Evaluate the obligation Flayton Electronics has to its customers to protect their private data.

All client data needs to be kept secure all of the time. Doing this helps to protect company operations from being slowing down because the firm looks bad in the eyes of the public. Flayton Electronic has an obligation to protect all client information so that their needs are met without and drama or dilemmas. The firm does not want to have an instance on their hands where personal client data or company records were compromised.
Flayton Electronic needs to protect the complete client base from any type of impending exposure. Adequate protection should be offered with the credit card despite the fact that the card is also covered by Flayton Electronics individual banks. The action of shielding the confidential data of clients would reclaim the representation of the company. Securing date can be protection of the data is made possible through use of refined examination tools that would identify any abnormal patterns before they had the chance to surface.

In the beginning stages when the business was entering into an agreement with well-regarded clients, the customer data was to be confined from other outside entities. It is the duty of Flayton Electronics to ensure the client records are kept safe. An envisioned security breach might have been looked into to prevent the firm from losing their profits. Illegal use of any client information is considered an offense committed against them without their consent. To offset this problem, authentication of credit card transaction needs to be given to the bank during the time of procurement so Flayton Electronics can determine the legitimacy of the purchase.

...Case Study 3-6 2/19/2012 After the company found out what Jones had been doing it is their responsibility to confront the employee. OHSA should then be called to come and inspect the break room as well as the coffee pot. After, their investigation they need to then let all employees know if they have come into contact with the coffee so if they had drank it they would know. In the case of O’Connor vs Ortega this would be the same outcome because the health and safety of the employees would overrule Jones saying his privacy was invaded. Employees could become ill because of the unsanitary break room. So I think that the courts would rule in favor of Mustapha and Pope setting up the recording device in the break room. I do not think they should be disciplined but I do think that they should be brought in and told that the next time they feel something is going on that is wrong that they should contact OSHA. That way if there is any wrong doing there would not be any loose ends and the could do an inspections and make everything official. Educating everyone on what OSHA is there for and the consequences that employees or employers suffer if they do break the OSHA act of 1970. Also to let employees and employers know the severity of their actions whether it be a practical joke or an act of revenge.\ After seeing Jones filing and seeing that even though he may not have a lot of bad marks knowing that he was turned down for a position would be......

Case Study Week 3

...Case Study Week 3 Principles of Info System Security Professor Gross by Nick Post Concerning the research collaboration of ABC Institute of Research and XYZ Inc., there are two standard methods that shall be considered for the encryption of all sensitive data being transmitted over the Internet. There is symmetric encryption and asymmetric encryption. It is the intention of this paper to describe both methods and give an opinion on which method to use to secure the sensitive date. When a symmetric encrypted key is used, both parties share the same key to both encrypt and decrypt data. Since symmetric encryption's use-case is to share information between users, each has to posses a shared key. Although a symmetric key requires less computer resources, is simplistic and easy to understand, the utmost security measures should be set in place to ensure the safety and secrecy of the shared key by all collaborators. Should the key become compromised in some way, all sensitive data will be compromised. Also, exchanging the secret key over the Internet or over a large network is extremely risky because it can become intercepted by an attacker who could then use that key to decrypt the shared data. There is an alternative to this type of encryption, however, that could be more secure, though it poses its own disadvantages: asymmetric encryption. An asymmetric encrypted method relies on a public and private key. The public key is available to anyone who might......

...Melvin Parker Columbia Southern University Case Study #3 1. Why did Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis seek a settlement rather than let the patent infringement case go to trial? Brystol-Meyers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis seeked settlement rather than the patent infringement because Apotex had received approval from Food and Drug Administration. The approval allowed Apotex to market the generic version of Plavix at its own risk. Bristol-Meyers also found out that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) had expressed opposition to agreements that restricted the introduction of generic drugs which might become anti-competitive. With those reasons, Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis want to seek a settlement with Apotex due to FTC approval, delaying the launch of Apotex generic drug until its patent expire that could ensure a continued monopoly until expiration. In addition that, Plavix was the best-selling of Bristol Myers Squibb’s drug and was crucial to the success of the company. Plavix was marketed in the United States by Brystol-Myers Squibb, and U.S. sales were 3.5 billion in 2005 with worldwide sales of over 6 billion. Baron (2010). 2. Should Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis have attempted to pay Apotex to prevent it from launching a generic version of Plavix? No. According to Baron (2010) Apotex had invested millions of dollars to construct production facilities and begin to produce clopidogrel bisulfate in late 2005.......

...Cindy Le A&P 211 June 9, 2014 Case Study #3 1. In the NoPain drug trials, phase I clinical trials did not have a placebo group because different phases are testing different aspects of the drugs. Phase I was meant to first screen the drug safety for human subjects. In phase II, the research was meant to see who would benefit from taking the drug, the benefits realized, and best administrative routes of the drug. 
 2. MedPharm could not reduce their test group to only 50 volunteers during phase II and phase III because they need a larger group to be able to distinguish factors such what kinds of people would benefit from the drug or test the different age groups. By having a large sample group, this will allow for higher degree of statistical confidence is the drug’s ability to work in a wide range of cancer patients. 
 3. The NoPain medication should be classified as a palliative treatment because it is aimed at alleviating pain in cancer patients.
 4. Based on reading this article, I would tell Mae that the pill that she takes to control her blood pressure and diabetes is expensive because it has gone through a long and expensive process to make sure that the drug she is taking is safe and effective. I would tell her about the years dedicated to research as well as the millions/billions of dollars spent on paying volunteers, chemist, doctors and researchers to ensure the safety of the pill she is taking today.

Case Study 3

...Case study 3 1.) who needs a Porsche? Porsche is a unique car company, because their customers don’t necessarily need a Porsche but they want the luxury of a Porsche. The customer can find value in the Porsche simply by its name and the other people that you see driving a Porsche. No one sees someone driving a Porsche that does not think to themselves that person must be successful, and that is value in its self. The price also has to do with the value, because Porsche must set the price high enough that only a certain type of individual can afford it, but not so high that no one will buy it. 2.) The type of customer that wants Cayenne is probably someone that has a family, but still wants the prestige of driving a Porsche. They are able to find value in all the features that the Cayenne offers. 3.) I think the concept that explains this the best is Maslow’s Hierarchy of need. Mainly only concerning esteem needs and social need. The reasoning behind this is because now that Porsche was offering a lower priced product it allowed a whole new group of people to but the car even if they could barely afford it. They might buy the Porsche for their social needs if they are trying to fit into a certain class that most people in that class drive high-end luxury cars. They might buy a Porsche for social needs if having something such as a Porsche make them feel better as a person. 4.) Positive attitudes are made toward Porsche mainly through their ability to ...

... Case Study 3: Green Computing Research Project – Part 5 Tamyra Sampson Strayer University Dr. Hart CIS 517 August 31, 2014 INTRODUCTION Quality is an important part to any project. Quality is defined as “the totality of characteristics of an entity that bar on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs” (ISO8042:1994) or “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirements” (ISO9000:2000) (Schwalbe, 294). The purpose of project quality management is to ensure that the project deliverables are met without detriment to the project. There are three main processes to project quality management: planning quality, performing quality assurance, and performing quality control. Planning quality is anticipating challenges and situations that will require actions that ensure the intended outcome. Performing quality assurance centers on the quality of standards for the project. Performing quality control improves quality; however, the main outcomes are acceptance decisions, rework and process adjustments. Quality control has seven basic tools and techniques that can be applied to information technology projects. Those seven tools are: * Cause-and-effect diagrams * Control Charts * Run Chart * Scatter Diagram * Histogram * Pareto Chart * Flowcharts HISTOGRAM Of the Seven Basic Tools of Quality, the histogram is a bar graph of a distribution of variables (Schwalbe, 304).

...Case Study 3 1. Discuss the four components of corporate social responsibility and how they relate to a charitable campaign such as (Product) RED. How does participation in a cause-marketing event contribute to a company's social responsibility? What role does sustainability play? The four components of corporate social responsibility are Economic responsibilities by being profitable to the company, Legal responsibilities by obeying the law or playing by the rule, Ethical responsibilities by being ethical in carrying business and Philanthropic responsibilities by being a good corporate citizen and also by improving the quality and standard of living of the community and society. Economic performance is important as the foundation of the other three responsibilities, because if it does not achieve good performance, the other three responsibilities will be questionable. This company shows their participation in a cause-marketing event as the core values for this campaign and that not only the companies but the consumers can contribute to the cause to fight HIV/AIDS. Bono and Bobby Shriver, came up with a product that showed that companies could still make money and contribute to a great cause. Sustainability play is latest theory for social responsibility. It is the idea which suggests that business organizations which are more socially responsible will eventually outperform their peers, rivals or competitors by focusing on the world’s social problem and seeing......

...Bio 211 Jan 26, 2015 Case Study 3 1. Phase II of the NoPain clinical trials requires a placebo group, whereas phase I does not because the focus of phase I is about safety and phase II is about effectiveness. 2. MedPharm didn’t just save money by limiting phases II and III to 50 subjects each because they needed statistically accurate data as regards to demographics. 3. I would classify NoPain as a palliative treatment for cancer because it is used to help alleviate pain after the disease has started. 4. I would explain to Mae how the different phases and how much time and money goes into each phase. 5. Some suitable techniques to sterilize cotton swabs would be chemicals, like alcohol, or UV light. Some non suitable techniques would be dry heat, because it would ignite the cotton, and filtration, because it will just tear the cotton. 6. Immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy are all used to treat cancer. 7. Nosocomial lung infection refers to any pneumonia contracted by a patient in a hospital at least 48–72 hours after being admitted. It is thus distinguished from community-acquired pneumonia. It is usually caused by a bacterial infection, rather than a virus. 8. The physician would use orally by pills or an oral patch because it is much faster. 9.

...Candace Dymally 15 September 2015 Professor Miller ACC 4321 Case Study 3-5 International versus U.S. Standards Financial information presented in financial statements require key elements that make it valuable to users to derive meaningful conclusions about the trends in an entity's financial performance and position over time. The conceptual framework categorizes these elements into fundamental or enhancing qualitative characteristics, depending on how they affect the decision usefulness of information. One of the qualitative characteristics stated is comparability. For accounting information to be comparable, accounting standards and policies must be applied consistently from one period to another and from one region to another. In this case, the financial statements of a company operating in Australia would comparable to a U.S. company’s financial statement. IASB is attempting to bridge the gap between U.S. GAAP and international accounting principles which would make it easier for companies to interact with one another despite the location. Reliability is another characteristic of financial accounting information. Information is reliable when a user can depend upon it to be materially accurate and faithfully represent the information that it claims to present. Significant misstatements or omissions in financial statements reduce the reliability of information contained in them. The amounts reported by U.S. companies for property, plant, and equipment......

This article discusses that you need to know the members of your target market. In this case, as Medina (2011) covered in her article, the management staff of the casino looked around and discovered they had a large Hispanic population. This as it turned out was a shock considering that prior research suggested the Hispanic population typically don’t gamble. Since the casino already had a considerable Hispanic clientele, as KnowThis.com suggests, the casino can exploit this information to target their current customers and recruit previous and even potential customers. Another way to do this according to KnowThis.com is to use influencers on the target. The casino invested in signs in Spanish, Spanish speaking blackjack dealers, announcements in Spanish and probably one of the biggest influencers, Spanish entertainers. In Medina’s (2011) article she tells us how the casino sold out all the rooms in the hotel and had a full audience in attendance during these shows, numbers any casino in Las Vegas would kill for.
