This assignment consists of a research analysis paper with a minimum six full pages of content, double-spaced. This page count does not include a title page, graphics, or the references/bibliography page(s), which are also required in accordance with Chicago. The source material should result primarily from self-led external research of scholarly articles. In addition, you may use the course-required reading materials. It is a requirement that you use at least 6 scholarly sources in researching and writing this assignment. Topic: Espionage exists in many forms. Compare and contrast human intelligence espionage versus technical espionage (imagery, communications, electronics, cybercollection, etc.). Here are are a few questions to prompt your thinking. But you should develop your own measures and present them in your paper. What are the strengths and limitations of each, what types of information can only be collected by human espionage versus technical espionage, what are the organizational differences in how we conduct human versus technical espionage, what are the costs invested in human versus technical espionage, what are the problems in managing the information we collect by human espionage versus technical espionage, etc. You must use facts and examples to bear out your evaluation. Include real-life cases (with specific dates, places, names, outcomes, effects, etc.). You must conduct research beyond what is in the readings in the class. You are expected to have at least 6 outside reliable sources (journals, government reports and studies, verified public information, etc.).

I will also send the thesis statement and the outline that was already created You will be required to write one term paper this semester. The specifications are as follows: You must write a 5-8 page term paper on a topic of your choice related to cybercrime (ALL TOPICS MUST BE APPROVED). Some examples would include, how to avoid being a victim of cybercrime, the laws surrounding cybercrime, a recent incident related to cybercrime or pick an individual cybercrime and discuss the impact this crime has on society. Please write the term paper in a Word document and then upload it for grading. Your term paper outline is due at the end of Week 2. Your term paper is due at the end of Week 8. In addition to the 5-8 pages of the paper itself, you must include a title page and a reference page. Your title page must include the title of your paper, the date, the name of the course, your name, and your instructor’s name. Your reference page must be written in APA citation style, Arial or Time New Roman styles, 12-point font. Page margins Top, Bottom, Left Side, and Right Side = 1 inch, with reasonable accommodation being made for special situations. Your paper must be in your own words, representing original work. Paraphrases of others’ work must include attributions to the authors. Limit quotations to an average of no more than 3-5 lines, and use quotations sparingly. It is always better to write the information in your own words than to directly quote. When submitting the paper, it will automatically run through Turnitin for review. PAPERS WITH AN ORIGINALITY REPORT FROM TURNITIN OVER 15% OR OVER 2% FROM A SINGLE SOURCE WILL RESULT IN A ZERO GRADE. PER THE STUDENT HANDBOOK, YOU CANNOT SUBMIT A PAPER THAT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED IN ANOTHER COURSE.
First, select a newer scholarly journal article (no older than 2015) relevant to the course regarding the US national response to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or the psychological impact of an WMD attack on the population. Then conduct an article review of that article. It must be related to the course or course materials. The intent is for students to do some external research away from the provided references and find an Article in the AMU/APUS Library. Students should search the library’s online databases, such as ProQuest, EbscoHost, and others, to find scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. Additionally, the review of the journal article is an evaluation of the article’s strengths, weaknesses, and validity. It is used to inform of the article’s value through your explanation, interpretation, and analysis. As you do this, ask the major questions that are central to the review process: 1. What is the purpose of this article? 2. Why is it important to investigate or examine the subject of the article? 3. How are the authors carrying out the task? Are their methods and comments appropriate and adequate to the task? 4. What do they claim to have found out? Are the findings clearly stated? 5. How does this advance knowledge in the field? Hint: These would make really good section titles for your paper. Your work should consist of: Introduction (this will have a well-defined purpose statement in your intro paragraph that provides guidance to the reader about what you are going to cover in your paper) Body (feel free to use sub-headings if necessary) Conclusion (this wraps up the key points of your work and brings your paper to a logical conclusion) Technical Requirements Your paper must be at a minimum of 5 pages (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit). Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content. Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space. Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework. Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc. All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
Instructions: Cybersecurity Policies Without Borders Unlike countries, the Internet is not confined to specific national borders or geopolitical boundaries defying traditional governance. Perform research in the CSU Online Library and the Internet, and answer the following questions: Who can make the laws applicable to cyberspace and cybersecurity? What laws apply once cybercrime crosses national and international boundaries? Why are they important? Who creates policy and enforces these laws? Provide examples within your paper. Your paper should be three to five pages in length and in APA format.
Overview: Read the assignment material for the week. Read Parts II and III–Chapters 10 – 20 of “What is a Disaster” by Perry & Quarantelli (eds.). Assignment: Provide an approximate 1500-word document analyzing important concepts in the readings. Ensure you apply the discussion tenets from the contributors to your work including the work of Barton, Boin, Buckle, Smith, Stallings, Perry, and Quarantelli. Assume that you are writing for an uninformed reader that knows nothing about the topic and has not read what you read. Provide an introduction that gives the background of the resource that you are reviewing, so the reader will understand what they’re reading and why. Include the following topics in the discussion: – Discuss the relationship between disaster and stress including the difference between individual and collective stress, and why is it important? – Discuss Stallings theses; analyze and discuss how various contributors add and detract from his work? Which criticisms are valid and which not? – Provide an analysis of the discussions throughout the readings (Barton, Boin, Buckle, Smith, Stallings, Perry, and Quarantelli). – Discuss how Stallings work informs the future research that is still required? What would be the value of that research?
Turnitin™ enabledThis assignment will be submitted to Turnitin™. Instructions You will prepare and submit an annotated Webography outlining seven (7) Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) resource/response/counter-proliferation websites. Attached are the following documents to assist you in being set up for success for this assignment: 1. Document titled “What is a Webography?” 2. A generic Webography example titled “Webography Example” that will give you a good overview of what a complete Webography looks like. 3. A template example titled “Webography WMD Example” that will give you a glimpse to the start of what yours should look like. Additional Guidance/Tips: The websites may be federal, state, local, commercial, or private Don’t forget that you are reviewing website – do not pick documents on website, that will not meet the intent of the assignment Catch the reader’s attention with dynamic photos (don’t forget to cite under them to give credit if they are not from the specific website you are reviewing. For example, on the cover page, you might use a picture you randomly found on the internet — make sure you cite to give credit where you got the picture) When you use pictures in your document, don’t forget to compress them (this is an option under “Picture Tools” and select “Compress Pictures” and uncheck “Apply only to this picture” in order to compress all the pictures in your document. Also select “E-mail (96ppi)” for best way to upload your work (note the steps may be different depending on what version of Word you are using) Don’t just tell what the selected website is about — explain what the strengths and weaknesses are that you identified Don’t forget the Table of Contents Don’t forget the Introduction — tell the reader what you are going to cover Don’t forget the Conclusion — tell the reader the key points of what you told them Finding the unique websites can make the assignment more interesting – this takes some effort. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box Don’t cut and paste from the website — put things in your own words. If you summarize the website material, then I would not expect to see a citation as I will equate that you are relating the material to the website you are reviewing If you use a direct material, then it is expected that you cite correctly and use quotation marks and the appropriate citation (look in the Lesson area of the course if you need help with APA citing style). You will have an extra page at the end of your Assignment that is a Reference List (and needs to be in APA style). It will include all citations for your web pages and any addition references that you use. Don’t forget your APA requirements, i.e. Running Head, parenthetical citations, References page, etc. Technical Requirements Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space. Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework. Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc. All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
