For this assignment, we will focus on the various tools and techniques available to the security professional in order to prepare a security vulnerability assessment.
Assess your residence, or one occupied by a relative or friend, for every security vulnerability that you see. Remember, do not assume criminals will not notice minor weaknesses.
During your assessment, focus on
- the neighborhood and general area, and
- at least four of the following:
- Fences or Walls
- Motion Sensors
Explain why you believe your five focus areas are or are not potential vulnerabilities.
Then, discuss what you think could be done to reduce identified vulnerabilities.
For this assignment, you are required to prepare a report of 3–5 pages (excluding title page and reference page), and post it in the respective Dropbox for this week.
Remember to include at least two authoritative references. They must be cited within the paper as well as listed on a reference page. See the APA citation tutorial in the Course Syllabus.
