A Systematic Approach Research Assignment
Phases of Ethical Hacking
Analyze the different phases of a hacking attack and explain why a systematic approach is necessary for a successful attack.
For this assignment, please prepare a 10-12 PowerPoint slide presentation using independent research on an organization that you are very familiar with (is it your current place of employment?) or plan to find an organization that interests you that has had challenges in the past with security.
As you research this for management consider:
- How do you present what the phases are?
- Why is each phase important?
- What tasks are performed in each phase?
- How does the previous phase compliment the next phase culminating in the final stage in terms they will understand, appreciate, and possibly act upon?
*Include a cover slide, introductory slide, conclusion slide, and references slide. All of these slides will not count in your required total of slides.
A reminder about graduate-level learning:
Graduate-level student learning will involve more of a focus on “diving in deeper” to the content. Expanding on the initial topic includes both written and oral presentation on the field of study experience, in combination with independent research and course content, will be essential elements of your graduate studies.
To have an experience isn’t enough to establish learning – you need to intentionally and thoughtfully reflect upon the experience, considering what you learned from it in order to take something away from it!
