For the case, answer the following questions:

  1. Do a search and find an IT risk assessment or use your organization’s assessment if one exists.  From the steps listed in Module 4 Case, assess how this risk assessment compares.

  3. Discuss the assets at risk and what vulnerabilities exist.
  4. Discuss the overall organization impacts.
  5. What are the recommendations?
