3. Earlier this year a data breach occurred at a company called PageUp that affected the University of Tasmania. Discuss the responsibilities of companies in the event of a data breach in relation to the Federal Data Breach Notification (NDB) scheme. 4. Many websites and other network services in recent times increased their usage of second factor authentication. Describe how this can mitigate the risks present in password only systems. 5. Describe the concept of a Man-In-The-Middle attack, and then describe the main countermeasure used on the web to mitigate the risk of such an attack. Note on Plagiarism Plagiarism is a very serious matter, and ignorance of this is not an excuse. If you submit work, claiming it to be your own, and it is not original work of your own this is cheating. This can result in academic penalties both in relation to your assignment, but also on your permanent university record. If you quote content from another place, use a reference. That is perfectly acceptable. However, if you don’t use a reference you could lose marks. If the work is actually that of another student, then a plagiarism case may be filed against you with the possible penalties mentioned above.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
