Submit your Term Paper in a Word file for grading.
Specific Instructions for the Term Paper:
Include a title page for your own paper. This includes the “Running Head” in the page header, the title of your paper, and your name. If you don’t know how to edit a header in Word, Google for instructions on how to edit a header in the version of Word you are using and follow the instructions. Also add the university and class info as well as the date authoring the paper.
Write a 150-250 word abstract for your the paper (on p. 2 of the Term Paper). The abstract should be a brief summary of your paper.
Next you need a Table of contents page.
Next you will start the paper. The 8-12 page starts counting from this page. All prior pages are pages for “metadata” information about the paper – and not part of the body of the paper.
For each major section of the paper, you will need to add sub-headings. You may need as many subheading as needed, but each section must have a minimum of three sub-headings. Be sure to be descriiptive in your sub-heading names, so that the content following the subheading is informative.
More info on the body of the paper: Write the introductory paragraphs of your term paper (following the table of contents page) underneath the title of your paper. The introductory paragraphs should be at least one page long. These paragraphs should provide the reader with an overview of what you are covering. Your full 8-12 page term paper is due at the end of Week 6. In addition to the 8-12 pages of the paper itself, you must include a title page (abstract and table of contents pages) and a references page. Your title page must include the title of your paper, the date, the name of this course, your name, and your instructor’s name, as well as the university info and the date paper was written.
Your paper must be on the topic of this assignment in computer forensics. Remember to explain the types of software you would use to complete the case. You may use the cases noted in the book for guidance or may use one of your own.
The last section of your paper is the list of references in APA Style format. Name the header “References” then list the references in alphabetical order of the authors’ last name. Include a minimum of 6-10 outside sources cited and referenced in the paper. Your references page must be written in APA citation style.
Rename your Term Paper to ISSC621_LastnameFirstname_TermPaper2.doc(x) (e.g., ISSC621_JohnSmith_TermPaper2.docx) and submit it to the Assignments area in the classroom.
NOTE: I WILL NOT ACCEPT A PAPER WITH AN ORIGINALITY REPORT OVER 10% OR OVER 1% FROM A SINGLE SOURCE. THIS WILL RESULT IN A GRADE OF 0.
NOTE: This assignment has the classroom TII (TurnItIn) feature turned on. This means that once your assignment has been submitted to this area, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin.com database to generate an Originality Report with an Originality Index. It takes anywhere from a minute to 24 hours (or longer) for this report to be generated and returned to the classroom assignment area. Check often to see if the report has been generated.
The acceptable criteria for the Originality Index in this course is a maximum of 10%. Which means 10% of the submitted paper has been matched with sources in the database and hence is not original to the student’s work. A 0% match index is ideal and should be aimed for. In addition to the 10% maximum overall match allowance, each of your cited sources should not exceed 1%. The bibliography section of your paper is excluded from the match index by your professor after the report has been generated by filtering this portion in the report. However, each cited source must not exceed 1%.

How do worldviews and values influence the vulnerability perspective?

This is a discussion assignment answer the 3 questions below in two pages with as much detail as possible. Use the articles by William Donner and Kenneth Hewitt as your starting points and then add three more sources of your choice. Please look at the discussion rubric and be sure to meet all the criteria for “excellent”. You need to include sources/citations within your response.
Please read “Disaster Risk and Vulnerability: The Role and Impact of Population and Society” by William Donner.
https://www.prb.org/resources/disaster-risk/
Please Read “Environmental Disasters in social Context” by Kenneth Hewitt (Attached below)
1. There has been research into social vulnerabilities for years but the field of emergency management is newer. As the knowledge is shared among disciplines and between research areas ‘dominant views’ have formed. Donner discusses the “vulnerability” perspective in disasters, which is rapidly emerging as a dominant view in the field. What is meant by this “vulnerability” perspective view? How is it different from the other dominant views of disasters/hazards? How do worldviews and values influence the vulnerability perspective?
2. What are social factors and how is it important in EM decision-making to be aware of social factors and their influence within a community?
3. Preventive and Precautionary Approaches. What are Hewitt’s main points when referring to the following terms or phrases and implications for EM and EM planning (share a few examples either from your readings and/or additional sources/experiences): (a) Vulnerabilities can change dramatically with habitat changes (b) Social Justice (c) Capacity and (d) Resilience?

Identify a specific critical infrastructure.

Identify a specific critical infrastructure. Examples would be a nuclear plant (e.g., Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station), a utility system (e.g., Duke Energy), or a critical network (e.g., Metro New York 9-1-1 system or Amtrak), to name a few. Determine the sector with which the infrastructure is associated and why CIP efforts are needed.
Note that in the rubric for this assignment, the creativity and thought put into your selection is worth a substantial portion of your grade. You are encouraged to choose a local infrastructure with which you are familiar or have a personal or professional vested interest in to gain the most benefit from this assignment. Choosing an infrastructure with complex factors and a broad public impact will give you greater opportunity to apply knowledge learned in this course. Choosing a smaller or limited infrastructure (e.g., your local shopping mall) is not recommended.
Briefly identify any known or expected threats (natural, technological, and manmade events or disasters) that could impact the selected critical infrastructure and would require specific resiliency plan actions.
Identify at least three resources that can meet the following criteria:
assist in developing a threat assessment for the critical infrastructure, and
identify strategies to implement for safer facilities and networks.

Why is warning intelligence so hard?

Prepare a 125-word initial post for each of the following questions. Please reference/cite as necessary using APA style with citation in the text.
Intelligence in the National Security Enterprise by Roger Z. George will need to be cited in the response.
2 citations for each question.
1. George makes a case that strategic intelligence is useful. Others say that strategic intelligence is only useful if someone reads it. Why wouldn’t decision and policy makers use/read strategic intelligence? In what way might such a circumstance be the fault of how strategic intelligence is produced?
2. Why is warning intelligence so hard? Given the examples George provides of warning successes and failures, why do you agree, or disagree, with all of the key lessons and challenges which he identifies?
