Choose one of the student-written Technology Selection papers from the list posted by your instructor in the Week 7 conference.
Read your chosen Technology Selection paper to learn more about the selected technology. Next, consider what type of formal evaluation study could be used to learn more about this technology and how it is likely to interact with people, processes, and technologies. Then, design a formal evaluation study which could be used to obtain more information about one or more of the following:
Your evaluation study design must use one of the following:
See the Technology Evaluation Methods module in the Week 2 conference for detailed descriptions of each of these types of evaluation methods.
Identify the specific questions that your formal evaluation study will address. These questions must be security-focused and should address: threats, vulnerabilities, attacks, countermeasures, risks, risk mitigations, etc. Your design should include a description of the specific security issues which will be tested or security capabilities which will be evaluated. Use standard terminology when writing about security issues (see the rubric).
Use your study design to prepare a high-level plan for your evaluation study. Your plan must include the following:
The notional timeline of events (stated in days or months after start) that provides an estimate of how long you expect your evaluation study to take. For a Delphi Method study, your study could take as little as a day or two. For a Delphi Method Study, include the number of “rounds” and how long each round will be (the time allotted for experts to consider information and reply back with their opinion on the questions or issues). For a case study, quasi-experimental, or pilot implementation design, your study may span several months; in this case, divide your timeline into phases (setup, testing, reporting).
Normally, an evaluation study plan will include a cost estimate. For this course, we will NOT be including cost elements in our evaluation study plans as the information required to develop these items is not readily available to students. If you wish to address this area of a study plan, limit your discussion to a brief listing of the cost elements (people, technologies, facilities) and state that a cost estimate will be provided separately.
Your Technology Evaluation Study Plan should be at least three pages in length but no more than ten pages (excluding the title page and references page). This should be a high level design that can be read quickly. Your study plan must contain the five major sections defined above and comply with the formatting guidance provided by your instructor.
