Assignment 2.2 (post to the Week 2 Forum)
This assignment is worth 50 points; 25 points for your original posting, and 25 points for participation.
While Project Management is a standalone course, it certainly has relevance in regard to information security management. This week, you'll be conducting research on what information is available on how the two can converge. Find at least two articles that discuss either project management in terms of information security or information security in terms of project management. Summarize the articles, and include your opinion on the major points.
Minimum Posting Requirements: You must post at least five messages to get credit for participation. The first message is your original posting, is due by Wed. At least two of the other messages must be responses to other student original postings. This is a pass/fail type of grade. If you meet the minimum requirements you get the points. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, you'll get no points for participation. Messages must be posted on more than one day. Don't wait until the last minute!
Assignment 2.3 (Post to your Blog)
This assignment is worth 20 points.
Time to start adding to that blog! If you are not sure what to include, you might want to re-read the assignment located at the top of the Week 1 Assignments.
Group Assignment-Week 2 (post to your Group Forum)
This assignment is worth 50 points.
Your task is to create a comprehensive WBS, including tasks to be done during each process; Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling, and Closing for creating a security awareness program at RWW. At this point, assume you are working from the ground up. Have one person per group post your WBS to the Group Forum with a subject line of "WBSv1.0". We'll take another look at these later in the course.
