Security and Compliance in the Cloud

Task and Mark Essential Information
This assignment requires you to configure, deploy and test a working virtual cloud-based system.
The assignment consists of two different elements:
1. (CW1): A group-based practical element that requires you to work in a team to develop a
network-based system. The weighting of this work is 50% of the overall module grade. The
assessment will be carried out via a 20-minute video submission and a 20-minute
presentation (15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes Q&A) for each group demonstrating
the developed system.

2. (CW2): An individual report of 2500 words must be written by every student, which is worth
50% of the overall module grade. That report needs to be submitted via TurnItIn by the
assignment deadline.
(CW1) Practical Element Brief
A new developing multinational automotive company has consulted your network solutions company to
build a network system that will host its online website and services, which will enable the company to
promote the products and customers to search for a car with their preferred specifications, order a car,
arrange a payment plan, etc. The requirements for the system are as follows:
1. Design the topology/layout of the system to be developed considering all the servers needed for
the support of the core business services.
2. Develop the network system configuring and deploying the servers properly
3. Apply testing and security analysis to the developed system
4. Apply Business Impact Analysis to the developed system and consider the respective legislation
Practical Element Information
During the practical/lab sessions you will be required to complete a set of workshops that will help you to
acquire the skills needed for the completion of the practical coursework (CW1). This practical coursework
covers the learning outcomes LO1, LO3, LO4 and LO5. The technical skills required to pass this element is
covered in those sessions. Your group work will be marked using the Practical Element grading rubric.
Finally, each team member will be peer-evaluated for his/her contribution to the practical task resulting in
the final individual mark (for each member), which will be an adjustment of the group mark based on the
outcome of the peer evaluation.
Details of the Practical Element
▪ Design (25%):
a. Produce the architecture of the network to be implemented. Discuss the network topology and
explain why this type of topology was used.
b. Explain which servers have been considered and why. Explain how the servers used support the
business services, information distribution, system security, etc.
c. Describe the features of the servers that are used to enhance the functioning and security of
the system.
▪ Development (25%):
a. Produce the system complying with the design provided in the previoustask.
b. Demonstrate the proper connectivity of the servers and the implementation of the firewall.
c. Demonstrate a proper level of system configuration, deployment and scalability.
▪ Security (25%):
a. Demonstrate the use of security testing applied to the developed system.
b. Propose solution for the security issues discovered and show how they mitigate the problems.
c. Show that different privileges and rights have been applied to the user accounts


▪ Business Impact Analysis and Legislation (25%):
a. Business Impact Analysis (12.5%):
Apply an exhaustive BIA to your system considering at least three different case scenarios,
which should be based on disruptions related to the network nature of the examined system
(e.g. network disruptions or threats considered).
b. Legal Consideration (12.5%):
i. Describe the current national and international legislation that should be considered for the
developed system.
ii. Provide thorough explanation of how the legislation considered is related to the security
requirements of this specific system.
