You are an experienced employee of the DigiFirm Investigation Company. Chris, your team leader, said the company has a new potential client. Acme e-Goods is a well-known outfit that markets its products over the Internet. The company has a large-scale network that houses a great amount of sensitive customer information they want to protect.
