Research recent cyber breaches that have occurred with different companies. Select a company that had a cyber breach and consider what happened and what could have been done differently (examples include Sony, Maersk, Saks, Lord & Taylor, Sacramento Bee, TicketFly, Panera, Facebook, Target, Under Armour, and Equifax). Given that cyber breaches are more common, write about the importance of cyber defenses and organizational hardening for an organization’s supply chain. In your paper, consider the government requirements that are currently in place and how this might apply to commercial organizations. Consider using the outline below to better focus your paper on this complex topic:
II. Review and discuss the organization that had a cyber breach.
III. Explain the importance of cyber defenses as it related to the cyber breach under discussion.
IV. Discuss the applicable government requirements.
