Key Infosec Stakeholder Roles Discussion


When planning an InfoSec program, an organization is expected to specify for employees their behavior toward security and the security of the organization. The major stakeholders involved in the planning of InfoSec may differ depending on the type and size of the organization. Assuming you were to develop a new InfoSec program for your organization or one you are familiar with, discuss the major stakeholders that may be involved in this planning and the reasons why these stakeholders should be involved. Determine if these stakeholders would also be involved in IT strategic planning. How would these roles overlap between InfoSec strategic planning and IT strategic planning? After posting your initial response, please respond to two of your peers by the end of the module week.
