You just received a memo from the Project Manager with updates and a request for a process flow diagram. Read the memo below.
Memo from the PM:
We have decided to buy space on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and maintain our own e-commerce applications and databases there. This was based partly on your recommendation and the recommendation of the other team members.
What does this mean for you?
We’ll need your part of the project to go into a Business Requirements Document for the project plan to be sent up to the CEO for final approval. The CIO and I will review your work, so please be detailed in your responses so that we can allocate resources appropriately.
Instructions
For this week, you will need to create a process flow diagram for the project plan, showing how you want things to go with the new system. You can build on previous design work you’ve done in this area or start from scratch.
You have all the Microsoft products available to you in the marketing department, so feel free to use any Microsoft product to create the process flow diagram. Visio is very popular among IT folks, so feel free to create your process flow diagram using Visio, but you can also use MS Word, PowerPoint, or whatever you’re comfortable with, as long as the output is a PDF or a Microsoft document.
Your process flow diagram should include each of the following elements:
Easy-to-read formatting, including a font size that is large enough to easily read, simple language that is easy to understand quickly, and a clearly visible title that identifies the process being diagrammed.
A clear start and end to the process flow. All items are in the proper sequence with arrows or other directional objects used to indicate that sequence. Flow is logical throughout.
Distinct shapes for each necessary action, identified clearly through a legend.
Take a look at the Example Process Flow Diagram [PDF] for reference.
In addition to the process flow diagram, you will also need to use the MS Word template to submit a written description of the diagram to ensure that the PM and any others reading the diagram will know what is being communicated. Your description, much like your diagram, will be specific to the process you are supporting in the project based on your area of expertise.
Cybersecurity: Access control, malware concerns, physical and logical access, forensic investigation, etc.

Directions: Be sure to make an electronic copy of your answer before submitting

Directions: Be sure to make an electronic copy of your answer before submitting it to Ashworth College for grading. Unless otherwise stated, answer in complete sentences, and be sure to use correct English spelling and grammar. Sources must be cited in APA format. Your response should be four (4) pages in length; refer to the “Assignment Format” link on the course homepage for specific format requirements.
In your course, turn to Lesson 8. Skim through it to refresh your memory. Next, carefully study and review the section titled “Measuring Technological Progress.”
Use your own words to write a short compare-and-contrast essay that defines and explains three distinct perspectives on the evolution of technology. As you write, imagine you are talking to a friend who has no knowledge of this topic. In short, write the way you speak, using a conversational tone. Also, try to alternate short sentences and longer sentences to make your writing more readable.
Be sure to create a title and cite yourself as the author. For example:
A Comparison of Three Perspectives on the Evolution of Technology
Mei Quoran
Your essay should include five paragraphs, as follows:
Paragraph 1 is your lead paragraph. It will contain an overview of what you have to say in comparing and contrasting the perspectives of Gerhard Lenski, Leslie White, and Alvin Toffler with respect to the evolution of technology.
Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4, are your body paragraphs.
In your essay, use paragraph 2 to describe the perspective of Gerhard Lenski.
In paragraph 3, you’ll write about the perspective of Leslie White.
In paragraph 4, you’ll describe and discuss the perspective of Alvin Toffler.
Paragraph 5 is your summary and conclusion. Here, you’ll compare the three perspectives to show how they are, or may be, similar. You’ll contrast the three perspectives to describe how they’re different. You’ll end this process–and your essay–by expressing your view as to which of these theorists (one or more) offer the most useful insights into the evolution of technology, in your opinion.
Use direct quotes from your reading to support your ideas, but don’t use too many. One to three such quotes should be your limit. This means that you must include citations and a reference page. Be sure to put a direct quote in quotation marks. For example: According to Smith, “Carbon dioxide is both our friend and our enemy.” Also, be sure to include a citation for any material you paraphrase.
Begin by writing a first publish. Then, edit and rework your material to make it clear and concise. After you have reached a final publish, proofread the essay one last time to locate and correct grammar and spelling errors.

“The readings attached challenge you to adopt a dramatically new perspective on

“The readings attached challenge you to adopt a dramatically new perspective on the human/technology relationship as a starting point for understanding conflict.”
– In a short paragraph or two – Is it necessary to adopt a perspective this theoretically removed in order to understand the concepts of security and conflict today? Why or why not?
– Your post should reflect that you have done the readings but not simply regurgitate the reading material.
***COURSE MATERIALS ARE ATTACHED TO THIS ORDER (4 ARTICLES/CHAPTERS). THIS IS A DISCUSSION POST SO PLEASE SPEAK IN FIRST PERSON NARRATIVE. PLEASE USE AS MANY SOURCES AS NEEDED IN MLA FORMAT***

Are you unique ?

The OPM incident has been linked to various elements, including Chinese hacking groups, the Chinese government, and many others. So, let us assume that there has been a certain amount of success in tracking down the actual hackers who committed the crime. You now get to investigate the various law, organizations, treaties, etc. that are going to be available to prosecute the hackers. Finally, can we make use of the technology of browser fingerprinting and other tools to identify the computers that may have been used for the attack? I want you to run a brief set of fingerprinting tests on your own computer and paste your results at the end of the assignment.
The following is the fingerprint statement:
Are you unique ?
Yes! You are unique among the 925749 fingerprints in our entire dataset.
The following informations reveal your OS, browser, browser version as well as your timezone and preferred language. Moreover, we show the proportion of users sharing the same elements.

Summarize the change and the process used to implement the change (one or two paragraphs maximum).

LEARNING FROM THE PAST ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
As leaders, you must be willing to learn from mistakes of the past. No one gets it right 100% of
the time, and with the increase in technology, that number is even smaller as complications
increase. You will learn that you are not alone in possible missteps so there is no reason to fear
the changes that come with technology. Search for an article discussing change in technology –
maybe the implementation of new hardware/software or just capabilities of a school, (possible
search criteria: “school implements new”). Research articles describing the implementation of
new technology. Feel free to look for specific implications of something you may be interested
in. There are numerous articles on using technology to motivate students and I encourage you in
this direction. Once you find a recent example, write a report on your findings. Write a summary
of your article describing the situation and the steps used to implement the technology. Then, put
yourself in the driver’s seat. Based on what we’ve learned so far, critique their approach. Was it
handled appropriately in your opinion? If you were leading the change, what would you do
differently?
To complete this assignment, you will:
? Find a recent example of the implementation of technology.
? Summarize the change and the process used to implement the change (one or two
paragraphs maximum).
? Critique the implementation based on the best practices you have learned.
? Describe the changes you would have made to make the implementation more successful.
Please use current APA format in citations. Minimum page requirements: 2 double-spaced pages.
