Assessment 2: Case Study


You are working as a Systems Security Engineer at Peterson Security Solutions. You have been given
a project to design a System security for a new customer called The Great Northern Hotel Pty Ltd.
The Great Northern Hotel Pty Ltd is a 4-star luxury hotel and restaurant in Melbourne. They are running
this business from last 7 years and has seen a rapid client growth in last 7 years. The hotel has an
overall policy goal for the enterprise is to provide the customers with a high quality experience in staying
at the hotel, and protecting the hotel’s good reputation. The CEO is concerned that system security
eaches could undermine those enterprise objectives.
ently they are having 10 admin computers, 2 reception computers and 4 computers for
management. They also provide Wi-fi access to their customers. Their Wi-Fi is running on Wired
Equivalent privacy (WEP) protocol and they haven’t implemented any strong encryption for Wi-Fi
They have experienced a lot of attacks on their network in last few months and credit card details for
some of their customers has also been hacked. Clients are also complaining about identity theft and
login credentials being hacked. An information systems auditor engaged by the company has said that
threats to the hotel’s system can come from both hackers outside the organization, and disgruntled
employees within the organization, and that both threats need to be defended. The CEO is also
concerned that tech-savvy customers could be spying on other customer connections to the network,
as the hotel has many VIPs using their services.
The main users of the network are customers (WIFI access on a guest network), and employees (both
WIFI and bounded media access to a corporate network). The CEO would like to secure all these
interactions with the network if possible. Based on discussions with the information systems auditor,
the CEO rates the probability of employees violating security as low, the probability of eavesdropping
as medium, and the probability of hackers attempting to steal credit cards as high. The CEO also
elieves that risks are higher when there are more conference goers attending meetings in the hotel,
as they are unfamiliar with the hotel systems.

ently all the financial information and customer records are saved on server machine which is
unning Windows Server 2003. Windows server 2003 has already passed end of life and there is no
support provided by Microsoft for this server operating system.
Management of the hotel is wo
ied as they haven’t implemented any security system to protect their
IT assets and data. Being a reputed hotel in Melbourne they don’t want their client’s personal details
and credit card details to be lost. Management also wants to ensure that the threat identification and
isk management process has ongoing relevance as business conditions change
You as a Systems Security Engineer needs to prepare a detailed report on the cu
ent situation of the
organization including threats & potential risks to the present IT system.
In your security report, you need to identify the potential threats and risks. You are supposed to
document the human interaction with the system. You should identify appropriate controls and
procedures that needs to be implemented to make system more secure and less vulnerable to attacks.
General information
The report should be concise and well-structured e.g. using the provided report template. Excessive
iage should result in the students resubmitting the report
No handwritten assessments will be accepted.
Maximum of three students listed as authors of the report.
1. Evaluate the cu
ent system as per enterprise guidelines and procedures.
2. Conduct a risk analysis on the system and document the results.
3. Identify threats to the system and document your findings.
4. Identify and analyse human interactions with the system.
5. Conduct risk assessment on the cu
ent system to categorize risks.
6. Conduct risk assessment on human operations and interactions with the system.
7. Categorize risks based on risk assessments performed.
8. Match risk plans with risk categories.
9. Use risk categories to identify and plan resources.
10. Identify and describe effective controls to manage and monitor risk.

11. Create policies and procedures to manage user access of the system.
12. Identify and document training requirements for effective use of system policies and
procedures. You should also be prepared to conduct training e.g. a five minute oral
presentation to the trainer about one of these policies and procedures, e.g. the need to have
strong passwords for user authentication.
13. Identify high risk categories and times (e.g. is there any time in the business when risks are
greater than normal? ) and create a plan to monitor those identified categories.
14. Design a template to record system and network
15. Create a security plan and procedures for the system security.
16. Design and document security recovery plan.
17. Identify and document controls to minimise risks in human interaction with the system.
18. Identify security benchmarks from vendors, security specialists and organisational reviews.
19. Review risk analysis process based on identified security benchmarks.
20. Create a plan for system re-evaluation to uncover new threats and risks.
21. Describe how you would implement and manage security functions, such as a password policy
and audit log reviews, on a Windows Server 2012 system. You should provide what specific
features of Windows Server 2012 would be needed to implement these security functions.
