- Readings on internet privacy
Protecting your personal privacy is of high priority in today’s internet world. Unfortunately, unscrupulous individuals constantly change their tactics, logistics, and technologies in an attempt to gain unauthorized access to our personal data. During our class meeting, we will discuss issues related to privacy and appropriate messages to minimize personal data loss.

3. Read Collaboration & Team Building
Trust, responsibility, leadership and time management are characteristics critical for a group to collaborate effectively. We expect everyone in this class to demonstrate an understanding of how to collaborate effectively as professionals, regardless of your personal familiarity with one another. Most importantly, each member must assume a role to contribute equally to your group’s outcomes. Receiving credit for work done by others because you are too busy is, needless to say, inexcusable and unprofessional.
