a binding document that can be used in a court of law if there is evidence of a breach or if there is an issue with the use of the target subject.

You, therefore, need to review the laws around Computer/Internet Security and ensure that the policy adheres to the regulations and/or any standards.
