Assignment 3.1
This assignment is worth 50 points.

Read through the Data Breach Report links above. This might take a little while, and you may want to make notes to yourself while reading. Look at the data for all three years and provide a summary of at least five major trends identified over the last three years. Include in your posting your opinion regarding at least 3 of the trends. For example, did the number of viruses rise? Fall? Why?

You still need outside references, so you may want to investigate and determine whether the stated trends are reported by others, or provide more information on those trends.

This assignment is worth 50 points; 25 points for your original posting, and 25 points for participation.

If possible, search your company's publicly available corporate documentation and find the mission statement, vision statement, key values, or all three. If you are not currently employed, use Bellevue University as the source. Once you find the documents, determine if any of them include references to information security. If not, should they?

Minimum Posting Requirements: You must post at least five messages to get credit for participation. The first message is your original posting, due by Wed. At least two of the other messages must be responses to other student original postings. This is a pass/fail type of grade. If you meet the minimum requirements you get the points. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, you'll get no points for participation. Messages must be posted on more than one day. Don't wait until the last minute!
