Information Systems homework help. Short Research Paper #2
Prepare a short research paper of approximately five (5) pages, double-spaced, exclusive of cover, title page, table of contents, and bibliography. Your paper must use APA formatting (including in-line citations in the proper APA format) with the exception that tables and figures can be inserted at the appropriate location rather than added at the end. Submit the paper in your assignment folder as a Word attachment with the following file name:
(For example, Smith.doc)
If you are unable to virus check your document, please submit as an rtf file rather than as a doc file. Please do not use macros in your document.
For this assignment, address the following topic:
One hundred years ago, Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren warned us that, “Numerous mechanical devices threaten to make good the prediction that ‘what is whispered in the closet shall be proclaimed from the housetops.’” Cryptography is an enabling technology for self-help privacy. Conversely, cryptography can be used to conceal criminal conspiracies and activities, including espionage. How have computers changed the ways in which we have to keep certain information private? What new threats do computer systems and networks pose to personal privacy? Conversely, what threats are enabled or enhanced by computer systems and networks? How does cryptography help or hinder protection of privacy and public safety? What policies are needed and appropriate in a networked world regarding the use of cryptography?
Use of Turnitin
This Short Paper 2 assignment will be reviewed using Turnitin, a software tool embedded in the online classroom to support the development and assessment of academic writing, including ensuring the authenticity of student work through a Similarity Report that highlights any matching areas in your paper found in another submitted paper in the Turnitin repository using a range from 0% to 100%.
The use of Turnitin in this class is different than how it may have been used in your other classes in that there is no need to create a separate account. You only need to submit your assignment within the classroom. Shortly after you submit your assignment you will receive helpful feedback to improve your writing from within the Turnitin software tool.
You can submit your paper to Turnitin multiple times before the assignment due date. Once you submit your assignment to the Assignment folder, your paper will be submitted automatically to Turnitin generating a Similarity Report. When a Similarity Report is available for viewing, a similarity score percentage will be made available that can be accessed from the Assignment folder by selecting the Submitted link located under “Completion Status” or by clicking the View History button. NOTE: It may take a few moment for the report to be available.
If you have any questions about the use of Turnitin for your assignments, please reach out to your instructor directly via the in-class messenger or email. If you are experiencing any difficulty accessing the Similarity Report, please visit the Turnitin support site.
Remember that you will not use your account at Turnitin.com for this course; the tool is already embedded in this assignment folder.
