1 INTRODUCTION For your introduction to the project, PAUSE NOW from reading this, and carefully review the Cyber Security Careers Project Introduction PowerPoint. Now that you know what your project entails, here are a few additional details for you to consider. You will complete this project as an individual or with a partner, following the Problem Solving Process. This process includes the following six steps: STEP 1 STEP 2 STEP 3 STEP 4 STEP 5 STEP 6 Problem Definition: Define the Problem & Research the Problem Solution Criteria: Decide What Criteria Your Solution Must Have Possible Solutions: Choose Possible Career Options Solution Choice: Investigate a Specific Career (*Optional Segment- Making Real World Connections ) Implementation: Create your Visual Aid/Presentation Reflection: Reflect on your Project The Driving Questions you will answer through the course of completing this project are: } What are the dangers of using the Internet? } What kinds of jobs are out there to help protect us? } What kind of work do these people do to keep us safe? Put another way, the Problems Introduced in this project are that you will need to: } Determine what the dangers of using the Internet are. } Discover what kinds of careers are out in the workplace to help battle these dangers. } Understand what their specific role is and what kind of work they do in their job. 1

2 STEP 1: Problem Definition: Define the Problem & Research the Problem Directions: Using your Driving Questions (found in the introduction), clearly define the problem you must solve. Fill in each box in the chart below with a problem definition. Create a problem definition by taking each Driving Question and making it a statement. Problem Definition Chart EXAMPLE: If the driving question was the following: } What are common uses for the Internet? Then your problem definition would be: The problem is I do not know... common uses for the Internet. } What are the dangers of using the Internet? The problem is I do not know } What kinds of jobs are out there to help protect us? The problem is I do not know } What kind of work do these people do to keep us safe? The problem is I do not know Now that you have defined the problem, you will need to research each problem to find information for each of the following: Identify five dangers of using the Internet. Identify and create a list of five types of cyber security careers. Identify and create a list of five companies that have cyber security jobs. The research grid below will help guide your research and note taking. You will need to use credible/reliable sources. Use the back of the paper or a separate paper if you need more space. In the column on the left, you will ask your research question. In the column on the right, you will record your research, providing the following three pieces of information. A. Direction Quotation: Copy and paste the quote directly from the source or type it. B. Paraphrase (in red): Rewrite the quote in your own words. C. Source: List the website name and URL or the citation for the source where you obtained your information. We ve created an example of how to do your research. Follow this and fill out the Research Grid found on the next page. That grid will organize your research for your first research question related to the dangers of the Internet. EXAMPLE: Origins of where Judaism Direct Quotation/Paraphrase/Source started. (Find at least 3) What are the origins of Judaism? A. Direct Quotation: This people, Israel started life as one family tracing its antecedents back to Abraham, the Hebrew who lived approximately 3800 years ago. B. Paraphrase (in red): Jewish people say that they come from the man named Abraham who was living 3800 years ago. C. Source: Website Name & URL: Jewish History Citation: Ruggiero, Adrianne, ed. Judaism. Detroit: Greenhaven, Print 2

3 RESEARCH GRID: Dangers of the Internet (Find at least 5) What is a danger of the Internet? (Explain why it is a danger.) Direct Quotation/Paraphrase/Source What is a danger of the Internet? (Explain why it is a danger.) What is a danger of the Internet? (Explain why it is a danger.) What is a danger of the Internet? (Explain why it is a danger.) What is a danger of the Internet? (Explain why it is a danger.) 3

4 On a separate paper, create the same research grid that you just completed on the previous page to answer your two other research questions. Below are the questions that you should include in the left-hand column, you will write your direct quotations, paraphrase (in red) and sources in the right-hand column. Types of Cyber Security Careers (find at least 5) } What is a type of cyber security career? (Explain what kind of work a person with this job has to do.) Companies that have Cyber Security Jobs (find at least 5) } What is a company that has a cyber security job? (Explain what the company does and the job(s) they offer.) STEP 2: Solution Criteria: Decide What Criteria Your Solution Must Have Directions: In this step, you need to determine what criteria your solution needs to meet. In other words, what must be true about each solution no matter which one you choose? And why are these criteria important? So, to answer that question, think through what is most important to you when deciding on a career. You will need to pick at least one cyber security-related career you would want to do or be interested in doing. However, you need to first determine your standards or basic expectations (criteria) for a job in order to decide what you truly want. Some possible questions to answer would be: } Do you want to pick a career that makes a lot of money, but is not as enjoyable? OR } Do you want a job that makes less but is a job you really enjoy doing? For example you could want a job that: Pays good money- $50,000 a year or more Helps stop cyber criminals Allows you to work with gaming companies The list above provides examples of solution criteria. Whatever solution (job) you choose must meet these requirements (criteria). Fill out the Solution Criteria Sheet below by picking at least three solution criteria (You can add more if you would like). Give an explanation of 2-3 sentences explaining WHY each solution criteria is important to you. Criteria Why this is important EXAMPLE: Pays good money- $50,000 a year or more I want to be secure. I want to make sure I have enough money to buy a nice home and car. I want to be able to travel and go on family vacations

5 STEP 3: Possible Solutions: Choose Possible Career Options Directions: Select possible career options by researching and completing the Career Exploration Grid below. You need to answer, What are your possible solutions for choosing a career? From your Research Grid, of the five careers you researched, pick the three you are most interested in. Fill each career name/title in the Possible Solutions column. 4. In order to better understand each career, you will need to further explore it through research. Follow the same process as you did for the Research Grid. For each career complete answers for items 1 to 8. Career Exploration Grid Career #1 Career Name/Title: Possible Solutions Provide a job description for this career. Direct Quotation/Paraphrase/ Source What skills are needed to do this job? What kind of education is needed to do this job? 4. How much money does a person in this job make? 5

6 5. What are some companies where a person could do this job? 6. What are the advantages of this job? 7. What are the disadvantages of this job? 8. What are some questions you might ask a person in this job? List at least Question 1: Question 2: Question 3: On a separate sheet of paper, create the Career Exploration grid you just completed on the previous pages. You will complete this same grid twice more for your other two career options, writing in and researching the same questions found on this Career Exploration grid. 6

7 STEP 4 Part 1: Solution Choice: Investigate a Specific Career Directions: Complete the Career Comparison Chart below to compare your solutions using your criteria. Write each of your researched careers in the Possible Solutions column. Write each of your solution criteria along the top row of the chart (add more columns if you have more than three solution criteria). Then look at each career and determine if it meets each of your criteria. Put a check in the box if it meets it. Leave it blank if it does not. 4. Then fill in what you found are advantages and disadvantages of doing this job. 5. Based on which solution meets your criteria best and offers the most advantages, decide on a solution choice. Career Comparison Chart Possible Solutions Criteria 1: Criteria 2: Criteria 3: Advantages: Disadvantages: Career #1: Career #2: Career #3: Solution Choice & Rationale: Why did you pick this as your solution choice? Give a reason based on how your choice meets each solution criteria. Also give a reason based on the advantages/disadvantages. Solution Choice: Reason 1 (Criteria) Reason 2 (Criteria) Reason 3 (Criteria) Reason 4 Advantages/ Disadvantages 7

8 STEP 4 Part 2: Solution Choice: Investigate a Specific Career Directions: Take a further look into your solution (career) choice through researching the career in greater depth. Now that you have chosen a specific solution, you will need to do some further investigation into this career. Although you researched some of these topics earlier, now you will investigate even deeper in order to complete the Career Investigation Chart and better understand this career. Career Investigation Sheet Career Name/Title: Find an actual job description for this career on a company website and write it out. Direct Quotation/Paraphrase/Source How does a person in this job help deal with Internet dangers? In addition to the ones you already found, find out at least two more skills needed for this job. 4. Find out the specific degree needed for this job. 8

9 5. Find a college/university in your state which provides this degree. 6. What is the cost of this degree? 7. Find a company in your state where a person could do this job. 8. Does this company offer internships for this specific job? Move on to STEP 5, if you are not going to complete the optional segment Making Real World Connections. 9

10 STEP 4 Optional: Solution Choice: Making Real World Connections Directions: In this step you will be guided in creating an or phone interview request and then completing an interview with a professional that is currently working in the career you have selected and researched. First, you need to have a complete list of interview questions. Fill in your questions from #8 of your Career Exploration Grid in Step 3 as questions 1, 2, and 3 (or substitute for more intriguing questions, now that you know more about the career) of your Interview Sheet below. When you re ready to conduct the interview, you will write the interviewee s responses below each question. Interview Sheet (Your Question) (Your Question) (Your Question) 4. How would you describe your job? 5. What skills do you need to do your job? 6. What kind of education did you have to get in order to do this job? 7. Where did you go to school to get your degree? 8. How much did it cost you to go to college/get your degree? 9. What is the average yearly salary of people in your profession? 10. What is the name of your company and what does it specifically do? 1 Does your company offer any internship for students? 1 What are some parts of your job you enjoy? 1 What are some parts of your job you do not like? 14. Is there anything else you can tell me about your career which I haven t already asked? 10

11 PAUSE NOW and carefully review the Contacting a Professional PowerPoint presentation so you know how to prepare a polished and succinct request for an interview, whether by or by phone.
