Capture The Flag
You work for a company that holds a Capture the Flag (CTF) competition once per year. In the past, competitions had at least 1000 people competing against one another. There are 100 challenges in the system ranging from general IT to cybersecurity. There is no way to know exactly how long it takes participants to perform a challenge; however, some investigations have determined between 30 seconds to 1 minute, on average. It is crucial that the system stays up during the competition. It is estimated that each year the number of participants will grow 10%. It has been decided that in the upcoming year, the system will be delivered to contestants from the Cloud as Software as a Service (SaaS) as opposed to be an on-premise system. The main reason for this is because last year a power outage occurred, and the system was not operational for 4 hours during the 72-hour event. Management doesn’t want that to happen again.
Your Director of IT asked you to use Azure and AWS as cloud providers for the CTF system. The CTF system was developed by Facebook, is open source, and runs on Ubuntu. You will also determine the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the two cloud providers (Azure and AWS). Your analysis should be done in report format examining the comparative evaluations of the two providers over a three-year time period.
Based on the Total Cost of Ownership analysis, your company will know which cloud provider to use. Knowing this, you will then perform a risk assessment by identifying the assets for the project, identifying the threats against the assets, and determining what security controls/solutions are needed. After the security solutions are determined, conduct Return on Security Investment for each security control. It is fine to make assumptions.
