In the fall of 2020, the first semester of my junior year, I took ISCS 376: Cyber Security 1. This was the first upper level class of my concentration that I took, so I was very excited about it. Through it, I learned a lot and was always very excited for every class. I learned about many types of security and how to apply them, as well as about some historical attacks on companies that we can now learn from. I chose to work with Dr. Poe on my enhancement, and I wrote a paper about Denial of Service attacks, how they are caused, and how to prevent them in the future. This entire class very much set the stage for the internship I will be doing this summer, as well as set the tone for my major, which I am very excited for after taking this class. Attached to this I have included the paper I wrote for this class.
