For this course, the research paper will be a blend of academic principals covered in the course as well as practical projects that relate to those principles. This is designed to provide a greater environment of learning through the actual exercise of creating a comprehensive security assessment.
To complete this:
1.) Please pick three to five of the topics covered in the course. These can be items such as physical design, barriers (physical or protective), lighting, alarms, video, fences, and security personnel etc.
2.) Next pick an established entity and compare and contrast what exists in this structure with what was learned in this course. If lighting is one of the three choices for your research project, state the issues associated with such a deficiency.
3.) Propose a remedy to this problem to the structure you choose. Now conduct the same examination for the other two topics you choose for your structure.
