1. Identify one cyberattack that occurred in the last 2 years. What caused the cyberattack? How did the cyberattack impact data loss, financial loss, cleanup cost, and the loss of reputation? If you were the manager of this company, what are some key steps you would have taken to prevent cyberattacks and enhance cybersecurity? Recommend information that should be in the cloud and describe which information should not be in the cloud. Be sure to include in your recommendation your thoughts on preventing cyberattacks, addressing security concerns, or strengthening network infrastructure. 2. You may have noticed that when you look at products on a search engine, that same product appears as an advertisement in your social media and other sites you visit. Many search engines provide advertisers with tools for evaluating the impact of different keywords or phrases. These tools typically “track” user behavior patterns and associate products for sale by companies that subscribe to and pay for their services to help identify potential customers. On the other hand, there are also ad-blockers that block this type of communication. What constraints, if any, should be applied to this practice? If you are the CIO or an executive manager at a small company that depends on this type of advertising to generate revenue, how might this affect your feelings toward the technology? 3. Customers use mobile devices for a wide range of shopping and commercial activities. Mobile devices are becoming an attractive way to pay for products or conduct banking. Select an organization with which you regularly do business but not one you have used in a previous discussion. o Describe the benefits this organization provides through its mobile computing options. o What risks most concern you in using this app? How would you mitigate these risks?
