Imagine that you are in charge of architecting and overseeing the development of an online course management system for a large university with a
considerable number of online students. The software that is going to be deployed is similar to what students, instructors, and administrators experience
when using Blackboard or software similar in design.
The online course management system is now through the requirements phase of development; however, the university has requested that a communication
feature be included in the system. This requirement, along with the additional nonfunctional requirements associated with this addition, was not part of the
initial project specifications.
Write a 5–6 page paper in which you:
Evaluate the security and privacy risks of introducing a communication feature this late into the life cycle.
Recommend ways to mitigate the security and privacy risks caused by adding communication features this late in the life cycle. Justify your response.
Evaluate security and privacy mechanisms that should exist in both the existing and additional requirements of this system.
Use three (3) sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at
least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library, or review library guides.
This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left-hand
