Taking six of the topics you have studied in the course, discuss how you have applied or plan to apply the principles in your personal or professional digital life. How are you using the principles you have learned about to practically secure your devices/data or minimise the impact of an attack? If you do suffer an attack, how is the impact minimised? How do you plan to expand on your learning and stay up to date with new threats?

How-To Guide

The Written Assignment represents 60% of the overall course grade.

Instructions

The Written Assignment essay should be completed at the conclusion of the course, once all sessions have been completed. The submission date is approximately two weeks after the final session of the course; please check the course details for the exact date.

The goal of the essay is to demonstrate how you are thinking about putting course concepts, models, tools and practices in your own context to demonstrate the course learning outcomes:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of and apply key (fundamental) concepts and principles in network application and mobile
  • Identify security threats to, and weaknesses of, network solutions and deployments— both external and
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the evolution of the internet, cryptography and authentication.
  • Analyse the capabilities of network protection, threat remediation solutions and managing
  • Define and enforce risk assessment, compliance, auditing and policy
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental concepts of penetration testing and ethical
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of digital forensics and opensource intelligence.

 

The essay should contain approximately 3,000 words. The title is “Applying Cybersecurity Principles in My Personal and Professional Life”.
