The second assignment requires you to apply research skills and information security management theory to the same organization that you chose for the first assignment, however, this time you will focus attention on Risk Management. Read the “Assignment Brief” section first to get a general idea, then complete the tasks detailed for the assignment.

This assignment aligns with the Course Learning Outcomes #5 – to analyse risk theories and how they are applied to the protection of assets, and #6 – reflect, and critically evaluate ethical issues that relate to the practice of information security. Like the first assignment, this one also aligns with the University’s Graduate Attributes in respect of acquiring research skills.

To prepare for this assignment, you need to pre-study chapter 8 “Risk Management: Identifying and Assessing Risk” in Whitman & Mattord, 4th edition. This chapter gives you a basic grounding in the subject of risk management.
