Case Study 3: Boss, I Think Someone Stole Our Customer Data
ACC 571 Forensic Accounting
15-May-12













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......

...Karim Zayed April 22nd, 2010 Environmental Conservation Jason Vokoun Case Study 3 In the Northwest region of the United States there is a large snaking river that covers a lot of groundin four different states. The river is named characteristically “Snake River”. In the middle of the 1990’s we saw a lot of controversial talk over the four large dams placed in different parts of the River. We continue to hear talks more than a decade later about the possible removal of these dams. The dams bring a lot of money to the Northwest region and support a lot of jobs among, farmers, barge operators, and people who work at the dam themselves. This is not to mention that it supports recipients of hydroelectric power in this region and the removal would leave them without energy; in this case without clean energy. However these dams have also affected many other people who live in this region but not for the better. Native Americans who ritually let the first Salmon pass up the river have been hurting for some time. They say their soul is weak and their main source of food is no longer plentiful like it used to be. The Native Americas went through some hard times when the government told them they couldn’t fish for these Salmon anymore because they were closed to being endangered. I’m hoping my thoughts can persuade you to remove the dams and let the wild salmon swim freely again. Imagine having a main source of food for the whole tribe and the government who has...

Week 3 Case Study

...Week 3 Case study BYOD has the potential for big cost savings because organizations that let employees bring their own devices to work don't waste money on corporate phones. Plus, when an employee can work from a device of his own choosing, it's more enjoyable than being forced to use a corporate-issued device. That means happier and more productive users. Another advantage of BYOD is that it supports a mobile and cloud-focused IT strategy. From their personal mobile devices, employees can access their work in the cloud, further improving productivity. The overall BYOD benefits are that they save the company money and they make workers happy. There are however four big BYOD risks. Think about how you'll pay for services. Users might pay for devices, but who's going to pay for the voice and data plans? There are a couple of ways you can handle cost-sharing, but it's important to pick one and get users to agree to it.  You're going to have to draft acceptable use and security policies that include the consequences of violation. Then you need to train users and help desk staff on best practices and support. You'll have to know how to handle the biggest  BYOD challenges, security.

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).

...Natural Disaster                                      Natural disaster is the consequence when a natural hazard (e.g., volcanic eruption or earthquake or hurricanes ) affects humans. Human vulnerability, caused by the lack of appropriate emergency management, leads to financial, environmental, or human impact. The term natural has consequently been disputed because the events simply are not hazards or disasters without human involvement. Justification of the problem : The resulting loss depends on the capacity of the population to support or resist the disaster: their resilience. This understanding is concentrated in the formulation: "disasters occur when hazards meet vulnerability". A natural hazard will hence never result in a natural disaster in areas without vulnerability, e.g., strong earthquakes in uninhabited areas. List of Alternatives : 1. The disaster affected population actively participate in the assessment , design , implementation , monitoring and evaluating of the assistance program 2. We hold ourselves accountable to both those we seek to assist and those from whom we accept resources 3. Request implementing organizations to ensure , to the greatest possible to extend , adequate involvement of beneficiaries in the design , implementation , monitoring and evaluation of humanitarian response Evaluate Alternatives: First alternative :each CEO or the responsible of taking the decision must be careful of the decision which he takes to avoid...

...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...

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.

...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.

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.

...Ashley Schenk Liberty University BUSI 642 3 June 2012 Case Study 3 Building Assets to Ensure That the Lowest-Level Employees Are Not Left Behind According to the case study, managers are undoubtedly conscious of the convincing indication that authorizes that companies stand to increase when they distribute their profits with personnel. Furthermore, the article demonstrates how managers are mindful of the disagreement that to interest favorably experienced workers, companies must offer bonuses like higher salaries and stock options. This study detonates the misunderstanding that fiscal incentives function too inversely across the corporate scale to be exchangeable to low-level employees. Through widespread examination of asset building throughout all stages of the business, this study determines how one company decreased their turnover rates in half and reduced accident rates as well as training and recruitment expenses. There are several challenges of designing an asset-building program presented in this case study. Managers have a responsibility to cultivate a work atmosphere where the employee meets the requirements of the organization, and the organization meets the necessities of the employee. How to choose the right incentives so the profit sharing plan will motivate the employees is a difficult decision for any organization. In this case study, profit at the bottom of the ladder, building assets, linking asset building programs to improved performance are...
