Recommended Changes to the Service Level AgreementThe consolidated assets of the firms will be documented then compared against theexisting documented authentication processes, applications installed and hardware currently inuse. Datanal will take the responsibility for creating a set of updated ACLs that are necessary tothe further security of the system. Datanal will use these ACLs to give requisite access to thevarious users on the consolidated network. The process of Third Party Verification (TPV) will beused to perform background checks on all the employees, so that the standards oforganization’s confidentiality and integrity are up to the industry’s strict standards.
