In this paper, the writer explains that given the highly confidential nature of the content management, pricing, product, service and distribution data delivered to Ford Motor Company locations and the applications for order status, online ordering and quoting being central to the structure of the company, there are many business and security risks of propagating these tools to their dealers. The writer notes that security risks, internal risks of embezzlement and fraud, risks of valuable pricing and volume data being comprised, and the risks of a natural disaster all must specifically be planned for in any risk assessment. The writer concludes that managing risk by focusing on the value of assets and the need to protect core intellectual properties is a core requirement for Ford going forward.
