Sample Cybersecurity Profile (System Security Plan) for HHS

Project description
Project 3: Sample Cybersecurity Profile (System Security Plan) for HHS (Department of Human and Health Services)

Every organization must create a cybersecurity profile (system security plan (SSP)) for all of its major and minor information systems. The cybersecurity profile documents the current and planned controls for the system and addresses security concerns that may affect the system’s operating environment. The cybersecurity profile includes security categorizations and security controls, and is included in the certification and accreditation package. For this project, you will create a sample cybersecurity profile describing the security posture of your selected organization.

Learning Objectives

After completing this project, students will be able to

Select and incorporate appropriate management, technical, and operational security controls into a system security plan.

Integrate and evaluate management, technical, and operational controls in the context of an information security program.

Develop a sample System Security Plan for an information system.


Your sample cybersecurity profile should be at least five full pages, double spaced, 1-inch margins, in New Times Roman 12-pitch font, with a cover page (name, course number, date, title of paper) and a reference page. The cover page and reference page are not included in the five-page minimum. Papers not meeting the five full-page minimum will lose points. You must have at least three sources, correctly formatted per APA guidelines. Submit your research paper to the appropriate TurnItIn assignment area by the due date.

Detailed Description of Learning Activity

Read NIST Special Publication 800-53 Rev 4 Guide for Assessing the Security Controls in Federal Information Systems and Organizations, Building Effective Security Assessment Plans.
Review the sample System Security Plan template provided by your instructor.
Select one management, one technical, and one operational control that apply to your selected organization (i.e., Risk AssessmentRA).
Describe each control. Include why these controls are required.
For each management, technical, and operational control, select two family controls (Vulnerability ScanningRA-5).
Describe each family control, state the implementation status as it relates to your selected organization’s security program, and describe how your selected organization implements the control.
Write your sample cybersecurity profile. At a minimum, the profile should include
an Introduction that includes the purpose of your paper and introduces security profiles as they relate to your selected organization
an Analysis section that includes Items 36 above
a Conclusion that summarizes what you wrote
Use spell and grammar check before submitting. It is also a good idea to have someone else read your paper. You should also review the grading rubric below to ensure that you have all the graded components.
