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.

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.
