A big problem for companies is that information systems are vulnerable to hackers and fraud. If a companies system is hacked then all their financial and customer information is at risk to been seen by any amount of people.

Companies are responsible for correcting information systems to keep out hackers and in order to avoid loss of revenue and customer loyalty.

In this situation customers should be notified of the system failure and the company are doing to fix the problem.
