From the Paper:

"The premise in which Walter Widget operates is not secured. The building does not have an alarm system that protecting from burglary and forced entry. It is important for the building to be secured in order to protect employees as well as the information available in the computer networks. The building has four entry points that are all unsecured including the two staff entries, the main entry, loading dock and the cafeteria entry.
"The neighborhood where the building is located is a low-income area. This complicates matters because despite the fact that no incidents have not been reported so far, does not mean that it will remain that way. It is evident that the neighborhood is quickly evolving downward due to deteriorating economic conditions. Crime for the areas is increasing gradually in all categories. The employees' parking lot is most vulnerable due to the prevailing conditions in the area and the high rates of autos and scrap metal thefts.
"In addition, the firm has over 200 workers and this is a large number considering the fact that they are not protected against any eventuality. The firm needs to take measure such as educating the worker on patient security issues. Nonetheless, the firm has not adapted secure hiring and training methods consistent with the latest security requirement as defined by OSHA."
