Prior to developing an information security plan, it is important to understand and evaluate potential security risks before formulating prevention strategies. For this assignment, you will continue the planning process by adding the Risk Assessment section to the Information Security Assurance Implementation Plan. You will analyze and perform a risk assessment of the organization?s information systems. You will also discuss the importance of security in the design of information systems.

NETWORK SECURITY-CS653: WK2- Analysis of the Network
When it comes to IT security, you must do more than follow the examples of other companies, regardless of how successful they are. No two organizations will encounter the same problem. The best approach to providing the best level of security is to conduct a risk assessment of your organization,
identify what your assets are, what your threats are, and what the probability of the threats occurring may be. This analysis will allow you to create the network defense plan that is uniquely tailored to your organization and situation.
For this assignment, you will write the Risk Assessment section of 5?6 pages, and add it to the Network Security Plan document. Appropriate research should be conducted to support the development of your document, and assumptions may be made when necessary.
Update previous sections of your document based on feedback. (Will email separately)
Update the Table of Contents.
Update the date on the cover page.
