Abstract:
This paper will explore cyber breaches, and the ethics behind a company’s decisionmaking when it comes to cyber security. At a time when cyber attacks and breaches against wellknown, and reputable companies were at an all-time high, an interest to study different cyber breaches and a company’s reaction to the cyber breach began to develop. In order to analyze the various cyber attacks that had taken place in recent years, a case study was completed, examining three different companies in North America that had gone through a cyber attack – Target, Ashley Madison, and Liverpool. Additionally, research of the different types of cyber attacks and the various tactics companies utilize to avoid a cyber attack was conducted. The research was guided by the question of whether Target, Ashley Madison, and Liverpool were ethical in their response that followed their respective cyber breaches. Thus, this paper will discuss the many facets of cyber security most relevant to companies, in addition to an ethical analysis of each company’s actions following their respective cyber breach.
