Research recent cyber breaches that have occurred with different companies. Select a company that had a cyber breach and consider what happened and what could have been done differently (examples include Sony, Maersk, Saks, Lord & Taylor, Sacramento Bee, TicketFly, Panera, Facebook, Target, Under Armour, and Equifax). Given that cyber breaches are more common, write about the importance of cyber defenses and organizational hardening for an organization’s supply chain. In your paper, consider the government requirements that are currently in place and how these might apply to commercial organizations. Consider using the outline below to better focus your paper on this complex topic:
I. Introduction
II. Review and discuss the organization that had a cyber breach.
III. Explain the importance of cyber defenses as it related to the cyber breach under discussion.
IV. Discuss the applicable government requirements.
V. Conclusion
** Refrain from excessive use of quotes in your response (less than 5%).

Review the case entitled “Chapter 10 Case: Oakhurst Dairy: Operations Management

Review the case entitled “Chapter 10 Case: Oakhurst Dairy: Operations Management and Sustainability” in the Sustainable Business Case Book. Analyze the case responding to the following questions:
What challenges face Oakhurst in 2011 and beyond?
How do Oakhurst’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions through operation changes help address the challenges?
The Natural Resources Defense Council’s November 2007 Report stated, “Although there are some exceptions, in most cases, locally produced food proves the best choice for minimizing global warming and other pollutants. In fact, another study showed that when you combined all locally grown food, it still produced less carbon dioxide emissions in transport than any one imported product. The effects all this pollution can have on our health may be reflected in high rates of asthma and other respiratory symptoms, as well as increased school absence days for children.”
How does Oakhurst’s sustainable business model help to support the Natural Resources Defense Council’s findings that buying local not only helps Maine farmers but also helps the environment?
What can people do to reduce their own carbon emissions? Could this reduce their own costs and help them to save money? How?
