      This chapter discusses system threats.  Which threat could harm an organization the most?  Explain the threat and why you chose this threat as the most detrimental to an organization.  What should a security officer do to help prevent this threat?

      I beleive the most harmful threat would be backdoors. Backdoors are created in order to speed up development and hotfixes, which is a benefit to developers and will be reluctant to remove so they can have an easier job in the future, also to meet deadlines a faster solution is needed. Usually, developers are not the one in charge of security concerns, so it is treated as an afterthought. A way to prevent such threats would be to properly tag such shortcuts and remove before pushing the code into production.
