Please note: In this assignment, you will be referring to the result of your Unit 4 Team Collaboration assignment, but this is an individual assignment.
Based on the case example in which you participated in Unit 4 Team Collaboration assignment, write a Communication to the client (either “O’Reilly Design” or “Anglia Vending Services”), explaining the increasingly number of cybercrimes incidents and the need to take a proactive stance. Examples of cybercrime related incidents include, illegal computer intrusions to intellectual property rights abuses, economic espionage, online extortion, identity theft, denial of service, cyber stalking, virus and worms, and phishing to mention just a few. Choose one (minimum) of the aforementioned incidents and make a convincing argument to the client about the potential risks and dire consequences if the organization becomes hacked. Assume for this assignment that the client has a web presence. To further make your case, illustrate with graphics or charts statistical data or reports about the trends and occurrences of the current cybercrimes. Lastly, provide a sound recommendation to the client about proactive steps that they need to implement to help lessen the possibility of being hacked.
