Security in Information Systems: A Guide for Business and Accounting

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

With the advent of electronic commerce, and the increasing sophistication of the information systems used in business organizations, control and security have become key management issues. Responsibility for ensuring that controls are well designed and properly managed can no longer simply be delegated to the technical experts. It has become an area in which the whole management team needs to be involved.

This comprehensive review, written for the business reader, includes coverage of recent developments in electronic commerce, as well as the more traditional systems found in many organizations, both large and small.

Intended for any manager whose work depends on financial or other business information, it includes case studies, summaries and review questions, making it equally suitable as a source text for students of business studies at postgraduate or advanced level.
