Summary:In week 8, you will submit a policy paper that will explore the importance of understanding politics and participate in political decision, by looking at an issue that affects you and society (actually most policies affect all of us), as well as the consequences of political decisions on society.Can you think of an example when you encounter politics? An example of how you encounter politics in everyday life would be paying taxes. Who decided how much do you have to pay in sales tax, property tax, or income tax? How much fuel tax did you pay? Recycling?Pick an issue that can be affected by political decisions (invasive species, fishing limits, healthy school lunches, taxes, building new homes near flood zones, Social Security crisis, unemployment, immigration, drug abuse, crime control, etc). For example, if you are a nursing major, a good idea would be to focus on if nurses should be allowed to treat patients without the assistance of medical doctors under certain conditions (e.g. N.P.s).Describe the issue. Does the government play a role in regulating this issue?What is the most recent policy that regulated this issue?Who in the government was involved in making this policy? (Congress, president, Supreme Court, or local government, etc).Did citizens play a role? Was this an election topic?Was there anything you learned during this class about politics that helped you understand how government affects you when it comes to the issue of your choice? Has this changed your perspective on the importance of understanding politics? Why or why not?For your week 6 assignment, in in 2-2.5 pages, please provide a draft of the following:Describe the issue. Does the government play a role in regulating this issue?What is the most recent policy that regulated this issue?Who in the government was involved in making this policy? (Congress, president, Supreme Court, or local government, etc).Did citizens play a role? Was this an election topic?Was there anything you learned during this class about politics that helped you understand how government affects you when it comes to the issue of your choice? Has this changed your perspective on the importance of understanding politics? Why or why not?I upload my thesis statement from last week 5.

Data Security Issue
The increase and escalation of cybercrime is a threat to both the private and public sector.
Moreover, the need for organizations to ensure that data is secure and used properly is nearly
impossible (Li et al., 2019). Data security guarantees accountability since corporations can
ensure that IT employees, management, and workforce are knowledgeable regarding data
handling (Basani, 2016). The classification of data into confidential, internal company data,
general data, and external data ensures the staff is aware of how each type is handled.
Data security governs network services by dictating how a company handles issues
related to IP address configuration and management along with remote access. The security of
components such as switches and routers is guaranteed along with defined network detection
intrusion (Li et al., 2019). Data security scans for vulnerabilities mainly in the IT infrastructure
should be conducted before hackers do so. Data security policies manage patches through codes
that are implemented for the elimination of vulnerabilities to help with protection against threats.
Accordingly, security policies related to system data ensure that all essential operating
systems and servers are configured. A clear definition of rules about servers that operate a
company’s network and management of passwords and accounts is necessary (Kemper, 2019).
Policies regarding antivirus, database, and firewall should also be well-defined. Data security
monitors compliance using audits so that company management and staff maintain consistency
with various aspects of securing data (Basani, 2016). The audit should be regular including the
monitoring and control of accounts to keep track of those accessing the significant components
data security. Data security is, therefore, a considerable issue of cybersecurity as it safeguards
corporate and personal data from access by third parties.
