Capstone Project: Machine Learning Techniques for Cybersecurity Defense Name Instructor Course Date Abstract Machine learning is a computer term that was coined in the field of computing in the mid-20th century as the ability of computers to learn on their own. Though the concept was not that exposed and applied it was until the tremendous growth of the internet in the late 20th century and the 21st century that machine learning began taking a new shape. The concept which is also closely related to artificial intelligent robotics neural networks and deep learning concepts of computing has changed become a mandatory requirement to ensure safety privacy consistency security and efficiency in computing. The most important development and transformation on the applicability of machine learning has emerged or rather amplified from the beginning of 21st century especially due to the internet growth and new invention in the cyber world.

Welcome to the Final Week of the course. For the Final Capstone Project assignment, Please see below. Assignment Instructions: Complete your Capstone Project paper by submitting a project based on previous research and coursework that you have completed in Cybersecurity or on a Cybersecurity topic that peaks your interest. Your project should incorporate your previously submitted Capstone Project Topic paper and needs to be closely related to at least one of the course objectives (listed below for your convenience). Your Capstone Project should add value to the Cybersecurity practice and should be able to used by others to further your research on the subject matter. REQUIREMENTS: 30 - 40 Pages in length in APA format (not including a cover page and reference section) covering all eight course objectives listed below. Papers need to be double spaced and in 12 point times new roman font Cover Page Abstract Introduction Review of Literature Findings and Recommendations Conclusion Reference Section (you will need at least 20 references) MISCELLANEOUS: Use current and real world data to make your points, not just the textbook. Your references should not be more than 5 years old. Your Capstone Project Topic assignment is due by Sunday not later than 11:55 p.m. Eastern time. COURSE OBJECTIVES: CO-1: Examine the various aspects of cybersecurity including the relationship between cyber defense, cyber operations, cyber exploitations, cyber intelligence, cybercrime, Cyberlaw within Federal and State Laws CO-2: Deconstruct the processes and goals of cyber forensics investigations including the importance of search warrants and chain of custody in a forensic investigation of computer related crimes CO-3: Prepare a plan to manage functions that encompass overseeing a program or technical aspect of a security program at a high level ensuring currency with changing risk and threat environments. CO-4: Prepare a plan to design functions that encompass scoping a program or developing procedures, processes, and architectures that guide work execution at the program and/or system level. CO-5: Develop strategies and plans for security architecture consisting of tools, techniques, and technologies to detect and prevent network penetration, and to design effective cybersecurity countermeasures. CO-6: Develop a policy to analyze network designs, topologies, architectures, protocols, communications, administration, operations, and resource management for wired, wireless, and satellite networks that affect the security of the cyberspace. CO-7: Develop a policy to implement functions that encompass putting programs, processes, or policies into action within an organization. CO-8: Prepare a plan to evaluate functions that encompass assessing the effectiveness of a program, policy, process, or security service in achieving its objectives.
