Your goal for this Application is to analyze the frequency distributions of data provided as an SPSS data file. A worksheet is provided for this Application, in the form of a Microsoft Word document. Download the Module 4 Application Assignment Worksheet and paste your output—the frequency distribution table—at the end of the document. Then, based on your output, answer the questions on the worksheet, typing your answers directly into the document.
Run data distributions on the data file provided. Complete the Module 4 Application Assignment Worksheet, pasting the frequency distributions table at the end of the document. Be sure that your completed worksheet contains your responses to all questions and your SPSS output.
Data governance involves the supervision, monitoring, and control of an organization’s data assets. Its main concerns are data quality, appropriateness, and cost-effectiveness of the controls. It is difficult because organizations typically have a lot of old data, which is of unknown quality.
Imagine that you must collect and assess the quality and appropriateness of data held by a large, multi-national organization. What steps you would take? Include how you would address network, security, and ethical considerations when deciding what data to collect from the company.
This is not a job you can do on your own! Explain the kinds of support you’ll need and how you will obtain resources and cooperation.

For this discussion I am going to give you an opportunity to participate as an original focus group for a research project I am conducting.
I am interested in exploring the question of:
“What is the relationship between discussion questions and learning outcomes in online courses?”
There are three tasks for your post here:
1. What is your personal definition of “learning” as applied to “what you learn” in an online course.
2. Please indicate on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest, “How useful have discussion questions been in facilitating your learning of the subject matter in your previous online courses.”
3. Please provide me with a short narrative describing your experience of discussion questions and your “learning” in your previous online courses.

Express your opinion on the importance of today´s technological advances. Then discuss how different our lives would be without them.
In June 2010, Stuxnet, a complex and highly sophisticated computer worm was discovered by Kaspersky Lab. Stuxnet targeted Siemens industrial Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. It was reported that the worm appeared to target Iran’s uranium enrichment infrastructure. Most computer worms and viruses tend to target consumer systems such as desktop computers and laptop computers.
You can learn more about Stuxnet at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scNkLWV7jSw.
Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:
Analyze the level of security requirements between industrial systems and consumer devices such as desktop computers. Address if they should be the same or different.
Analyze the anatomy of Stuxnet and how it was able to damage Iran’s SCADA systems.
Evaluate the lessons that were learned from Stuxnet about the vulnerability of Iran’s SCADA systems. Suggest how the attacks could have been prevented.
Provide five (5) guidelines that should be used to reduce a network’s attack surface for industrial control systems.
