The security-related information is presented to the AO in a security authorization package.You have been tasked to brief the manager/CFO or CEO of your company about authorizing your system, product, or service for operation.

Discuss any noncompliant security controls, based on the findings and recommendations to correct noncompliant security controls; any initial remediation actions and long-term tasks laid out in Plan of Actions & Milestones.Create a two- to three-page paper, not including title or reference pages, describing:
