This assignment must be YOUR OWN WORK! This is an individual assignment. Plagiarism detected in your work will be addressed as discussed in the plagiarism section of the syllabus. It is understood that an assignment of this kind will have some overlap with the content of others working on the same project and with content from the Internet. However, it should be clear that structure, format, and organization of this content has not been duplicated from another source. For example, when describing the Acceptable Use Policy, do not copy and paste a definition from the Internet. Rather, you need to describe the function and role of that policy specifically in the context of your organization.
