These documents should be organized and readable, but are not polished reports.

|Project Part 2||Infrastructure Research A
Submit a draft of (1) which policy framework(s) will be followed for the project and (2) DoD-compliant policies, standards, and controls that affect the User, Workstation, LAN, and LAN-to-WAN Domains.
|Project Part 3||Infrastructure Research B
Submit a bulleted list of DoD-compliant policies, standards, and controls that affect the WAN, Remote Access, and System/Application Domains.
|Project Part 4||Final Report
Submit the final report of your class project.
Note:Â Your instructor may require that this project be completed in groups. If so, select a team leader and hold weekly team meetings as a group to be sure the work is proceeding on schedule.
You are a security professional for Blue Stripe Tech, an IT services provider with approximately 400 employees. Blue Stripe Tech partners with industry leaders to provide storage, networking, virtualization, and cybersecurity to clients.
Blue Stripe Tech recently won a large DoD contract, which will add 30 percent to the revenue of the organization. It is a high-priority, high-visibility project. Blue Stripe Tech will be allowed to make its own budget, project timeline, and tollgate decisions.
As a security professional for Blue Stripe Tech, you are responsible for developing security policies for this project. These policies are required to meet DoD standards for delivery of IT technology services to the U.S. Air Force Cyber Security Center (AFCSC), a DoD agency.
To do this, you must develop DoD-approved policies, standards, and control descriptions for your IT infrastructure (see the â€œTasksâ€ section in this document). The policies you create must pass DoD-based requirements. Currently, your organization does not have any DoD contracts and thus has no DoD-compliant security policies, standards, or controls in place.
Blue Stripe Tech’s computing environment includes the following:
12 servers running the latest edition of Microsoft Server, providing the following:
Active Directory (AD)
Domain Name System (DNS)
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) application (Oracle)
A research and development (R&D) engineering network segment for testing, separate from the production environment
Microsoft Exchange Server for email
Cloud-based secure web gateway (web security, data loss protection, next-generation firewall, cloud application security, advanced threat protection)
Two Linux servers running Apache Server to host your website
400 PCs/laptops running Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft 365 office applications, and other productivity tools
Develop a list of compliance laws required for DoD contracts.
Determine which policy framework(s) will be used for this project.
List controls placed on domains in the IT infrastructure.
List required standards for common devices, categorized by IT domain.
Develop DoD-compliant policies for the organizationâ€™s IT infrastructure.
Describe the policies, standards, and controls that would make the organization DoD compliant.
Develop a high-level deployment plan for implementation of these polices, standards, and controls.
Write a professional report that includes all of the above content-related items and citations for all sources.
Â· Format: Microsoft Word (or compatible)
Â· Font: Arial, size 12, double-space
Â· Citation style: Your schoolâ€™s preferred style guide
Â· Length of draft research documents: 2â€“4 pages
Â· Length of final report: 14â€“18 pages
