  2. Devise one (1) attack scenario where a hacker could use the area of vulnerability that you chose in Question 1 in order to gain access to a network or sensitive data. Examine the primary ways in which the hacker could execute such an attack, and suggest the strategic manner in which a security professional could prevent the attack.
  3. Explore the primary role that the human element could play in adding to the attack scenario devised in Question 2. Give your opinion on whether or not the human component is critical in protection from that type of attack.

Do not discuss other fossil fuels or nuclear energy, which are all nonrenewable sources.  Additionally, discuss the role that government plays in ensuring a transition to these renewable alternatives in a post peak-oil world.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Utilize at least two scholarly or reputable resources and your textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources in APA format.
