Please select your Capstone Project Topic idea paper by submitting a topic based on previous research and coursework that you have completed in Cybersecurity or on a Cybersecurity topic that piques your interest. Your topic needs to be closely related to at least one of the course objectives (listed below for your convenience). Your Capstone Project Topic paper will be analyzed to determine if it meets the criteria for a full Capstone project. If it does, you will be permitted to begin fleshing out your final Capstone Project that will be due in Week # 8. If your project topic requires further work or needs to be changed altogether, you will be notified as such.
4 – 6 Pages in length in APA format (not including a cover page and reference section)

Review of Literature (it will need to be detailed enough to determine that you have enough background for a topic that is sufficient for a 35-page Capstone project)
Reference Section (you will need at least 10 references – for the final Capstone Project Paper you will need 20)
Use current and real-world data to make your points, not just the textbook.
Your references should not be more than 5 years old.
