(and can include Safety, Hardware, Software, Risk Assessment and/or Policies/Procedures)
Using the topic above, write a research paper which includes between 5 and 10 References/Cited-Works (a majority dated 2015 or newer) of which 2 must be Peer-Reviewed. Highlight the Peer-Reviewed works (in Yellow) on the Reference/Works-Cited last page.
Once the paper is completed, add an Overview/Executive Summary to the start of the paper. The Overview must contain at least one Hypothesis (see Rubric) and a Synopsis of what is contained in the paper. For this paper, a Hypothesis is a statement you believe to be true based on the research you conducted. As an example: “Small businesses are less likely to provide adequate physical security”.
The quality and thoroughness of the paper, as defined in the rubric, will determine the grade assigned. Papers containing the minimum number of references and/or minimum number of pages will most likely not earn a high grade.
