  2. CW2 Quality Function Deployment CW2

    (Source; System requirements analysis By Jeffrey O. Grady) The process of Requirements Analysis is important to a software project because if there is not enough attention given to this process, the system may not deliver on what it was expected to do. It would also be a waste of money and resources to spend money on a system that does not meet the requirements of an organisation.

  3. Defining the scope of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) in a company

    The expressions came from ISO 27001. "The principle behind ISMS is that an organisation should design, implement and maintain a clear set of policies, processes and systems to manage risks to its information assets, therefore ensuring acceptable levels of information security risk." ISMS should be competent in the future and should adapt to changes whether they are internal or external and therefore should integrate the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle method which will keep it up to date.

Not only does an information system store and display information for its user, but also helps to generate as well as send and receive data.

  14. What are the legal requirements for ensuring information security relating to business organizations? How can these legal requirements for ensuring information security be met in typical modern companies? Explain your answers with reference to practical examples from your own knowledge and experience wherever possible.

For example the compliance requirements for a company in the health sector or financial sector in the United States or Europe may be different for each of those companies. The company then reduces it into a policy framework that is implementable within the company.
