After viewing a growing number of reportsdetailing malicious activity, the CIO requested that you draft a report in whichyou identify potential malicious attacks and threats specific to yourorganization. She asked you to include a brief explanation of each item and thepotential impact it could have on the organization.

After reviewing your report, the CIO requests that you develop a follow-upplan detailing a strategy for addressing all risks (i.e., risk mitigation, riskassignment, risk acceptance, or risk avoidance) identified in Assignment 1.Further, your plan should identify controls (i.e., administrative, preventative,detective, and corrective) that the company will use to mitigate each riskpreviously identified.
