Overview: This case study analysis is the first of two formative tasks that will support your understanding of the key course concepts of human behaviors that could potentially cause a security threat. These case study analyses will inform your approach for the milestone tasks and the final project.
Prompt: Identify three current security breaches. Using presentation software, create a slide for each of the breaches. In addition to indicating when each breach occurred, address the following critical elements on each slide:
- The data that wascompromised
- What is being done to mitigate futureoccurrences
Guidelines for Submission: Include a title slide. Include at least one slide for each of the three breaches. Include all of the critical elements for each breach. On each slide, use the commenting feature to describe each breach in two to three paragraphs.
Instructor Feedback: This activity uses an integrated rubric in Blackboard. Students can view instructor feedback in the Grade Center. For more information, review these instructions.
