organizations. Below is a list of some of the companies that have suffered the

a) Paper

Choose one company from the list above and write a paper describing impact

of the data breach it suffered, information assets which were affected and how

the cyber-attack succeeded. What was compromised for the cyber-attack to

succeed (i.e. managerial controls, technical controls, etc.)? How much risk

did that organization incur? Did the affected organization respond adequately

to mitigate incident following the cyber-attack? How involved was the

management team?

programs, legal and professional issues in cybersecurity, risk management,

cybersecurity technology etc. Using that knowledge, what lessons can be
