    Cisco and ISS also had a responsibility to protect their own data and also the data of their clients to whom they provided cyber security. In future maybe the company would’ve changed its way without being exposed to lawsuits and hackers.

    Some organizations have included positions such as chief informations officer in their structures. Some organizations deliberately limit sharing of information and knowledge because of the threats associated with industrial espionage and concerns about diverting or overloading employees’ work-related attention (Hatala & Latta, 2009) .If an organization has ever found itself in a situation where its information has been obtained by people with bad intentions and who wished to use for undesirable activities then it would wiser for the board to try and put measures in place that will ensure that their information does not end up in the wrong hands. In my view this could have been the main reason why the council included clause 20.1 in the terms of service. This will then lead to the inclusion of clause 20.3 in the terms of service, as the council is trying to make employees aware of the consequences of going against the terms of clause of…

    A chain of command, which is defined as an order of authority and power organized, would usually be the answer to a majority of problems in the workplace. The issue is that when the chain of command fails or treats certain employees unfairly, not many other options are available. That is why whistleblowing is done, to fix issues as a last resort. Employees risk their jobs by going to the media and expressing the issues they deal with their workplace. Loyalty is clearly shown when an employee wants to fix an issue within the company, while they are still employed by the company and risk losing their position.…

    The same injuries causable by so-called vocational imposters may also be exacted by run-of-the-mill negligence. In this, all employees are reminded to stay current on professional certifications, industry knowledge, and safe work practices. Rampant fraudulent claims made by candidates in the hiring process are a chronic problem for organizations in America.
