Mitigation Plan, Part 1
In 2015, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) reported nearly 300,000 complaints of fraud, identity theft, cyber-bullying, harassment, and extortion, among others (Internet Crime Complaint Center, 2015). This is a startling number, especially considering that the IC3 only handles incidents from digital technology. The list of potential topics for mitigation is extensive.
This week, you will develop Part 1 of your Final Project: Mitigation Plan by selecting a topic for mitigation and find at least two scholarly articles related to your topic. You will determine a developmental age group and any relevant diversity factors.
· Define the problem relative to a particular developmental age group, culture, and/or gender and explain why you selected this this group and how the digital technology you chose relates to the problem
In Part 1 of your Final Project: Mitigation Plan, you selected a topic for mitigation and a developmental age group on which to focus. You also researched articles to help you identify diversity factors related to the relationship between your topic and age group. Now that you have a foundation in place, you can expand on your topic by researching the benefits and drawbacks of digital technology and its impact on the topic and group on which you are focusing.
So far with your Final Project, you have selected a specific digital technology topic and you have determined a specific developmental age group and relevant diversity factors. You have discussed the strengths and the weaknesses with regard to the impact of digital technology on the developmental age group.
· Develop 2-3 strategies for mitigation and explain how each strategy might support mitigation of the topic problem. Describe how digital technology is relevant to your mitigation strategies. Use your research to support your explanation.
For several weeks you have been developing parts of your Final Project: Mitigation Plan. This included selecting a specific digital technology topic and a specific developmental age group. You submitted each part to your instructor for feedback. Now is your chance to begin incorporating that feedback and combining the different parts into one cohesive document. You will also develop a PowerPoint presentation in which you illustrate key points of your Mitigation Plan.
