Therefore, assuring security will provide assurance in their transactions, and increase their profit margin, without interrupting current day to day operations. Here are few elements to assure data security: Firewall:A network security device that monitors all incoming and outgoing network traffic and decide to allow or block traffic based on PEP’s defined security rules (Cisco, 2019).Encryption:A security method that encodes information, so it can only be accessed or decrypted by valid user, with valid encryption key. This is a very vital element of the data security, that will assure PEP’s data and customer’s datais not getting into the wrong hands (Forcepoint, 2019).Network Security:The practice of preventing and protecting against unauthorized users, into corporate network. This is pg. 6

These requirements also protect PEP’s data is reliable, and compliant with PEP’s policies and regulations. There are a few security controls that need to be in place, in order to protect PEP’s policies, which are:Disaster Recovery:Detailed documented structured instructions, that are for responding unplanned incidents. This is very important so in the event of any unexpected activity, any eligible user can use as a reference to fix the issue, such as downtime (Rouse, 2017).Change Management: Detailed documented approach, to help with any transition or transformation to PEP’s organization, such employee departing or new hire (Rouse, 2017).Risk Management:Process of planning, organizing, leading, and control allactivities (Rouse, 2017).c)Performance Requirements:pg. 7
[Author name]11/17/19STAGE 2These requirements help define how the system should perform, and its functionality (Hulse, 2009). These requirements are used to supportPEP’s day to operations, and customers supply and demand:Response Time:This requirement is the elapsed time between any inquiry on a system, and the response to that inquiry. For PEP there should be no longer than 24-48 hours when the ordered is received, and when the informationis entered into the system (Techopedia, 2019).Workload:Amount of processing that a computer has been given to do, such as application programming running, and users connected interacting with the computer’s application at the same time (Rouse, 2006). PEP’s departments have multiple users that are accessing theirsystem at and giving time. So, it important to ensure that the system can handle the multiple workloads, suchas processing payments, creating reports, and receiving data from multiple users.Scalability- Provides PEP assurance that the new IT system is cable of functioning, and can handle change in size or volume, to meet their needs (Rouse, 2006).
