Assignment 1: Designing FERPA Technical Safeguards

 

Imagine you are an Information Security consultant for a small  college registrar’s office consisting of the registrar and two assistant  registrars, two student workers, and one receptionist. The office is  physically located near several other office spaces. The assistant  registrars utilize mobile devices over a wireless network to access  student records, with the electronic student records being stored on a  server located in the building. Additionally, each registrar’s office  has a desktop computer that utilizes a wired network to access the  server and electronic student records. The receptionist station has a  desktop computer that is used to schedule appointments, but cannot  access student records. In 1974, Congress enacted the Family Educational  Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) to help protect the integrity of student  records. The college has hired you to ensure technical safeguards are  appropriately designed to preserve the integrity of the student records  maintained in the registrar’s office.
Write a three to five page paper in which you:

Analyze proper physical access control safeguards and provide sound recommendations to be employed in the registrar’s office.
Recommend the proper audit controls to be employed in the registrar’s office.
Suggest three logical access control methods to restrict  unauthorized entities from accessing sensitive information, and explain  why you suggested each method.
Analyze the means in which data moves within the organization and  identify techniques that may be used to provide transmission security  safeguards.
Use at least three quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with  one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA  or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional  instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the  student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date.  The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required  assignment page length.
