submitted, in the 30-minute virtual meeting, you will need to present your findings to a

wide array of technical and non-technical people. You may choose any method of how

you deliver these findings and your response.

The roles that will be present in the virtual meeting are as follows:

Departmental member in charge of all IT Risk for the department (Risk Executive), a department IT
