You were a part of a last-minute meeting that confirmed the need for action in the matter of customer information offered for sale on a public auction site. This was a risk that simply your company was not prepared/planned for. You “the CISO” of the company was assigned to research/investigate this incident. Knowing that the auction site was hosted on a server owned by a company outside of the U.S., what best practices would you follow to investigate this case? Which law enforcement agency do you think you should consult? On what factors do you base that recommendation?

Create a post of a minimum of 250 words answering the below discussion points (found immediately below the following instructions).
Discussion Topic 1—(Contributory Negligence—Should It Be Changed?)
No unread replies.No replies.
Maryland and 4 other jurisdictions, of 51 (50 states plus D.C.) use contributory negligence. The other 46 jurisdictions use comparative negligence, either pure or modified.
In November of 2010, Court of Appeals Chief Judge Robert M. Bell sent a letter to the Judiciary’s Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure to determine how a change could be made ”…if the Court were to consider replacing the doctrine of contributory negligence, a common law doctrine in Maryland, with some sort of comparative fault.”
In February 2011, Delegate Benjamin F. Kramer introduced a bill which would require, by statute, that Maryland continue to use contributory negligence. It did not pass.
On April 15, 2011, the Rules Committee issued its report which recommended no change be made by rule and further indicated, if any change were to be made, it should properly be made by either the Maryland Legislature or by a Court of Appeals case.
Other states have used one of these two methods.
On September 10, 2012, the Court of Appeals of Maryland heard oral arguments in the case of Coleman v. Soccer Association of Columbia on the topic. You must watch a Webcast of the arguments by Googling Maryland Courts, then to Courts at the top of the page, then to Court of Appeals, then to Webcasts, then to Oral Argument Archives, then to September 2012 term, then scroll all the way down to the Coleman case (No. 9) on 9-10-2012. When you watch you can hear arguments on both sides of the issue.
Here is a link: https://youtu.be/dkOX4u1YOSI
Use your cursor to slide the progress bar back to the beginning of the oral arguments.
During the oral arguments you will hear the term, UCATA. This is the Uniform Contribution Among Tortfeasors Act.
The opinions were filed on July 9, 2013. You must read the opinions of the Coleman case (there are 3—one majority, one dissenting and one concurring) and decide which you support.
Here is the link to the opinions: https://mdcourts.gov/data/opinions/coa/2013/9a12.pdf
You can also use Google to help find information, both pro and con, to help you form an opinion.
Discussion Points:
Do you believe the Maryland Legislature should change from contributory negligence to comparative negligence and more importantly, why?
And also, if your answer is yes, which type—pure or modified—would you choose, and why?
Lastly, what was your impression of the oral arguments in the Court of Appeals?

am looking for a 700 word response to the questions ″Do you believe Columbus should be remembered as a hero or a villain″ OR ″Should the United States celebrate Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples Day″ Step 1: Research, use the sources provided on Canvas. What is the perspective of the video Columbus: What Really Happened? What are the two main arguments of the Ted Ed Columbus Court Case. Do any of these perspectives help to support the main idea of your paper? Check all of the sources provided and summarize all useful information to support your argument. Step 2: Select the primary (main) 3 arguments that you will use to support your perspective. These 3 points will make up the body of your paper. I would shoot for around 200 words for each point. (For example, I might make the argument that Columbus did not actually discover America. I would then go into detail about how the Vikings made initial contact with Native Americans.) If I need to beef up these arguments and add to
