You are working at ZepLane and learn that ZepLane’s computer system has been attacked by a computer virus from a cybercriminal. An employee of ZepLane inadvertently opened an email with an attachment that appeared to come from the State of Florida Division of Corporations for business registration renewals. The names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card information, and other personal information of all ZepLane customers have been compromised in the data breach.
