Keeping the communications infrastructure secure from attack but still making it

Keeping the communications infrastructure secure from attack but still making it available to those who need it is a constant struggle. Consider the balance between infrastructure availability versus infrastructure security. Specifically with regard to the insider threat, what can individuals and organizations do to mitigate the impact of the insider threat to the critical communications infrastructure?

Pick two critical infrastructures to discuss in the discussion board (the two I chose are listed below).
Water and Wastewater Systems Sector &
Transportation Systems Sector
Answer the following for the sector you are focusing on for the discussion board.
Discussion Questions:
1. Briefly discuss, in your own words, why critical infrastructure protection, security and resilience is vital to the U.S. public confidence when considering the Nation’s safety, prosperity, and your well-being?
2. In your own words, construct an overview of the critical information sector you choose for this discussion.
3. Examine at least two, preferably more, of the following:
• Unique aspects as they relate to national security
• Risks/threats/hazards/vulnerabilities related to national security
• Potential countermeasures/mitigations related to continuity of operations
• Minimizing disruption and improving first responder safety
• Cross-sector dependencies/interdependencies
4. Give your opinion on how a physical attack, a cyber event, or a natural disaster could impact the critical infrastructure.
Do not include quotes in your posting since if you were in a class talking aloud, you likely would not be using direct quotes; instead, as necessary, paraphrase what you need to convey. You need to show me good critical thinking skills and not quotes written by others. Formulating your own thoughts from analyzing new information and studying established work is what we need for successful experts of the future. You must include at least one source per paragraph and thus include it in your reference section as best as you can (hint – not just a URL).

Prepare a 2-3 page reflection paper (double spaced, APA format, NOT including title page and reference list) on the concept/principle of “collaborative”, addressing the following questions.

On the one hand, government officials and industry analysts say that cyber-warfare is a real and present danger. One the other hand, there is a lot of money to be made by overstating the threat, then selling security solutions to nervous organizations.
The lecture this week described two main reasons to attack the communications infrastructure – to damage the communications infrastructure itself, or to use it as a means to attack other systems. Consider who the attackers might be, what their goals are, and what means they might use to attack critical systems using the Internet. What do you consider to be the greatest cybersecurity threat to critical infrastructure systems today?

On February 17, 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure extending Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act for three months. This, along with two other provisions of the Act, were set to expire at the end of February 2011, but are now extended for three additional months while Congress considers whether or not to extend these provisions further, make them permanent, or revoke them.
You are working for a non-partisan think tank and have been asked to present a paper to Congress during their deliberation of Section 215. Write a summary of your position on this section of the USA PATRIOT Act and defend your conclusions with specific examples

What is the feasibility that the same technology will be used in a terrorist or lone-wolf attack in the United States?
For this assignment, you will read and review an article that attempts to answer that very question. Click the link provided to access the article, and read pages 2-17 of the PDF.
Hughes, M., & Hess, J. (2016). An assessment of lone wolves using explosive-laden consumer drones in the United States. Global Security and Intelligence Studies, 2(1), 62-80. Retrieved from https://apus.libguides.com/ld.php?content_id=41237096
After reading the article, write a review that addresses, at a minimum, the following areas:
Give a brief overview of the article and the study’s purpose.
Explain lone-wolf terrorism in the United States today. How have lone-wolf terrorists begun to integrate technology such as drone usage into their plans to orchestrate attacks in the United States?
Discuss why the use of drones by terrorist groups or lone-wolf terrorists is expected to increase in the future.
Discuss the defense mechanisms that can be used to prevent an attack by unmanned aerial vehicles.
After reviewing this article, do you believe that drones could be used to attack first responders at the scene of a minor or major incident response? What are the motives?
The authors conclude with several suggestions for future research in this area. Which area do you feel is most critical and should be prioritized? Explain your opinion.

In 200 words, please answer the following questions:
A.)
Suppose you are interested in finding out if exposure to white, nationalist propaganda memes affects support for extreme right wing groups in St. Louis Missouri. Create a quasi experimental and true experimental research design to explore this. Your design should include what your population is and the threats to external validity.
B.)
If I were interested in getting feedback on this class, and commissioned you to create a survey for that I could administer, how would you do it? Create a 5 question survey to evaluate this class, Research Methods. Think about question wording, but also keep in mind validity–we want a well rounded survey that will produce results that will truthfully measure the value and effectiveness of this course introducing students to the methods found in international relations and national security studies . How would you administer it?
