Answer the Following
QUESTION 1- Obligation to Protect Consumers’ Personal/Financial Information
Disclosing our personal and financial information to corporations via online portals, apps and websites has become a necessity of modern life and can hardly be described as optional. Whether we are communicating with our doctors, booking a hotel room or buying a school textbook, online disclosure of personal and financial information is required. Even our employers are requiring us to disclose our personal and financial data to human resource contractors.
Hacking and theft of our personal and financial information is also a fact of modern life. We are understandably angry when we learn that corporations who gathered our personal and financial information did not sufficiently invest in cybersecurity safeguards to prevent hacking.
A federal court has decided that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has authority to regulate and punish corporations as it pertains to protection of our personal and financial data. In a first of its kind case, the FTC fined Wyndham Worldwide Corporation for lax cybersecurity, leading to three (3) hacking incidents in two (2) years. Please review the link below regarding the case.

Many companies believe they should not be required to disclose hacking incidents to their affected customers. Additionally, many companies argue that it is unfair to be fined by the FTC when hackers steal information.
1. Discuss the arguments corporations can make in support of their position that they do not have a duty to disclose hacking incidents to their affected customers?
2. Explain why the court in FTC v. Wyndham Worldwide Corporation agreed that the FTC was justified in fining Wyndham Worldwide Corporation?
QUESTION 2 – Child Labor and Cultural Relativism
Those living in wealthy countries nearly universally condemn businesses that employ impoverished children under the age of 14 in poor countries. Contrarily, families living in poor countries are grateful that businesses come to their countries and offer work to their children.
1. Explain why this division of opinion is a classic example of cultural relativism?
2. Presenting supporting and opposing arguments (for and against), discuss why a business headquartered in a wealthy nation can employ children under the age of 14?
3. Discuss what specific standards and restrictions should govern the practice of using child labor.

Completing the paper
In order to complete this paper, you will want to first read the module, Learn How to Support What You Write, as this assignment requires you to use the course material and research to support what you write. Also,
· Read and use the grading rubric while completing the paper to ensure all requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade.

If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-third-person.
· Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.
· Paraphrase and do not use direct quotation marks. Paraphrase means you do not use more than four consecutive words from a source document. Instead put a passage from a source document into your own words and attribute the passage to the source document. Not using direct quotation marks means that there should be no passages with quotation marks and instead the source material is paraphrased as stated above. Note that a reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. You may not use more than four consecutive words from a source document, as doing so would require direct quotation marks. Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks. If more than four consecutive words are used from source documents, this material will not be included in the grade and could lead to allegations of academic dishonesty.
· You are expected to use the case scenarios, research and weekly course material to develop the analysis and support the reasoning. Material used from a source document must be cited and referenced. A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.
