This organization has known brand products across the world and expects top-secret methods for safeguarding proprietary information on its recipes and product lines. The Board of Directors request that their information security strategy be upgraded to allow greater opportunities of secure cloud collaboration between suppliers and resellers of their products. Another concern they have is the recent number of hacktivist attacks that have caused the network to fail across the enterprise. Their concern extends to making sure that they have controlled methods for accessing secured physical areas within their various regional facilities.
