How can we improve global cooperation for cybersecurity efforts

After you have reviewed these materials, develop your answer to the question: How can we improve global cooperation in response to cybersecurity challenges in cyberspace?
Your audience for this case study is a panel session at a conference attended primarily by industry representatives from U.S. companies. Your task is to prepare a two to three page white paper which summarizes your response to the question. [This paper would be provided to session attendees in advance of the panel discussion.]
Research: Review the Week 7 readings.
Re-read the recommendations from the International Chamber of Commerce Cybersecurity Guide for Business https://cdn.iccwbo.org/content/uploads/sites/3/201…
Read the following articles / documents which focus on international cooperation and capacity building:https://www.cfr.org/report/increasing-international-cooperation-cybersecurity-and-adapting-cyber-norms
https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2015/09/what-cybersecurity-means-for-global-trade/

https://www.itu.int/en/action/cybersecurity/Documents/gca-chairman-report.pdf (from 2007 but helpful for historical perspective)

Find three or more additional sources to support your answer to the panel’s question. Here is a listing of articles to help you get started: http://www.cybersecurity-review.com/tag/international-cooperation/
Write: Use standard terminology including correctly used cybersecurity terms and definitions to write a two to three page response to the panel question. At a minimum, your response must include the following:
1.An introduction which addresses the reasons why cooperation on a global basis is required to address cybersecurity challenges. This introduction should focus on political, economic, and social factors.
2.A separate section in which you discuss the business need for cooperation on a global basis. This discussion should include examples of global, multinational business which operate in cyberspace and the cybersecurity challenges each business faces. Use the “global” companies from the Industry Profile Project as your examples. These companies include: Amazon, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Oracle Corp., Priceline, Salesforce, Twitter, and Yahoo.
3.A separate section in which you identify and discuss three or more specific cooperative efforts (e.g. alliances, associations, public/private partnerships) which currently exist. These may be industry specific, national, or international efforts.
4.A separate section (“Recommendations”) in which you identify, discuss, and recommend three or more specific actions which global businesses as a whole can take to improve cooperation within and across industries for the purposes of addressing the cybersecurity challenges which you previously identified. This section should provide an overall answer to the general question: How can we improve global cooperation in response to cybersecurity challenges in cyberspace?
5.A separate closing section in which you summarize the issues and recommendations for improving global cooperation to respond to cybersecurity challenges in cyberspace.

Prepare an REA diagram describing Kim’s database. You may repeat a box for an individual entity if necessary to make your drawing neat. Kim would like for you to consider that, eventually, as new stores are opened, she will have store managers in each store that will perform the tasks she now performs.As a result, the system should be planned to always store information about the employee associated with transactions, whether that employee enters information, performs a task (such as delivery) or formally authorizes the transaction.Hints:(1) Each item on a floral receipt may be from a different purchase order.Different items on a single purchase order may be received at different times using different receipts.(2)Each check may pay for several receipts. However, a single receipt will always be paid for using the same check. (3) Multiple floral items may be disposed of using a single form.

Kim Burke is the owner and operator of a small flower shop, Kim’s Flowers. She has decided to develop a database system to track her purchases, floral inventory, accounts payable and cash payments.However, she does not have time to do the development herself.Therefore, she has hired you to design and implement the system for her.She describes the requirements of her system as follows:
Whenever flowers are needed, a purchasing agent enters a purchase order for the items needed directly into the computer system.To accommodate all of her floral needs, the purchasing agent may need to prepare several orders, as Kim orders flowers from many different vendors. The purchasing agent may order several types of flowers from a single vendor on one order.Kim approves and prints these purchase orders and sends them to the vendors.A floral designer records the receipt of flowers from a vendor on a special screen in her accounting system.At the end of each month, an accounts payable clerk creates checks to pay for all amounts charged through the end of the month.Once the checks are created, Kim authorizes the checks, prints them and mails them to vendors.Kim also uses special screens in the computer system to perform maintenance for inventory items (add, modify and delete items from the file), and to record disposal of old or damaged flowers.

Discussion—Species Interactions and You

In the field of ecology, these interactions can either be interspecific (between species) or intraspecific (within species). Interactions between humans are known as intraspecific (within species) interactions. For example, interactions between a human and a pet would be interspecific, whereas interactions between a human and another human would be intraspecific.
Research interspecific and intraspecific interactions using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet.
This assignment has two parts. Complete both parts.
Part A
Complete the following:
Track your interactions with other organisms—between and within species—for one day.
Summarize your interactions throughout the day, using the terms from this module’s readings. If required, review the module’s readings again.
At a minimum, identify ten interactions that you witnessed or participated in today. Among those interactions, you should be able to identify a predatory-prey relationship, a competitive relationship, and a mutualism. You could also identify parasitic relationships or commensalisms, if you choose. Although you can repeat interaction types—for instance, you can have multiple mutualisms—the examples must differ. These are some examples:Did you have a predatory-prey relationship with a chicken today? That is, did you eat chicken for lunch?
Did you have a competitive relationship with a coworker today? That is, were you competing for a raise?

Part B
Respond to the following:
For every interaction you identified above, describe an interaction in nature that is similar to what you experienced or witnessed. For example, if you had a predatory-prey interaction with your meal, identify and describe an example of a predatory-prey interaction in nature. Or, if you had a competitive interaction with your coworker, identify and describe a competitive interaction in nature.
Using the information you reviewed, explain why it is important to recognize these interactions.
Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references.
Using the information that you compiled above, summarize your interactions for the day. Be sure to classify your interactions (parasitic, mutualism, etc.) and that you also determine if the interactions are considered intraspecific or interspecific.
Write your initial response in a minimum of 300–350 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
By the due date assigned, post your response to the Discussion Area. Throughthe end of the module, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses. In your response posting, address the following by employing the concepts covered in module readings and your research:
Evaluate your fellow students’ examples of interactions in nature. Are the categories accurately identified? Are the examples valid?
What did you learn from the other students’ entries and comparisons?
Did you agree or disagree with students’ explanation of the importance of recognizing these interactions?
Be sure to give reasons for your responses.
