You work for a high-tech company with approximately 390 employees. Your firm recently won a large DoD contract, which will add 30% to the revenue of your organization. It is a high-priority, high-visibility project. You will be allowed to make your own budget, project timeline, and tollgate decisions.
You must develop the proper DoD security policies required to meet DoD standards for delivery of technology services to the U.S. Air Force Cyber Security Center (AFCSC), a DoD agency. To do this, you must develop DoD-approved policies and standards for your IT infrastructure (see the “Tasks” section below). The policies you create must pass DoD-based requirements. Currently, your organization does not have any DoD contracts and thus has no DoD-compliant security policies or controls in place.
The firm’s computing environment includes the following:
§ 12 servers running Microsoft Server 2012 R2, providing the following:
o Active Directory (AD)
o Domain Name System (DNS)
o Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
o Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application (Oracle)
o A Research and Development (R&D) Engineering network segment for testing, separate from the production environment
o Microsoft Exchange Server for e-mail
o Symantec e-mail filter
o Websense for Internet use
