In our first week, we will learn about the basic computer hardware components include the central processing unit (CPU), memory, storage, input devices and output devices. You will learn about each component as you go through the rest of the steps to complete this activity. You will be asked to submit an assignment that demonstrates your understanding of the topics discussed in this activity. There are links to resources that will help you understand the concepts in order to complete your work. Click on each link as you proceed through the steps. There are the steps that you must familiarize yourself with and read the material so you can answer the questions effectively. Step 1: Cybersecurity: An Introduction Step 2: Computer Hardware Overview. Step 3: Central Processing Unit Step 4: Memory Step 5: StorageStep 6: Input/Output Devices Step 7: Computer Software Overview Step 8: Systems & Application Software Step 9: Software Interaction Step 10: Programming Step 11: Submit Computer Software Assignment When you submit your project, your work, please make sure to follow these procedure in order to improve the quality of your work. 1.

Project Submission Deadline Rules from the Dean’s Office Posted Aug 22, 2019 2:39 PM All Projects Have Due Dates and Require Timely Submission! As of Fall 2019 all Projects have firm deadlines. Please note the firm DUE DATES for assignment submissions that appear in the Class and Assignment Schedule and in the online Class Calendar. You are required to meet these deadlines throughout the course. You will still have opportunities to improve your work through resubmissions. These opportunities are based on you making your initial submission by the firm due date. If you are required or eligible to resubmit your work based on the faculty feedback you received, you must do so within 2 weeks of the original due date of the assignment. The firm DUE DATES and resubmission “windows” have been put in place because they realistically reflect the conditions you will encounter in your professional life. Meeting deadlines and working within planned timelines are required competencies in the real-world. We have observed that missing project deadlines and letting work “pile up”, especially at the end of a course, negatively impacts your success. By meeting DUE DATES and resubmitting work within identified timeframes, you are demonstrating both academic and professional accountability. The keys to course success are in reading the syllabus, routinely talking with your faculty about your work, and planning ahead so that you meet class DUE DATES and resubmission “windows”. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact your faculty immediately. Should unplanned events arise as you progress through the course, proactively reach out to your professor. Best wishes on your continued success.
