I’m working on a writing discussion question and need support to help me understand better.

Moral and ethical requirements should serve as drivers which encourage a business to invest in or spend money on cybersecurity products, services, and programs.
You have been invited to participate in a round table discussion on the above topic at a conference on Best Practices for IT Security Management. For this activity you must prepare a 3 to 5 paragraph briefing statement which answers the following questions. You must use and cite information from the weekly readings.
