Assignment 1
Case Study
3pages
Select a recent, within ten years, cybersecurity case in which security broke down, or were security was breached.
Target, Equifax, Home Depot, Sony, the OPM are common topics, and one may chose one of these, but I would prefer if one found a less common, but equally challenging case to evaluate.
After your introduction, lay out the case, what happened, and why, and what the mitigation was and ultimate result.
Then lay out what you would have done differently to have better secured the information, and/or how you would have responded and mitigated the breach of security.
Your conclusion will be the specific lessons you want the reader to learn from your evaluation, and recommendations on how to prevent future situations from developing.
Then have a strong concluding paragraph.
The conclusion is the reason for most academic and real world papers, and is never just a single block of text, or single paragraph.
Use narrative paragraphs, not bullets, nor headers.
There is no length requirement, though this type of paper usually goes beyond five to seven pages.
Your topic, analysis, and conclusion drive the length of the paper, not some made up number by a professor.
Locate at least five to ten resources minimum outside sources from the government, cybersecurity industry, etc. as well.

Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
c. Develop the DRP Policy, including:
