Your final project is based on the concepts that have been presented throughout this course and will focus on the critical
the infrastructure you identified in the Unit IV Topic Selection assignment writing.
In this project, you will develop a threat assessment, analyze the threats, and propose a resiliency plan with critical infrastructure protection (CIP) strategies to mitigate and respond to threats to facilities and networks.
Your project must, at a minimum, include the components listed below.
Identify the specific critical infrastructure you selected in Unit IV. Determine the sector with which the infrastructure is
associated, and explain why CIP efforts are needed.
Develop a threat assessment from an all-hazards perspective for the critical infrastructure. You may use any existing
assessment tools, such as the mission, symbolism, history, accessibility, recognizability, population, and proximity
(MSHARPP) worksheet or the criticality, accessibility, recuperability, vulnerability, effect on the population, and recognizability (CARVER) matrix, which were introduced in Unit IV. Examples of the MSHARPP worksheet and CARVER matrix can be found in the Unit IV Nongraded Learning Activity. You may also create your own threat assessment tool. Your assessment must be able to meet the criteria below.
Assess natural, technological, and manmade threats or potential hazards that could impact critical infrastructure across both physical and digital domains. Determine any cybersecurity threats or issues.
Analyze the assessed threats to facilities and networks supporting the infrastructure.
Based on your analysis, outline a resiliency plan that incorporates strategies to mitigate threats to facilities and networks.
The plan must identify, at a minimum, the following components:
strategic objectives and action items for changes needed or for improved resiliency; exercise or training needed to strengthen readiness and response efforts; and any necessary partnerships, agency collaboration, or information sharing that can support the resiliency plan.
