Evaluate how creation and enforcement of information security policies can impact customers and business partners that have a relationship with a government agency or organization.

Information security policies are the core internal guidance for an organization and must be enacted prior to the purchase of information security controls. There is a bit of a “chicken and egg” dispute in the information security community as to whether it is appropriate to first engage in risk assessment with policies created to address those findings or whether it is appropriate to first create policies against which a risk assessment can be performed. On a more granular level, security policy is meant to document what is important to a particular organization related to information technology assets, including data. This sequential order is critical to the success of an information security program because a successful program ensures that organizations do not spend too little or too much money when purchasing controls to enforce these policy decisions. For example, it is possible to purchase a certificate that uses DNA as the key to enforce an access control policy, but there are very few situations where that would be an appropriate or balanced choice.
You are a new information security officer for Metro City Community College. Metro City has a small urban campus in downtown Detroit and also offers their catalog of courses online.

Describe the three (3) principles of direct manipulation and give examples as to how they are used in video game controls.

 

Early computer systems relied on command line interfaces to perform all actions. Today, the majority of systems use direct manipulation rather than a command line interface. The goal of designing a direct manipulation interface is to make use of the system intuitive to the end user. One industry that has been extremely successful designing intuitive direct manipulation inputs is the video game industry. Most game players are able to learn controls as they play a game and then apply the same controls to similar games.  Rarely do they need to read a user manual.

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Describe the three (3) principles of direct manipulation and give examples as to how they are used in video game controls.
  2. Analyze video game-type interfaces and discuss three (3) reasons why video game-type interfaces would not be effective for real-world applications.
  3. Describe at least three (3) advantages of direct manipulation versus command line interfaces.
  4. Evaluate direct manipulation and describe three (3) problems with it.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
