Discretion, Collection, Correlation, Awareness, Response) in the context of national and critical infrastructure protection. Identify any two security principles and evaluate and discuss how it can be applied to EnergyA.
Your case analysis needs to minimally address the following
ï± The relevance of cybersecurity in the energy sector
ï± Existing research on cybersecurity practices in the energy sector
ï± Why you are focusing on the specific two security principles
ï± For each security principle, identify its relevance in the energy sector
ï± For each security principle, identify how the principle can be implemented
ï± For each security principle, identify challenges presented in implementing it
ï± Discussion that connects your entire analysis with the topic and future
implications of cybersecurity in the energy sector Your research paper should be minimally 10 pages (double space, Font – Georgia with font size 12). The research paper needs cite at least 5 peer reviewed journal/book references.
