Smiths Security Ltd is a company that runs numerous Security businesses throughout Australia. Its head office is located within Sydney Metro. These businesses include Armoured Vehicles, Security Guards, Fire Monitoring Services, Alarm Monitoring, and a number of related businesses.

It currently has a data centre in each of the major cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth). The major data centre is in its head office in Sydney. The company has the following server infrastructure at each site:

  • 1 x Active Directory domain controller on Windows Server 2003
  • 1 x SQL Server 2003 database server on Windows Server 2003
  • 1 x Lotus Notes email Server
  • 1 x Windows Server 2003 Print Server
  • 1 x Windows Server 2003 running IIS Web Servers which connect to the SQL backend. 
  • 2 x Business Application Servers running custom software to manage their staff

This infrastructure has obviously not been updated for some time and Smiths Security IT Management Team is very concerned that an upgrading OS and Server Hardware is not worth it. The IT team is now considering moving some, or all, of their current infrastructure into a Cloud and updating some of their software (but not their business application servers). 

Smiths Security also has 5 monitoring centres (places where staff monitor alarms and take actions according to the type of alarm) around Australia. 

The company is considering the following strategic proposal:

  • They plan to retain their Sydney data centre for critical systems and data. This would entail updating their Active Directory and data storage infrastructure, moving all other infrastructure into the Cloud.
  • They wish to consolidate their monitoring centres to one location but are concerned about their Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity Plan (BCP) as well as their backup strategies especially for their monitoring centre.
  • They plan to replace all their staffs' PCs with Thin Clients utilising DaaS (Desktop as a Service) such as AWS Workspaces, VMware Horizon Cloud, or Citrix VDI with Azure.
  • They also plan to migrate their Web and SQL infrastructure to increase their flexibility and availability.

The Board of Smiths Security is contemplating this strategy as a way to increase the company’s flexibility and responsiveness. The Board also expects to achieve significant savings on the cost of maintaining their ICT infrastructure by closing their existing data centre. They appreciate that this would entail retraining for their existing ICT staff so that they can manage the new Cloud-based infrastructure.

Smiths Security has again approached you to advise them on this strategy. You have already advised Smiths Security that this strategic approach will mean that they will need to ultimately design and operate a “Hybrid Cloud” methodology, where part of their data centre is “on-premise” and another part in a Cloud.

Smiths Security also plans to run a Risk and Security Workshop to assess the risks, security issues and possible methods of control that will be required with this “Hybrid Cloud” approach. You will be required to organise, run and facilitate this workshop.


Your team has been engaged to provide a risk assessment for Smiths Security in their planned move to a Hybrid Cloud strategy.

Your team’s task is to prepare a report for Smiths Security that discusses the following:

1. Describe which Cloud architectures you would employ to assist Smiths Security to meet the Board’s strategy?

a) Describe each of the architectures that you would use, along with your reasons for deploying it.

b) Describe the benefits and issues that would be the result of your deployment of these architectures.

2. Describe the risks that you see associated with this Hybrid Cloud strategy especially considering DaaS implementation and their monitoring centre at one location. You should name and describe each risk that you identify, and then describe a possible control for the risk. This should be presented in a tabular form.

3. Describe the general Information Security steps and controls that you would recommend to the Board to secure the Hybrid Cloud. You will need to explain to the Board your reasons for recommending these particular security steps.

4. Discuss briefly what you would recommend should be included in Smiths Security’s BCP as a result of their adoption of a Hybrid Cloud and DaaS. You will need to consider, as a minimum, the issues of application resilience, backup and disaster recovery in a Hybrid Cloud environment.

5. Discuss the requirements that Smiths Security will need to consider in order to conduct remote server administration, resource management and SLA management for its proposed IaaS and PaaS instances (it may be useful to consider Morad and Dalbhanjan’s operational checklists for this section).

6. Smiths Security’s has decided on Amazon AWS Workspaces for their move to DaaS and want to begin the migration process, and test their strategy.

a) Describe the steps that you would include in the plan to migrate these services.

b) What are the critical points and issues that you see occurring at each of these steps? Explain why you see these points or issues as critical.
