Assignment 9.1
This assignment is worth 50 points.
One year ago, the Mesusa Corporation conducted a threat evaluation and created a list of threats, the cost per incident and the projected frequency of occurrence. During the year, Mesusa decided to implement controls designed to reduce the cost per incidence and the number of threats. The attached spreadsheet (top of page - MesusaControls.xls) indicates the pre-control cost and frequency of occurrence, the cost of controls for each type of threat, and the post-control cost and frequency of occurrence. Calculate the AROs, the ALEs and the CBA for this initiative, and return the completed spreadsheet.

This assignment is worth 50 points; 25 points for your original posting, and 25 points for participation.
Once you have finished 9.1, present only your CBA totals to the forum. Describe which controls were worth the cost, which were not, and why. For those that were not, determine what alternative controls are available.

In your response, comment on whether you agree with the analysis and the recommended alternate controls.
