- Contrast the advantages and disadvantages of using a multilayered approach to securing information system resources.
- Explain how each advantage and disadvantage you identified in the first point impacts budget, usability, and the environment’s attack surface.
- Think of three questions you’d like to ask other students and add these to the end of your thread.
- The questions must be taken from material you read in Chapter 1 or 2, and each question should start a discussion topic.
- You’re not trying to test each other, but you are trying to start a discussion.
- Finally, go to three other students’ threads and post comments, answering at least one of their questions.
- For EACH comment you post, use the 3CQ approach (described above.)
- When someone asks you a question, answer it!
The discussions in this class exist to simulate face-to-face discussions. To reach that goal, we will adhere to the 3CQ model. After posting each thread, you will post at least 3 comments on other students’ threads, and each comment must conform to the 3CQ model (Compliment, Comment, Connect, Question). This model encourages discussions that extend class learning and participation.
Here is a description of the 3CQ model:
1. Compliment – Start off positive. Compliment the person on something specific you have read or observed in the person’s blog post. For example:
- Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I really liked …
2. Comment – Comment on something relevant and meaningful about what the person wrote. Be specific! Remember your comment might not always be agreement. You can “politely” disagree. For example:
- I agree with you about …
- I respect your opinion, but I think …
3. Connect – Connect with something the person wrote (Text-to-Self, Text-to-Text, Text-to-World). Explain your connection with details giving your audience a clear idea of what you’re talking about by using sensory details. For example:
- I can connect with you about …
- I once read a story about …
- I had the same thing happen to me…
4. Question – Ask a specific question about something written or the writer. Keep the conversation going!
