Critically reflect on the implementation and management of offensive Cyber Operations at alllevels,3. Design and undertake substantial investigations under the context of situational awareness,4. Demonstrate self-direction and creativity in designing and developing a cyber defenceenvironmentAssignment Brief:This is an individual assessment. It is expected that the report will be in the region of 1500 words.You are expected to conduct an analysis of the network packet capture that will be made available to you,using Wireshark. You are required to present your findings in a factual manner to convince decisionmakers of a large corporation on business strategies.The capture will be made available to you in LB154 and through Canvas. The analysis rig you will have touse for this activity is setup in the CSC Labs but because of UH policies on Covid-19, you will have to useWireshark from your own device.The deadline is on the 14.01.2021 by electronic submission via Canvas.Please see the table underneath for the expected structure of the report and for the breakdown of themark allocation.
