At this point in your academic career, you should be proficient at applying such a general approach to solving specific problems. Select and adapt such an approach with which you are most comfortable from your prior professional and academic experiences to apply to this assignment.

Suggested steps to the general systems approach to problem-solving are as follows:

  1. Define the problem
  2. Identify evaluation      criteria/measures of effectiveness
  3. Identify alternatives/solutions
  4. Evaluate/analyze alternatives      utilizing analytical techniques consistent with step 2 criteria/measures
  5. Select and display preferred      alternative(s)/solution(s) consistent with the analysis in step 4
  6. Implement and monitor step 5      solution(s)

Additionally, review specific readings regarding security controls, audits, inspections, risk assessment, and countermeasures. Utilizing an appropriate methodology for analysis (which may be adapted from the above 6 steps), identify a set of 8-10 recommendations toward solving the fraud issue of French bank Societe Generale.

There are three additional things to keep in mind:

Defining the problem or issue will require a data-gathering stage.

1. Problem-solving is not a once-through sequence of steps always performed in a specified order. It is full of iteration and feedback loops.

2. Finally, you will not be able to implement and monitor your recommendations in this assignment. Perhaps that means provisions for implementation and monitoring should be part of your evaluation criteria.

Your paper should include the following:

  • Identification and discussion      the policies, vulnerabilities, risks, and internal controls for the French      bank;
  • Evaluation of the weaknesses      and impact on secure bank operations;
  • Recommendation and discussion      of 8-10 security controls and countermeasures for mitigating problems in      and improving the bank’s security posture;
  • Discussion of the methods that organizations can use to effectively achieve the adoption and implementation of the security policies, controls, and countermeasures.

Prepare your paper to the following format:

· A single Word Document 5 – 7 pages (font size – Times New Roman 12)

· Single spaced with one-inch margins all around

· All citations and the reference list in the paper should be formatted in accordance with APA 6th edition (or later) guidelines

· References are NOT included in the page count
