In particular, each bidder i is subject to a budget wi: in no circumstances can a bidder with budget wi pay more than wi. If bidder i were to bid more than wi and defaults, then a (small) penalty is imposed on her.
Assume that each bidder’s budget wi is also drawn from a uniform distribution on [0, 1]. Assume that each bidder’s budgets are independently distributed (and are also independently distributed from the signals). At the beginning of the auction (i.e., before submitting bids) each bidder learns her own valuation vi and her own budget wi, but not the signals and budgets of her opponents. After observing her signal and budget, each bidder has to choose which bid to submit.
Suppose that the auction format is a second-price auction: the player who submitted the highest bid wins, but pays a price equal to the second highest bid.

Show that, for each bidder, bidding her own budget always gives a higher payoff than bidding above her budget.

Consider a bidder with valuation vi ≤ wi. Show that, in this case, bidding her own valuation gives her a higher payoff than any other bid. Hint: recall the arguments we used in class to show that in a standard second-price auction it is optimal for each bidder to submit a bid equal to her valuation.

Consider a bidder with valuation vi > wi. Show that, in this case, bidding her own budget gives the bidder a higher payoff than any other bid.

Assume you have been hired as a consultant in the IT Department at Northcentral University. One of the University’s current goals is to minimize security threats and prevent breaches.

Select one major incident to research regarding technological breaches. Identify the company that was affected and then describe this incident and why you selected it.
Explain the implications associated with this breach, specifically in terms of privacy laws and violations of the law.
Analyze the impact that these technological breaches have on consumer safety and well-being.
Recommend further actions to protect the privacy of clients.

Support your meeting notes with a minimum of three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
