This is a complete lesson on how to identify and prevent network threats/vulnerabilities (for OCR GCSE 9-1 1.6).
This resource features a full powerpoint presentation lesson that includes a starter and necessary information about each way to identify/prevent a vulnerability. This includes:
- Penetration Testing (including information on black-box and white-box attacks)
- Network Forensics (including “catch-it-as-you-can” and “stop, look and listen”)
- Network Policies
- Anti-Malware Software
- User Access Levels
There are questions on some slides for class discussion about that specific identification/prevention technique.
As well as that, there are 2 worksheets for students to fill in - this is to consolidate their knowledge. Most answers for the worksheets are in the powerpoint and some others require commons sense. I like to go through the answers with my class so that we can have a discussion. An exam-styled 8 mark question is included; I think these are very important as they can be the difference between a grade. I included the mark scheme for each worksheet if you like to give your students the mark scheme so that they can self-assess.
