Thesis

Designing a Security Architecture for Sports Manufacturing Company “X”

Organizations often expand exponentially before realizing the need for security based on the many, well publicized breaches, incidents, and outages. This Semester-In-Residence project developed the security framework for a well-known international sports equipment manufacturer, Company “X”. This occurred during the period “X” was in the process of a major divestiture from parent company “Y”. The project involved assessing the policies and security architecture that had been provided by Company “Y” and developing a plan for new policies and security architecture once Company “Y” no longer provided the infrastructure and services. Requirements included information security policy review, security processes, security assessment, compliance, procurement, implementation, and management of security tools. The product developed for Company “X” was a designed, purchased, and implemented defense-in-depth program, from the network edge to the endpoints.
