Written Assignment 1
Write a 2- to 3-page paper (500 to 825 words), double-spaced, in APA format focused on designing an ICS/SCADA system, including a network diagram depicting the system components. Identify the major concepts, technologies, components, and security issues related to communications and data networks. Examine the architecture of a system and identify significant vulnerabilities, risks, and points at which specific security technologies/methods should be employed.
First, choose an ICS/SCADA system to depict. This may be a real or fictitious system. If it is a real system, please include citations for the organization and system design. Then, present the following sections in your paper:
Introduction/System Organization: Describe the organization that owns the system. What is the name of the organization? How large is the organization? Where is the headquarters? Are there additional sites?
Components: Explain the components of the system and include the network diagram in this section.
Future Challenges: Examine the architecture of this system and identify significant vulnerabilities and risks. Be sure to document what you believe will be difficult to manage in terms of security for this system.
Submit the paper to your mentor for grading.
This assignment corresponds to or addresses the following Cybersecurity Program outcomes for a Bachelor of Science degree:
Students apply cybersecurity design best practices and technologies to prevent and mitigate cyberattacks and vulnerabilities.
Students design, implement, and administer networks in a secure manner by integrating network defense technologies, monitoring tools, and measures.
Your work on this assignment should reflect your ability to:
Examine the architecture of a typical, complex system and identify significant vulnerabilities, risks, and points at which specific security technologies/methods should be employed. (System architecture)
Describe the fundamental concepts, technologies, components, and security issues related to communications and data networks. (Fundamental concepts, technologies, components, and security issues)
