Incidents or Disasters in the Making. For this discussion, you are asked to analyze and then explain to a non-technical audience what an Advanced Persistent Threat is and provide 3 examples of recent APTs which adversely impacted businesses. News articles and security blogs are excellent places to start your research. (Hint: search for “news Advanced Persistent Threats”)
Your audience is the organization’s Council of Managers, a small group of very influential executives. Format your posting as talking points (3-5 paragraphs) that can be used at the next meeting of this group. Your narrative should support the Director of IT Security Service’s request for personnel to assist in testing the organization’s incident response plans. Why should these executives provide their staff to support this effort?
Remember to submit your discussion response to the Turn It In for Discussions assignment folder. See the forum instructions for more.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
