briefly describe that industry in today’s world and discuss any changes occurring within the industry


It is important to understand how compliance and penalties differ across statutes, regulations, and contractual obligations, as this will affect decisions that need to be made in security controls that an organization will need to implement and will also have an impact on performing an accurate risk assessment. In this assignment, you will provide a specific example of a statute, a regulation, and a contractual agreement for an industry of their choice. You will discuss the differences in the origin of each, the compliance requirements of each, and the penalties for each within that specific industry.
