Using the following case from Information Technology for Managers (2nd ed.),
Do the following in this week’s case discussion forum:
Collaborate with your peers in this week’s case discussion forum to research and summarize other hacks which have impacted either other private companies or government agencies.
Identify both the victim’s response to the cyberattack and any government response.
Compare and contrast other hacks to Sony’s experience in 2014.
This collaborative activity should provide you the foundation you’ll need to address the case questions in your analysis this week.
Then, answer the following (case questions):
Compare and contrast the hack experienced by Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 with other known hacks.
How did the U.S. government respond to the attack? Was the response appropriate?
How did Sony respond to the attack? Will Sony’s response encourage or discourage future attacks?
In what ways does the Sony hack reflect emerging cyberthreats that could be made on critical infrastructure?
What steps should be taken so that all businesses and the U.S. government can work together to prevent both real-world terrorist violence and cyberattacks?
Draft a 3-5 page position paper analysis for Sony’s Leadership leveraging what you have learned through collaboration, your own independent research, and the application of this week’s topics to analyize the above-mentioned case. Be sure to start your analysis with the points of this assignment in your final position paper (introduction, summary of the central issue, analysis, recommendations and conclusion). Be sure to cite your work appropriately using APA formatted citations and include a references page.
