ITS 4910 - Information Trends/Research and Design Project

Module 7

This lesson presents some background on the seventh week. Objectives important to this lesson:

  1. What is this week about?
  2. Current assignments


We still have the assignments from last week that will be due in week 8. Remember to complete and submit them if you have not already done so.

This week the course provides you with a template for a brief risk assessment of the network you are proposing to the client. The assignment, due next week, is to list data in all three columns of the provided template for six separate risks. Not sure what a risk is? Consider the lesson for week 2 of course ITS 4210. Several of you took that class and may recall it. Risk can take many forms. Each leads to an unfortunate result if we do not protect our network from what could happen.

There is no rubric specific to this assignment. Examine the example line in the template. Using that as inspiration, submit six other lines for other risks that the network can be vulnerable to.


  1. Complete the assignment and class discussion made in this module.
  2. Review notes from previous classes related to the topics in the bulleted list above.
