Project 1: Vulnerability And Threat Assessment Step 12

You have reached the final step. Use the Final Vulnerability and Threat Assessment Report template in preparing the final report. In APA style, write an overview and compile all the sections prepared throughout the project into a report according to the template.

Since this report will be delivered to Maria and other top executives, tailor your writing to the appropriate audience. Be sure that coherent paragraphs or points are developed so that each is internally unified, functioning as part of the whole document.
