NEC The Data Theft at Target in A Hacking Incident Essay


Now that we have had an introduction to security protocols that will help reduce the risk of a security incident we are going to study security incidents.  Each student will select a recent security incident that had their data stolen by an outside attack, insider threat, or some other mechanism.  There are multiple examples that can be used, i.e., Target, Capital One, Home Depot, OPM, etc.  As you evaluate the incident you evaluate several components throughout the remainder of the course.  The assignment will have a couple of milestones over the course with a culmination in week 16 of our final evaluation.
