To complete a research work, a lot of hardworking is needed. To make the research interesting, patience and right knowledge is needed. Completing this research work was not so easy but while doing this, I learnt various new things. I will be describing my personal work experience while doing this research under the following heads below.
The topic selection and other related problems
The world of business is a vast world so choosing any one certain topic among the plenty of topics available was quite a difficult job for me. I tried to choose a topic which has much relevance in today’s world. My topic was- ‘Challenges in cyber security for business’. I found this topic interesting and we live in an electronic world where security of network, application, information and other operations are mandatory. I had gone through several articles, books and websites to come up with this particular topic. After finding it worthy of a research work I discussed it with my team members. Everyone was giving equal efforts for selecting a topic. I suggested that it is a recent issue and we should work on it after gathering much information about it. So after ditching every other topic that crossed my mind, I decided to do this one and presented it to my team members for approval. When the research topics were distributed among us, I studied the particular topic in detail and gathered a lot of knowledge and experienced working in a team which I am sure will help me in future.
Contribution in literature review
Well, I made sure that the literary facts that had been included in the ‘relevant literature’ part of my research are valid and strong. To do this, I had studied many journals, articles and books which contained information regarding my topic. Whatever information I gathered, I checked the relevance of it and discussed it with my team members. While designing this part of my research, I tried to put only the strong, valid and relevant facts by obtaining a contextual understanding. It has been designed in a structural manner and it consists of all the recent literary facts. I learnt a lot of new things while reviewing this part of my research which has helped to gain more knowledge about this topic.
Contribution in Methodology
In this research work I have tried to follow both the methods of data collection. Following the steps of primary data collection. A questionnaire was prepared which was a way to gather more information about the topic. The question was asked to know more about the topic and how much familiar we are with the topic. When everyone stated their views on this topic, I analysed them. Apart from that, following the secondary method of data collection, I have tried to collect as much information I can get from books, journals and articles about the different challenges faced by cyber security and its related problems. I had searched various other relevant sources which has helped me in gathering more and more valid information. After the data collection part was over, I moved forward to analyse them and check its relevance.
I have worked on such a topic which is a very important issue nowadays. The rate of cyber crimes has been increasing lately, so it is very important to build such a system of cyber security that faces less hurdles while investigating those crimes. apart from gaining a lot of knowledge, I also learnt to do methodology, sampling, analysis and other important things necessary to complete a project work. As I said our topic dealt with a recent problem, so I also came to know about the several challenges faced by the cyber security in the recent times. I came to know about the good side and bad side of the cyber security. I gathered knowledge regarding the literary facts of cyber security and the opinions of few famous personalities regarding it. Most importantly, I realized the necessity of cyber security. Lastly, I learnt why it is necessary to remove the challenges on the way of cyber security as it affects every sector of the world.
The research was teamwork and every part of the research was distributed among us. I have tried to do my part of the research that was particularly assigned to me. Apart from gathering information about this topic, I have helped to choose the topic. This topic was selected by me and after consulting with the other team members, it was given approval. I started with introduction and article based topic interest. I also helped in reviewing the literature report. I have designed this research and tried to make it as innovative as possible. I have gone through a lot of articles and journals to collect data. So, I have worked for the methodology section as well. I have helped in collection other information as well which will help my topic to be more innovative and interesting and will be useful to other team members. I have also helped other team members regarding the literature review work and also analysed the data collected from methodology. I helped in designing the questionnaire which has helped a lot in collecting data during our methodology. I have always tried to make research works innovative, so I have tried out several ways by which the research work will become more innovative.
A research work might be a difficult work to do but it helps to acquire knowledge, a lot of knowledge. After completing this particular research paper I have actually learnt a lot of new things regarding my topic i.e., its importance in modern world, the challenges it has to go through and other things related to the matter. On the other hand, I have experienced group work or team work which has helped me to learn cooperation, distribution of work and patience which will help me in future.
