The lwa of evidence

•How important are witnesses with regard to the prosecution’s case during a trial?

Cyber Security

1. Identify a recent malicious security breach that caused significant losses for a firm, either tangible or in terms of damage to reputation. Describe what that the organization did to recover from the attack.
In responding to other students’ posts, identify other possible damages inflicted by the breach and/or other steps the firm could take to regain the confidence of the affected stakeholders.
Refer to the Discussion Rubric for directions on completing these discussions.

2. Read and Comment on at least two of your classmates’ Milestone One submissions (posted in Module Two) by identifying at least two examples of potential cyber attacks. Base your comments on the information in the article “IT’s 9 Biggest Security Threats.” The company descriptions in the milestone submissions should provide clues about what types of data would be especially attractive and therefore represent high risk in terms of security threats. For example, a retail chain would have concerns about customer credit card numbers being stolen from point-of-sale databases.

When responding to classmates’ examples of cyber attacks, describe what measures would be put in place to prevent or minimize the risk of those types of attacks.

IT 241- Milestone 1

The company that will be discussed in the final project is AMTRAK, a branch of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation. Amtrak is a passenger railroad service that provides travel near and far, across the United States. The service is used by citizens of all walks of life, from business men and women to families who are traveling on vacation. There is even an Auto Train that can transport vehicles to desired destinations. As a part of the railroad industry, Amtrak was created by congress in 1970 to take over failing intercity passenger rail services (National Railroad Passenger Corporation, 2018). In fiscal year 2017, Amtrak earned approximately 3.3 billion dollars in revenue. Amtrak is a federally chartered corporation with the Federal Government as the majority stockholder. The corporation also receives funds from 18 states as part of the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act. Amtrak, today, operates over 300 trains a day, at speeds of 150mph along the right of way.

Amtrak employs over 20,000 workers and is affiliated with many companies that perform tasks as contractors. Companies can register and create and account on a website associated with Amtrak to apply and become contractors. There are a series of courses that are necessary to acquire permission to work on Amtrak property, and obtain badging for identification as a contractor (Amtrak Contractor, 2010).

Amtrak trains travel over 30 different routes to over 500 destinations in 46 states across America and Canada. The Northeast Corridor is considered the most traveled region, from New York to Virginia. It is considered the nation’s only high speed intercity passenger rail provider (National Railroad Passenger Corporation, 2018).

The desired group of people that should be present for the pitch starts with the CEO of the corporation, Richard Anderson. It would be very useful to have the board of directors hear the pitch as well, because they have tremendous influence on future projects. Some notable names that should be at this meeting are the vice chairman of the board, Jeffrey Moreland, and Chairman of the board, Anthony Coscia.

Major findings of early research into the study of genetics in criminology

What are some of the major findings of early research into the study of genetics in criminology? What does this suggest about human behavior in relation to social and physical environments?

The nature-nurture debate.

Write a one page (double-spaced) essay in response to each of the following questions

Question 1: Define nature and nurture. Describe the nature-nurture debate. Use both nature and nurture factors to explain why people become alcoholics (see pp. 81-82 in your textbook). Do you think that intelligence is mostly inherited or the result of the environment? Why? Question 2: How would you foster the growth of a child’s brain development during the first two years of life? Make sure to describe brain growth in infancy. Specifically, discuss some activities that you could do with the child that would facilitate brain growth. Why would these activities facilitate brain growth? Question 3: Imagine that you are parenting an eight-year-old child. Which parenting style would you use (see pp. 211-213 in your textbook)? Why? How would you discipline the child (see pp. 221-225 in your textbook for some types of discipline)? Would you use some of the ways to discipline a child discussed in the textbook or would you find other ways to redirect a child’s behavior? Question 4: Describe three things that you learned from the course material (including the textbook) that would be particularly useful for every parent to know. Why would this information be useful to parents?

Reducing Intergroup Conflict

Research suggests a number of strategies to reduce intergroup conflict. To further explore these strategies, in addition to readings in your text, read the following article paying particular attention to pages 588 to 593. Hewstone, M., Rubin, M., & Willis, H. (2002). Intergroup bias. Annual Review of Psychology, 53, 575-604.

You are a counselor in a detention center for delinquent adolescent boys. Your current project is to devise a way to reduce intergroup conflict that has been escalating between the boys at the center, many of whom were active in local gangs.

Discuss the different strategies to reduce intergroup conflict found in your text and the Hewstone article.
Looking back at the course discuss 2 to 3 additional concepts that could be applied in helping a person overcome these negative attitudes and behaviors.
Keeping these strategies and concepts in mind, what activities and/or programs can you create that will help these boys overcome this conflict and learn to work together, respect each other, and come to see each other’s differences as valuable. Briefly summarize each program/strategy in 2 to 3 sentences each in preparation for part 2 of this project.
Answer the above points in a 3- to 4-page paper. Your paper should be double-spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font with normal one-inch margins, written in APA style, and free of typographical and grammatical errors. It should include a title page with a running head, an abstract, and a reference page.

Baby boomers,Generation x and Millenials

Create a T-Chart that illustrates technology’s effect on accommodations for adult learners with disabilities. Include references to support the information. The current workplace environment comprises three generations working together: Baby Boomers, Generation “X”, and Millennials. Review the following scenario: Our organization’s leaders of XYZ Company have concluded that our supervisors do not have the required skills to properly manage their people. We believe our current supervisors’ toolbox–such as web links of useful management information, and links to self-help apps, and so on–is not giving them the information they need (or at least maybe not in a format or layout that delivers the message). Our organization’s leaders recently surveyed our employees and discovered that 85% of our employees are unhappy with how they are supervised. Complete the Learning Styles and Strategies Chart (below) using the concept of differentiated instruction to. • Describe and reflect on the different learners and learning styles at XYZ Company based on research about the four generations in the workplace. • Identify the various learning styles of the generations and at least five learning strategies for each one of the learning styles. • Additionally, describe how you might differentiate instruction for the learning strategies you identify. Write a 525- to 700-word memo in which you recommend two learning strategies for each of the three generations’ learning styles.
