critical infrastructure Conduct a literature review on emerging threats and challenges faced by the U.S. critical infrastructure and the application of countermeasures. You will review the literature on emerging threats and countermeasures and discuss the identified problems and gaps in the literature. You will expand on the findings and discuss how researchers have attempted to examine the findings by collecting their data – you will NOT be collecting data, but rather report on how researchers did their collection. As you read the literature, it will become apparent that there are multiple issues, pick one issue that stands out in the literature.
FORMAT Cover: Include the names of those who participated in the project Table of contents: Use a Microsoft Enabled Table of Contents feature.

Methodology: What approach did the researcher use, qualitative, quantitative, survey, case study? Describe the population that was chosen. Data Analysis: What were some of the findings, for example, if there were any hypotheses asked, were they supported? Conclusions: What was the conclusion of any data collections, e.g., were research questions answered, were hypotheses supported? Discussion: Here you can expand on the research and what the big picture means; how do the results find in your literature review help organizations in the critical infrastructure
areas? What do you see as long-term impacts and what further research could be done in the field? References: Include at least ten scholarly references in APA format.
