SKILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Reading

  • Interprets complex technical and operational documentation to determine and confirm job requirements

Oral communication

  • Uses listening and questioning techniques to articulate complex concepts and requirements using industry language in cloud computing and risk environment

Self-management

  • Demonstrates a sophisticated knowledge of principles, concepts, language and practices associated with the cloud and digital world and uses them to troubleshoot and understand the uses and potential of new technology

Planning and organising

  • Uses a broad range of strategies to evaluate and resolve risk events in cloud and technical environment and demonstrates the knowledge that design choices will influence the security of virtually stored information

Problem solving

  • Uses a mix of intuitive and formal processes to identify key information and issues, evaluate alternative strategies, anticipate consequences and consider implementation issues and contingencies
  • Uses knowledge of context to address common threats in the cloud and technical environment

Unit Mapping Information

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 6.0.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, and to:

  • develop and evaluate a cloud disaster recovery plan that includes at least three major risk events.

In the course of the above, the candidate must:

  • determine likelihood and impact of risk event to assist in the development of one cloud disaster recovery plan
  • document disaster recovery plan and ways the plan reaches Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) targets.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit. This includes knowledge of:

  • risk environments in cloud/ICT environment
  • data analysis methodologies to determine risk environment
  • disaster recovery techniques applicable to cloud environments
  • ISO270001, ISO27002 and ISO 27031 standards
  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) standards and techniques
  • techniques and methods to monitor and create alerts in cloud environments.

Assessment Conditions

Skills in this unit must be demonstrated in a workplace or simulated environment where the conditions are typical of those in a working environment in this industry.

This includes access to:

  • data required to assess current and future risk events in specified environment
  • legislation applicable to risk type
  • reporting standards for documenting and communicating disaster recovery plan.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
