I need assistance with a discussion board assignment. It is due by Wednesday, 2/10. The similarity score must be below 20%. Please include references if needed. I have attached the assignment requirements. Thanksunit_1_db___it_audit.docxScenario
Peak View Sound Sources is a public company based in Denver, Colorado and is focused on providing digital media
and Web sites to music companies and musicians through the Mountain and West Coast regions. The company
has a solid reputation and is starting to get some national and worldwide attention, with new prospective
companies wanting to take advantage of the quality services they have seen on other existing Web sites.
Your company has been hired to assist Peak View Sound Sources (PVSS) to ascertain the security posture of the
company’s Information Systems resources and services. You are heading the team of auditors tasked to perform
the audit and assessment.
You enter the company offices of PVSS and begin your analysis of the environment and situation.
Initial analysis has allowed you to determine that the company is made up of the following divisions:

Corporate Management and Support Staff: This organization contains the executive management,
human resources, and accounting teams. All company decisions are directed from the management team.
Information Technology: This team manages the networks, servers, Web sites, and desktop environments
for the company. The team has a perception of being difficult to work with, as they are slow to adopt new
technology and slow to implement new offerings. The reality is that the team has resources and wants to
uptake the newest and greatest technology, but they spend most of their time putting out fires and
reacting to issues.
Media Content and Design: This team is in charge of working with the record companies and musicians to
create the Web Sites and implement the product offerings that are sold.
Sales and Marketing: This team works with the musicians and record companies to offer and sell the
services of PVSS.
There is a concern about the security of the infrastructure with respect to the ability to protect the copyrighted
material that PVSS is given to host, because a single incident several years ago took place in which an entire new
CD was released prematurely via the Internet. Although PVSS was not directly linked to the leak, there are
suspicions surrounding PVSS.
Assignment Deliverables
As you continue your analysis, you see that the Information Technology (IT) department has developed several
guidelines and procedures about how various systems should be considered and set up, but this is internal only to
the IT department. Every time a new machine is set up and deployed, within a month, the configuration is

Explain why you think the use of these guidelines and procedures is not sufficient and may not solve the
problem. Consider how a company-wide policy program could help the situation.
As you begin to prepare your game plan to conduct an Information Security Audit, talk about why you
think this current situation makes it difficult to identify the controls that need to be examined.
If you were performing this security audit, with which regulations would you want to ensure that PVSS
complies? Why?
