As a member of the Acme security team, you need to gather information on the current Acme network in order to protect it. Because you are leading the hack into Acme, you are not given any specific information about the network configuration. Acme is treating you as though you are an outsider. Your team must learn all it can about the network. What operating systems are used? What ports are open that can be exploited? What network devices are used? These are just a few of the questions that need to be answered.
