Module 2 – Case
Information Security Domains: (D1) Access Control and (D2) Administration
There are two parts to this Case Assignment.
Part 1: Answer the self-test multiple choice questions at the end of Chapters 1 and 2. Compare your answers to the answer key at the end of the
chapters. Using the Answers and Explanation section at the end of the book, review any questions that you missed or were uncertain of the
answer. Write one paragraph summarizing your results. Describe what questions you missed in addition to any that you found interesting,
challenging, or surprising.
Part 2: At the end of Chapter 2 you will see a section titled “Exam Objectives Fast Track.” Select three of the objective areas that you find
the most interesting. Using an Internet search engine and Trident Online Library, find one highly relevant journal or industry-related article
for each of the objective areas you selected. For each of the three articles, provide a 250- to 300-word (one page) summary and critique. Base
your analysis on comparisons and contrasts to the course material, what you have learned from the book, and personal experience. Clearly
organize your paper to indicate each objective area you selected, the name and source location of the article, and respective critique.
Use information from the modular background materials and case assignment narrative as well as any quality resources you can find via the online
libraries or Internet.
