Project Target: Healthcare Industry. Objective: Research access control systems/implementations that are in place in hospitals (choose any hospital/s or healthcare provider/s). Review current literature (articles, white papers, books: use google scholar) relating to type of access control systems/framework that are in use to include documented issues from your sources.Focus: In sum, the focus of this project should be management or technical issues relating to access control systems in use for the chosen company/organization/agency. The focus could be a technical issue (framework in use, cloud provider, etc.) or a non-technical issue such as policy, continuity of operations, or administrative/management, to name a few. The group will identify the issue for this project by conducting initial research.My personal guidance and recommendation: The group will meet regularly and discuss what they have found during their individual (initial) research. A lead should be chosen to begin drafting an outline for follow-on research once an organization is identified for this study/project. You should be in constant communication with your group to avoid replication of work or research; this will delay work. The outline can also be used to assign team members their portion of the paper/research to write. Just some thoughts
Things to consider:Choose your sources wisely by staying within the focus of your paper.From your research, identify the access control systems/frameworks that are in use, and discuss the pros and cons. This discussion will be drawn from your personal knowledge (professional and/or academic experience)!What do the sources say about the implemented access control systems/frameworks worthy to include in your paper? (e.g. known issues with the technology being used, cost-effectiveness, training issues, management, etc.). This is an open-ended question, meaning, you should include any information the sources identify to be a problem.Do the sources identify specific weaknesses or other access control-related issues? Are the issues specifically related to the company/organization that is the focus of your project? Identify this/these issues and discuss how you would improve them. Please remember that issues could be technical or non-technical in nature (e.g. technology being used, implementation, or administration).Have you found evidence from your sources of assessment failures or risk management issues relating to access control mechanisms during your research? If so, discuss them.Have you found evidence from your sources of business continuity and/or disaster recovery issues relating to access controls (or the management thereof) during your research? If so, discuss them.Review the project evaluation rubric!
