Background
This assessment item coverschapters 1-12. Using the organisation from your last two assessment
items, you are now addressing controlling risk, protection mechanisms, personnel and security, law
and ethics specifically. Provide the organisation with the necessary guidelines for implementation.
Your solution will incorporate specific aspects from all the chapters as you are building your
argument for this requirement.
You are also required to review the PRT Network Monitor that you can find on this web site
http://www.paessler.com/prtg. This web site provides you with the executable which you need to
download. It also provides you with a lot of information on how to use it.The organisation has
decided to use this software for now, and you are requested to try out installation and use of this
monitor. While the web site has documentation available (videos, help, explanations, etc.), the
organisation needs you to trial this monitor and to report any issues and limitations.
Write a report in accordance to the recommendations of the links on the study desk. The word-
count limit for the introduction, body and conclusion of this report is set at about 3000 words. Use
five (5) or more resources for your citing and referencing in Harvard style.
Submission requirements
