For your reply, select a currently well-known company in one of the following industries/sectors on which to focus.
Discuss why your vulnerability/threat selection is relevant to the industry selected.

Websites to get you started:

Discuss the measures you would take to mitigate this most important vulnerability and a threat to your organization.
Based on the well-known Linux toolkit, what tool(s) would you use to support your approach? For example, if you selected Authentication and Authorization as your area of concern – you might select a Password tool like “John the Ripper” to support your concern.
