Prepare a 8- to 10-slide PowerPoint® presentation, including speaker notes, that identifies the possible risks to an organization in each of the following outsourcing situations:

  • The use of an external service provider for your data storage
  • The use of an enterprise service provider for processing information systems applications such as a payroll, human resources, or sales order taking
  • The use of a vendor to support your desktop computers
  • The use of a vendor to provide network support

Note:  Make sure you include at least one information security related risk for each situation above.

Include, in your presentation, a risk mitigation strategy for each risk identified. However, you may not propose to end outsourcing and bring the function in-house.
