Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Information security and privacy
Facebook, email, electronic commerce, and collaborative sites for both work and leisure are a normal part of our everyday computing activities. Personal information entered on these websites become partially owned by the sites themselves. Deleting items never really gets rid of them.
After reading this week’s course materials, describe what Internet users should know about one of the following topics:
- What should you know about website privacy?
- How do you know when an online transaction is secure?
- Why is Anti-spyware software important to my online security?
After your primary post, respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
