Write a five (5) to eight
(8) page white paper in which you summarize your research and discuss the
similarities and differences between the two guidance documents. You should
focus upon clarity and conciseness more than length when determining what
content to include in your paper. At a minimum, your white paper must include
the following:
1.  An
introduction or overview of national
cybersecurity strategies. Explain the purpose of a national cybersecurity
strategy and how it is used. Answer the question: why should every nation have
a cybersecurity strategy? (Make sure that you address the importance of such
strategies to small, resource-poor nations as well as to wealthy, developed
2.  A
separate section in which you discuss the common principles and guidelines
(similarities) found in both guidance documents (ENISA & CTO).
3.  A
separate section in which you discuss the unique aspects of the CTO principles
and guidelines for national cybersecurity strategies.
4.  A
separate section in which you discuss the unique aspects of the ENISA
principles and guidelines for national cybersecurity strategies.
A section in which you present your
recommendations to the competition team as to the approach (next steps) they
should take in further refining their answer to the competition question: what is the best approach for developing a national
cybersecurity strategy?
Additional Information
1.  Your
white paper should use standard terms and definitions for cybersecurity
concepts. The following sources are recommended:
