For the week eleven discussion board I would like you to take a look at a company website of your choice. The company must be publicly traded. Explore their website to learn more about the company. After researching the company answer the 4 questions listed below.
Be sure to provide specific details in your post that you found on the website for the company you chose. Be sure to provide a link to the website of the company you chose to use for this assignment.
1. What do you think are the company’s overall, long term goals?
2. Develop a balanced scorecard. Include two to five measures in each of the scorecard’s perspectives.
3. How would the balanced scorecard affect the way managers develop the company’s strategy?
4. Explain the concept of lead and lag measures in the context of the scorecard you developed.
Do you believe that all data should be encrypted? Many computing professionals think this is a good idea. But a small number of computing experts feel that no data should be encrypted—that all data and software should be openly available to anyone who wants it. Explain your answer (whether you believe all data should or should not be encrypted).
In this module, you learned that random numbers (or, at least, pseudorandom numbers) are essential in cryptography, but it is extremely difficult even for powerful hardware and software to generate them. Go online and conduct research on random number generators. What are the different uses of these tools besides cryptography? How do they work? Explain your answer using your own words in 2-3 paragraphs.
