Course Wrap-Up and Reflection
This course allowed you to explore the foundations of IT and various related technologies. Take a moment to reflect upon the different objectives and concepts that have been covered throughout the course.
To log on to a website such as Hotmail, you need to specify your logon name and password. The site does not allow you to access your e-mail messages if the information provided is incorrect. At times, you do not remember the password for a particular site and have to repeatedly guess the right password and type it, wasting valuable time.
Do you think this is an annoyance that users have to undergo to ensure security over the network? Give five possible consequences if the site allows you to access your mail without authenticating your logon name and password. Provide reasons for your answers.
Reflect back on the course material: infrastructure, hardware and software that make up computer systems, the Internet, and web security. What have you learned in the course overall that you will use in your daily work about security and networking? How will it change which systems you decide to use and which companies you will do business with? Address your classmates’ comments as well.
Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references.
