Discussion Boards

The course discussion boards are stored on Catalyst. There are four threads there. One of these is an open thread for any concerns you may have.

Security Reviews and Current Events

There are 2 security reviews and 2 current event summaries required per quarter. The first security review and first current event summary are due on November 4. The second pair is due December 2. The instructions for preparing these are given in the board on Catalyst, and you can also see the instructions in Slides 53 and 63 of Lecture 2. Remember, Security is a contact sport; you are allowed and even encouraged to work in groups of up to 3 students on these assignments. Students are encouraged to read and respond to their classmates' posts; activity on the forum can be included as part of your participation grade in the class.

Security in your everyday life

This is an optional, but fun activity, designed to help make you more aware of your surroundings and keep you in the 'security mindset'. The goal here is to share with the class security-related photos (anecdotes, videos, audio, etc.) that you come across in your life. [Be sure to follow all federal, state, and local laws.] Participation in this form is not mandatory, but counts toward your participation grade. Additionally, exceptional entries may be given extra credit.
