Threats & Countermeasures Project:
Identify and explain three “specific” 21st century security threats discussed “anywhere” in our text book. Secondly, identify and relate countermeasures (security strategies, tactics, countermeasures, etc.) to prevent and/or mitigate the specific threats.
Explain each of your three threats in three separate project sections (one for each threat). Each threat section of your project must be “concisely” “titled” with the name of the threat (e.g.,Insider Threats; Perimeter Threats; etc.). Following each threat section, a detailed and “titled” “countermeasures” “sub-section” must be included. Each countermeasure should be a third level sub-heading. For example, ABC Threat (heading), Countermeasures (sub-heading), and then each specific countermeasure (third level sub-heading).
Threat #1 – Title a specific “threat” (e.g., Insider Cyber Threats – do use threat #1 or Insider Cyber “Security” – “security” is not a threat; be concise and ensure “Threat is in the title). Do not use locations, vulnerabilities or some other type of general research topic. Ensure each threat is specific (e.g., employee theft threats, commercial robbery threats, airline terrorism threats, cargo theft threats, insider cyber threats, etc.) and “not” broad/general threats (e.g., internal threats, external threats, terrorism threats, transportation threats, cyber threats, etcSpecific Countermeasure (security strategy, tactic, etc. specific to the identified/discussed threatSpecific Countermeasure (continue for as many countermeasures you have identified)
Countermeasures (general introduction to your specific countermeasures to follow)
Specific Countermeasure (security strategy, tactic, etc. specific to the identified/discussed threat)
Specific Countermeasure (continue for as many countermeasures you have identified)
