Scenario

UNFO traditionally has been a brick-and-mortar retailer, and the management has experiences

of associated business risks such as employee theft and shoplifting. However, as the

organization moves into the e-commerce model, new risks will be introduced to the

organization. As the junior information security analyst, it will be your role to summarize the

business impact of these new risks, the motivating factors that one may have to exploit

vulnerabilities, and how the risks can be mitigated.
