Final Project

The final project for this course consists of two case studies related to cybersecurity and the use of

social networking and home computer use. Please review the case studies and respond using the

guidelines provided below.

Case Study 1: Securing your home computer

You just purchased a brand new computer for your home environment. It comes with the latest

operating system, Internet connectivity and all accessories to complete your home office and school

activities. You also have an Internet Service Provider where you can easily use the existing network to

connect to the Internet and to perform some online banking.

Describe the steps you plan to go through to ensure this new computer system remains as secure as

possible. Be sure to discuss the details of firewall settings you plan to implement, browser privacy and

security settings, and recommended software (e.g., Anti-virus and others) you will install. Also, describe

your password strength policy you plan to adopt, and what you envision to do to ensure your online

banking site is encrypted and uses the proper certificates.

Discussion of operating system patches and application updates should also be included. As you discuss

these steps, be sure to justify your decisions bringing in possible issues if these steps are not followed.

You can discuss this for a specific type of computer (e.g. MAC or PC) to make the scenario more

appropriate for your environment.

Case Study 2: Guidance for a family member using social networking sites.

A family member, who just turned 13, wants to join Facebook, create a Twitter account and start texting

his friends on a regular basis. For the purpose of this paper, let us assume you are willing to allow your

family to participate in these social networking activities and the family member has agreed to use your

advice to protect his or her privacy and security while participating in these social networking activities.

Describe the specific guidance and rules that your family member must adhere to for this activity to

move forward. Be sure to provide specific settings for Facebook and Twitter as well as any guidance for

texting with friends. Be sure to discuss how to detect, prevent and report issues such as cyber bullying,

identity theft, and child predatory behavior. Be sure to justify your decisions bringing in possible issues if

the guidance you provided is not followed
