Abstract

The Global Security and Intelligence Studies Senior Capstone has been a three-semester long project with the objective to develop and finalize an intelligence program which will help the clients collect information on violence in social media. The first semester’s goal was to identify the trends of violence in social media, and research was subsequently conducted that identified who is vulnerable to violence in social media. The second semester’s primary goal was to create a preliminary intelligence collection method by working with Prescott Unified School District to establish times for initial collection and presentations for students in four target audiences: 5th to 6th graders, 6th through 8th graders, 9th and 10th graders, and 11th and 12th graders. The third semester’s goal is to finalize this intelligence program and to make final recommendations for the clients as how to best conduct this type program in the future. The initial phase of the third semester was analyzing the research and findings of each of the previous semesters. The second phase was to revise the presentations established by the second semester and to conduct collection and presentations at middle schools and high schools in Prescott and Humboldt Unified School Districts. The final phase will be to analyze the information collected during the final presentations. The objective of this project to develop and finalize an intelligence program which will help the clients collect information on violence in social media will allow the clients to identify specific threats their audiences face, allowing them to create their own customized programs. The results will allow the team to provide recommendations for the clients to establish new policies defining how to deal with cyberbullying and sextortion.
