Details:Scenario: You are working at a government agency and your section recently received a new intern, River, to learn about critical infrastructures. River will be with your section for at least six months, perhaps permanently. The section chief tasked you to write a short paper on three of the critical infrastructures for River this week and discuss them in terms of physical attacks, cyber events, and natural disasters.
You already talked to River about three of them through some casual discussions and you need to cover three of the remaining ones. Using the Critical Manufacturing sector, the Water and Wastewater Systems sector and the Food and Agricultural sector. Determine which one of them you will use to discuss a physical attack, which one for a cyber event, and the remaining one for a natural disaster.
You decide that you need to write something that will catch River’s attention and provide the information in an interesting way. You determined to use the following outline for each of the three sections (plus the overarching requirements):
Description of a Hypothetical Threat (physical, cyber, or natural disaster)Brief background on the Critical Infrastructure as it relates to National SecurityElaborate on the known Risks/Threats/Hazards/Vulnerabilities from the Hypothetical ThreatExplain how damage to the Hypothetical Threat could impact the Dependencies/Interdependencies between critical infrastructure sectorsExisting Resiliency related to Continuity of OperationsConsider how to Minimize Disruption that improves First Responder Safety.Technical Requirements
Your paper must be approximately 6 pages – 2 pages per critical infrastructure discussed (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).Scholarly and/or credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least two sources per page of content.Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double-spaced.Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc.
