For this assignment, you are to provide a topic for the course research paper required for week 7. I do not provide topic options for research papers. You have the option of selecting a topic of your choice as long as it is IT related. I review the topics and provide feedback. If a topic is “out of scope”, I will inform you of any issues. This is an Information Security course. There are many options provided in your book. However, a good example or option to choose is Cloud Technology or Cloud Security. It’s a hot ticket in the government sector right now. I appreciate anything related to IT security/Information Assurance/Cyber Security. You can also discuss new technology. The choice is yours.
