Completing these steps and monitoring each risk properly will hopefully avoid any further damage to the company and its reputation. Determine if budget / schedule changes are necessary and explain why. Budget and schedule changes would be necessary. If the top threat of an additional security breach has occurred, funds would need to be reallocated to fund damage control efforts. The initial budget of $100,000 would need to be reassessed and the training budget may need to be cut in order to allow funding geared towards any software needed. The Public Relations contractor may also need to reevaluate the situation to suggest the most effective way to relay the information to customers.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
