Ontemporary Issues Concerning Security Issues as A Profession
Project 3: Paper and Conference Discussion on Contemporary Issues Using News Articles
Using current news articles originating from newspapers, magazines, or the Internet, and at least one scholarly source (trade journal, industry paper, etc.), write a three to five page paper that identifies two contemporary issues concerning either security as a profession or a specific organizational problem.
This document must clearly define the issues identified in the selected news articles and how those issues relate to and/or impact security operations. Most importantly, the document must provide proposals of solutions to the issues and the measures required for successful implementation. The issues and solutions you and your classmates identify will be the topic of discussion in a class conference.
