Also making the list this week are Apple, which faces a lawsuit and a consumer petition over MacBook Pro keyboard issues; Symantec executives, who face a discretionary compensation freeze as part of an internal investigation; a system outage that knocked Nest devices offline; and the Chili's restaurant chain, which suffered a data security breach that compromised an undisclosed number of customer credit and debit cards.
