Would that work as a model?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.


Hi and thank you for the QUICK response. Smile. However there were specific points that needed to be addressed. they are,


 


"Protecting the American People",


" Protecting our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure",


" Protecting Federal Government Computers and Networks"


" New Framework to Protect Individuals’


Privacy and Civil Liberties".


 


This is where the 3-5 points of proposal analyses come
from. I think you address one of the three already.


 


Let me know if you need any more info.

I've reviewed the document again and three items are covered from the points of proposal as below:

· Privacy and Civil Liberty amendments – New Framework to Protect Individuals’ Privacy and Civil Liberties

· Data Centers – Protecting Federal Government Computers & Networks

· Shared security professionals – Protecting our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure



Let me know if that makes sense, do you want me to rework the document?

Cheers

Steve

Yes sir,


However I only need 3 of the 5 points. Thank you.

Expert:  Steve Herrod replied 10 months ago.
Sorry if I wasn't clear but in the document I originally attached these 3 points are covered:

New Framework to Protect Individuals’ Privacy and Civil Liberties (section concerning privacy and civil liberty amendments)

Protecting Federal Government Computers & Networks (section concerning Data Centers)

Protecting our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure (section concerning Shared Security Professionals)

So the document I sent through meets the necessary requirements - are you going to use it as a model or do I need to rework it at all?

Cheers

Steve

Steven,


You completed an assignment for me about 2 weeks ago. However I was questioned about the assignment. It was sent to turnitin to check for plagarism. I don't know the score that was given but i was told that it was high. Any suggestions? was the paper you completed for me from a previous work? Please advise.

Expert:  Steve Herrod replied 10 months ago.
Hi,

As outlined the paper sent had been completed before and covered all the requirements
