Discussion: Vulnerability Management

Discussion: Vulnerability Management

First, review the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) website

Then, in your initial post, discuss the importance of the website to you as a cybersecurity risk assessor. 

In response to your peers, discuss different uses of the site to include tools and resources that can help you in your risk assessment efforts.



Discussions: How to get a better grade!


The Critical Thinking aspect of the discussion rubric is awarded based on “Draws insightful conclusions that are thoroughly defended with evidence and examples.” The easiest way to do this is to compare or contrast with other articles, or make inferences and conclusions from two or more articles (main reading and one other). Here is an example:


Defining and controlling Scope, within the Risk Management Plan, is important because it keeps costs down and projects on schedule. According to Gibson (2003), the key to handling scope-creep is to control the changes and make acceptable changes as identified by the stakeholders. The Project Management Institute (PMI, 2017) says that changes to scope should be though “formal change control procedures” (para. 1). From these ideas, I’d conclude that task 1-2 SCOPE (NIST 800-30, p. L-1) should include Change Management boards or committees that validate and approve all changes to scope.

Allow your discussion posts to be detailed and capable of sharing knowledge, ideas and points.  You must discuss the topic using your own words first.  Using your own words indicate you understand the topic of discussions.  Secondly, you must cite your sources in-text.  This is necessary to justify your points. Sources from several sources showed good research abilities.  Lastly, you must provide references at the bottom of your post.  A discussion post without justification with sources does not show proper research abilities. A terse and not detailed discussions represent post that would not provide enough sharing of knowledge or proper understanding of the topic. DO NOT just copy and paste a sentence from online with citation at the end as your own discussion. I have not asked for definitions, I asked for discussions and will not buy this.  You must show understanding of the discussion topic by using your own words to describe the topic and then justify that with sources. to format references into the APA style if necessary. Extremely important. Intext citations is very essential and highly needed as well.


12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA citation method (citation should be relevant and current). Page-length requirements:1 page at least. Make sure you cite if you take a piece of someone’s work, very important and your reference should relate to your writing (don’t cite a reference because it relates to the course and not this very paper) at least 4 current and relevant academic references. No heavy paraphrasing of others work.
