For your chosen or assigned topic, write an 8-page paper that must include all of the following:

  • Discuss the strengths/weakness of the topic and possible improvements.
  • Use at least one NIST resource as a reference.
  • Use a minimum of 10 peer-reviewed resources.
  • APA format; Times New Roman 12-point font.

The title page and reference page do not count towards your 8-page minimum.


  • A minimum of 10 slides.
  • The title slide and reference slide do not count towards your 10-slide minimum.
  • You MUST include speaker notes in your presentation.
  1. Required Slide Elements:
  • A title for each slide
  • A unified theme
  • Subtle slide animations appropriate for a business/academic environment
  • Diagrams or pictures as necessary (must include citations if needed)
  • Reference slide(s) using APA format. Place this at the end of your presentation
  1. Proofread your slides carefully for errors in spelling and grammar. Overall appearance counts. Consider how you can go beyond the project instructions to create an effective and visually pleasing presentation.

Using APA in a PowerPoint presentation works much the same way as in a research paper.

  • “Direct quotes” (Author/Source Material, Year)
  • Paraphrase (Author/Source Material, Year)
  • Clip Art – no citation needed
  • Personal photos – no citation needed
  • Images from the Web – assume that all images not your own are copyrighted and should receive credit with a full citation as the caption for the image.

Example: Figure1. Threat Analysis Group (TAG, 2018) Retrieved from

  • References Slide(s): Provide complete citations as you would any research paper. Include all sources used in your slides or mentioned orally.
