CMGT 431  Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Testing and Assessment Strategies

Instructions: Security Assessment for an enterprise must be incorporated into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in order to be a secure, integrated process. Testing of selected security controls ensures that applications meet business requirements, function as planned, and protect associated data securely from attack. A security assessment of the targeted environment identifies vulnerabilities that may cause a security breach and specifies the security controls that mitigate the vulnerabilities. Refer to NIST SP 800-53 rev 4 for identification of the eighteen candidate security control families and associated security controls. Choose five distinct security control families as specified in SP 800-53 rev 4, click on the chosen familites, and create a summary for each one that identifies the following criteria for each family:   

  • Control ID
  • Control Name
  • Vulnerability Provide a short paragraph in Word for each family describing the testing procedure that will mitigate the vulnerability. Example: Family - Identification and Authentication Control ID - IA-2 Control Name - Identification and Authentication (Organizational Users) Vulnerability - Illegal user access
