Security Architecture and Engineering Requirements

The graduate designs technical specifications based on an organization’s security requirements.


As technology companies continue to move business services to the cloud, many companies are finding a need to upgrade the technological infrastructure. When implementing new architecture, IT companies will consult with IT security firms to identify current vulnerabilities in the system and plan how to avoid those vulnerabilities in the new information system.

For this task, you will use the attached “Healthy Body Wellness Center Case Study,” “Healthy Body Wellness Center Security Assessment Report,” and the “Business Requirements Document Template” to analyze, assess, and prioritize existing threats to the current architecture and design technical specifications to address identified threats.SCENARIOYou are the newly hired LAN administration and security manager at Healthy Body Wellness Center (HBWC). The HBWC includes the Office of Grants Giveaway (OGG), a growing department responsible for distributing hospital research grants.

The HBWC currently relies on a local area network (LAN), but plans to expand their services and hire more employees this year. It is evident the current cybersecurity architecture is limited and unable to meet current needs. In addition, HBWC’s cybersecurity architecture will need to transition to a wide area network (WAN).

Using the attached “Healthy Body Wellness Center Case Study” and “Healthy Body Wellness Center Security Assessment Report,” conduct a security analysis of HBWC’s current technologies and applications and identify threats to the company’s existing architecture. You will use the findings from your analysis to complete the attached “Business Requirements Document Template.”

Use the Business Requirements Document (BRD) template (attached) to record your responses for each aspect of the document in the “Business Requirements” section. 


Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 5% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. Use the report provided when submitting your task as a guide.

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .docx, .pdf, .ppt).


Analyze HBWC’s existing architecture using the attached “Healthy Body Wellness Center Case Study” and “Healthy Body Wellness Center Security Assessment Report.” Consider common security needs and functionalities necessary to meet the needs of the target network as part of your analysis. Record all responses in the appropriate section of the attached “Business Requirements Document Template.”

A.    Introduction – Summarize each aspect of the project summary, project scope, and system perspective based on the attached “Healthy Body Wellness Center Case Study” and “Healthy Body Wellness Company Security Assessment Report.” Use the “Introduction” of the attached “Business Requirements Document Template” to record your responses.

B.    Business Process Overview – Describe the current business processes at HBWC and the proposed processes, including the interactions between systems and various business units. Include visual process flow diagrams to further illustrate the processes the new product will replace or enhance. Use the “Business Process Overview” section of the attached “Business Requirements Document Template” to record your responses for each aspect.

C.    Business Requirements – Record the business requirements for the project, categorized by both priority and area of functionality addressing the needs from the “Healthy Body Wellness Center Case Study” and “Healthy Body Wellness Center Security Assessment Report.” Provide functional and nonfunctional requirements that can be followed throughout the project for the recorded business requirements. 

D.    Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

E.    Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
