No one ever arrested a computer for computer crime. The real threat to information systems security comes from people, not computers. That's why students need to understand both the technical implementation of security controls, as well as the softer human behavioral and managerial factors that contribute to the theft and sabotage of proprietary data. Addressing both the technical and human side of information systems security, Dhillon's "Principles of Information Systems Security" helps future managers understand the broad range of technical, managerial, ethical, and legal issues related to IS security, and equips them with specific tools and techniques to support effective IS security management. Key Features Balanced coverage addresses the social and technical nature of IS security. Takes a managerial orientation, presenting key security challenges that information technology managers commonly face. Provides an analytical framework to conceptualize IS security problems. Draws on a range of disciplines, such as computer science, sociology, law, anthropology, and behavioral science. Cases put the theoretical material in real-life context. Gurpreet Dhillon is a Professor of Information Systems in the School of Business, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the "Journal of Information System Security," is the North American Regional Editor of the "International Journal of Information Management, " and sits on the editorial board of "MISQ Executive."

The idea of Business Rules has been around for a while. Simply put, a Business Rule is a statement that defines or constrains some aspect of the business. In practice they are meant to reduce or eliminate the delays, waste, and frustration associated with the IT department having to be involved with almost every action affecting an organization's information systems. The advent of Web services has created renewed interest in them. There are now several well established rules-based products that have demonstrated the effectiveness of their use. But until now there has not been a definitive guide to Business Rules. Ron Ross, considered to be the father of Business Rules, will help organizations apply this powerful solution to their own computer system problems. This book is intended to be the first book that anyone from an IT manager to a business manager will read to understand what Business Rules are, and what how they can be applied to their own situation.

Enterprises, from small to large, evolve continuously. As a result, their structures are transformed and extended continuously. Without some means of control, such changes are bound to lead to an overly complex, uncoordinated and heterogeneous environment that is hard to manage and hard to adapt to future changes. Enterprise architecture principles provide a means to direct transformations of enterprises. As a consequence, architecture principles should be seen as the cornerstones of any architecture. In this book, Greefhorst and Proper focus on the role of architecture principles. They provide both a theoretical and a practical perspective on architecture principles. The theoretical perspective involves a brief survey of the general concept of principle as well as an analysis of different flavors of principles. Architecture principles are regarded as a specific class of normative principles that direct the design of an enterprise, from the definition of its business to its supporting IT. The practical perspective on architecture principles is concerned with an approach to the formulation of architecture principles, as well as their actual use in organizations. To illustrate their use in practice, several real-life cases are discussed, an application of architecture principles in TOGAF is included, and a catalogue of example architecture principles is provided. With this broad coverage, the authors target students and researchers specializing in enterprise architecture or business information systems, as well as practitioners who want to understand the foundations underlying their practical daily work.
