CSIA 360: Cybersecurity in Government Organizations
Paper #3: Compare / Contrast Two State Government IT Security Policies
Scenario:
Volunteers have been recruited to help state governments improve their cybersecurity
practices. The coordinating committee has decided that the first task these volunteers undertake will be
a comparative analysis which examines the strengths and weaknesses of existing IT Security Policies for
state governments (agencies and offices of the executive branch under the leadership of the state
governors). Since you volunteered early, you have your pick of any two states’ IT Security Policies from
the list published by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MSISAC). (See item #1
under Research.)
Research:
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
1. Select two state government IT Security Policies. Use the list at
https://msisac.cisecurity.org/state/ (if you encounter a broken link, you may search for that
state’s policy or choose a different state).
Download and review your selected state governments’ IT Security Policy documents.
Develop five or more points which are common across the two documents. (Similarities)
Identify and review at least three unique items in each document. (Differences)
Research best practices for IT Security and/or IT Security Policies for state governments. Here are
two sources which you may find helpful:
a. http://www.nascio.org/Portals/0/Publications/Documents/DeloitteNASCIOCybersecurityStudy_2014.pdf
b. http://www.nascio.org/Portals/0/Publications/Documents/NASCIOSecurityFrameworks.pdf
Using your research and your comparison of the two policy documents, develop an answer to the
question: Why should every state government have an IT security policy for state agencies and
offices under the state’s executive branch?
Write:
Write a five (5) to eight (8) page white paper in which you summarize your research and discuss
the similarities and differences between the two IT security policy documents. You should focus upon
clarity and conciseness more than length when determining what content to include in your paper. At a
minimum, your white paper must include the following:
1. An introduction or overview of IT Security Policies for the executive branch of state governments
(covering state agencies and offices in the executive branch including the governor’s office). Explain
the purpose of an IT security policy and how it is used. Answer the question: why should every state
in the nation have a comprehensive IT security policy for state agencies and offices? (Make sure that
you address the importance of such strategies to small, resource-poor states as well as to large or
wealthy states.)

2. A separate section in which you discuss the common principles and policy sections / statements
(similarities) found in both IT security policy documents.
3. A separate section in which you discuss the unique aspects of the first state’s IT security policy
document.
4. A separate section in which you discuss the unique aspects of the second state’s IT security policy
document.
5. A section in which you discuss your evaluation of which state government has the better of the two
IT security policy documents. You should also present best practice based recommendations for
improvements for both IT security policy documents. (Note: you may have different
recommendations for the individual policies depending upon the characteristics of each document.)
6. A separate section in which you summarize your research and recommendations.
Submit For Grading
Submit your white paper in MS Word format (.docx or .doc file) using the OPEN Data Assignment in your
assignment folder. (Attach the file.)
Additional Information
1. Your white paper should use standard terms and definitions for cybersecurity concepts. The
following sources are recommended:
a. ISACA Glossary http://www.isaca.org/pages/glossary.aspx
b. Guidelines on Security and Privacy in Public Cloud Computing
http://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/Legacy/SP/nistspecialpublication800-144.pdf
2. You are expected to credit your sources using in-text citations and reference list entries. Both your
citations and your reference list entries must comply with APA 6th edition Style requirements.
Failure to credit your sources will result in penalties as provided for under the university’s Academic
Integrity policy.
3. Use APA 6th edition style (formatting) for the organization and appearance of the MS Word
document that you submit to your assignment folder. This includes margins, section headings, and
consistent use of fonts (Times New Roman 12 in black), paragraph styles (first line indent by ½ inch),
and line spacing (double). Formatting requirements and examples are found under Course
Resources > APA Resources. Your file should contain both a title page and a separate References
page. Use page breaks to ensure that the title page and references page are separate from the body
of the paper.
4. You are expected to write grammatically correct English in every assignment that you submit for
grading. Do not turn in any work without (a) using spell check, (b) using grammar check, (c) verifying
that your punctuation is correct and (d) reviewing your work for correct word usage and correctly
structured sentences and paragraphs.
