  2. Critique the AUP you selected and provide recommendations for improving the AUP.
  3. Explain methods that organizations can implement to help ensure compliance with the AUP, mitigate their risk exposure, and minimize liability. Describe how your selected AUP accomplishes these goals.
  4. Describe methods for increasing the awareness of the AUP, and other policies, within the organization.
