You are required to analyse the scenario given on page 3 and develop guidelines for an Issue-Specific Security Policy (ISSP) on the ‘Acceptable Encryption Policy’ for the organisation described in the scenario.

c Key Generation, Key agreement, and Authentication
d Violations of Policy
e Policy Review and Modification
f Limitations of Liability
Please note that you might need to make some assumptions about the organisation in order to write this report. These assumptions should match the information in the case study and not contradict the
objectives of the report. They should be incorporated in your report. To avoid loss of marks, do not make assumptions that are not relevant or contradictory, or will not be used in your report discussion.
Your discussion must be specific to the given case scenario and the discussion should be detailed with justification. Wherever appropriate please provide evidence of information (with proper referencing) to justify your argument.
Please refer to external resources as needed. Please use at least 5 relevant references.

Part B: Your reflection on completing this assessment may include (the word limit for part B is 500 words):
• how you attempted the task, methods used,
• any hurdle faced and how those were solved
• what you have learnt
• if you are asked to do this again, would you take a different approach? Support your answer with justification.
You are assessed on your ability to analyse the given scenario and prepare a report on the guidelines for the specified information security policy. The marking criteria for this assessment task are provided on page 4. You need to familiarise yourself with the marking criteria to ensure that you have addressed them when preparing the report for this assessment item.
Students must write the report themselves. You may be asked to prove that you have written the Report. You should keep evidence that you have written the Report yourself, for example, early drafts of your Report, and notes taken during the assignment.
ALL assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources) using TurnItIn. If you are found to have plagiarised material or if you have used someone else’s words without appropriate referencing, you will be penalised for plagiarism which could result in zero (0) marks for the whole assignment. If you falsify references/information you will also be penalised. In some circumstances, a more severe penalty may be imposed such as having a plagiarism incident raised. Please refer to CQUniversity’s policy and procedure on academic integrity for details.
Once the assessment is marked, the Unit Coordinator (or nominee) may request additional written information and/or an oral discussion to clarify the student’s understanding of the submitted work. Failure to comply and/or to demonstrate an understanding of the Report’s content could result in 0 marks for the Report.
Each student must upload his/her individual report through the COIT20263 Moodle unit website assessment block on or before the due date. Late submissions will incur a penalty as per the university’s Assessment Policy and Procedure.
