Topics for Network Security Research Paper and Presentation
The majority of the paper MUST address the highlighted topic below as it relates to Network Security. Specific hardware, software, service or systems may be used as short examples but should only represent a small portion of the total paper.
Select one or both of the following topics
1. How Analytics is used in Network Security analysis and remediation 2. How Network Security is applied to or impacts each level of the OSI model
• 7-10 references (at least 5 references) of which 2 must be Peer Reviewed.
o Include a Reference page at the end of the document for each reference used (ordered alphabetically by last name).
▪ Ensure each citation within the text is included on the reference page.
▪ Ensure each reference on the reference page has at least one citation within the text.
o Highlight in YELLOW the Peer-Reviewed works on the Reference page.
o Include all References as the last page of the Powerpoint Presentation (highlighting the Peer-Reviewed works in Yellow).
• 7-10 double-spaced pages (at least 5 pages), using 12-font Calibri-Body.

• Once the paper is completed, add an Overview to the start of the paper. The Overview must contain at least one Hypothesis (see Rubric)
and a Synopsis of what is contained in the paper.
o Include the Hypothesis, under the title, on the 1st page of the Powerpoint presentation.
NOTE: For this paper, a Hypothesis is a short statement you believe to be true based on the research you conducted. As an example, after doing
research, you might say: “Small businesses are less likely to provide adequate Network security”.
The quality and thoroughness of the paper, as defined in the rubric, will determine the grade assigned. Papers containing the minimum number
of references and/or minimum number of pages will most likely not earn a high grade.
