During this study, the requirements of the communications plan were inscribed. As we proceed, it displays a visual diagram. It lists the members and schedules of meetings regularly. Below is a chart that labels the role of members, delivery methods, media, topics to be discussed and the schedule. The chart is reviewed and agreed upon by a steering committee consisting of different members throughout the organization such as human resource, resource management, information security, communications, incident management, logistics, legal, and other departments who play a part in the success of the plan.

CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE PROTECTION 4 According to the author (Jena, B., 2010), she suggests the key to a successful risk assessment plan is to determine how to analyze and manage risk. The strategy to successfully managing risks is aligned with organizational goals and objectives. The National Infrastructure Protection Plan begins with an inventory of assets. This is done by first determining the classification of the most critical systems. This will lay out the boundaries or guidelines for the protection of the assets. Identifying the system owner for the assets is critical for accountability purposes. Federal and state government among other agencies will usually play a vital role. After assets have been identified and assigned an owner, you will identify residual risks. This is based on vulnerability, threat, or a business impact analysis. By use of the business impact analysis, this enables your team to prioritize risk. Of course, you’ll apply the stricter risks based on the classification levels. There should be periodic testing performed in the form of a structured walk through, parallel, scenario-based, preparedness, or full-testing methods. Another point is to devise a business continuity plan. There must always be alternate sites in case of environmental or natural disasters. NIPP has several processes and outlines to perform the necessary testing. Next, you implement a protective program or strategies. There are several methods for risk management actions. Most risk management activities are developed in the form of activities, initiatives, or reporting formats.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
