A plan or strategy for IA implementation including a framework
A complete risk mitigation strategy that completely outlines your plans to mitigate risks associated with operating in the 21st century workplace.
Select an accrediting body to ensure IA is not only a process but a part of organizational culture going forward
An incident response and disaster recovery plan in the event of intrusion and disaster
All sections should be clearly labeled and a separate section in each area specifically for justifications of your selection/proposal.
The proposal project IA must be in APA format 12-15 pages long (cover page and references not included). Provide at least 8 additional credible sources and using the 2 listed below; with a total of at least 10 sources.
