Project Assignment Layout:

This project will test your ability to apply what you have learned in this course, in a practical way, by describing components of your company’s Telecommunications and Network Security protocols and how they might be improved. The Project will be completed in 3 phases with 3 Deliverables that build upon each other. Each Deliverable will consist of a properly constructed (spelling and grammar count) and referenced paper. In-text citations and the Bibliography must use APA formatting. I highly recommend that you use the Built-in features of Microsoft Word (Headings, Styles, Cover Page, Table of Contents, Headers, Footers, References) to construct your paper. To make it easier I have included a MS Word Template that you can download and add to. I also included a video on how to use these built-in features.
