Read the Equifax Data Breach case and write a paper answering the following the following three questions: Discuss the moral issues in this case and whether Equifax’s actions constitute a moral failing. Should companies like Equifax be compelled to announce data breaches to the public within a certain time frame (e.g., 72 hours after discovery)? What would be the downside of legalizing such a requirement? In your opinion, why was security so lax at Equifax and how can this laxity be remedied?
The answer to the first question is worth 34 points, and both questions two and three are worth 33 points each. Review the attached grading rubric to determine the requirements for answering each question.
