Wk 2 – Apply: Challenges for Fixing Vulnerabilities

Assignment Content

  1. Review the “Challenges for Fixing Vulnerabilities” Team activity.

    Create a table comparing 10 of the vulnerabilities, threats, and risks for the real-world security incident discussed by the class (Verizon DBR) , along with related vulnerabilities that may have contributed to the security incident.
    Include the following as at least 3 of the comparisons used in the table:

    • How was the vulnerability detected?
    • What protocol was attacked?
    • What steps were taken to resolve the vulnerability?
    • Write a 1- to 2-page narrative explaining trends shown from the table.

      ** Waring this assignment has two parts **

      Part 1 – Table 
      Part 2 – Narrative 

      Narrative checklist:

    1. The reflection must be 350 – 700 words (about 1-2 pages but I will be looking at word count) 
    2. Use the bullets or key points in the instructions and create corresponding heading and sub headers. This way it will be obvious that you hit the key points 
    3. Include at least one references that are properly cited 
    4. Any images must have a caption and referenced in the paper. 
    5. Combine the screenshots and the remainder of the assignment into one APA formatted document. If you submit the assignment in multiple parts you will lose points   
    6. Follow APA format (fonts, etc) – For details on the formatting see the UOP library tab.
