Every Friday, I will post a report of the progress on my Senior Thesis during the week so far. Here's an overview of where I am at the moment for background:
I have narrowed down the focus of my topic to look at information security , information theft, and the impact of hacking and identity theft. The paper and presentation will look at this topic through two different lenses. The paper will take more of a global perspective, looking at businesses, governments, and societies. This will address large-scale issues such as the safety of online finance and the impact of "hacktivists" like the WikiLeaks crew. The presentation will be more personal -- a short movie intended to instruct viewers on how to keep their personal information secure on the Web.
Check back on Friday for the first thrilling installment of My Progress Reports!
