Alan Calder ISO27001/ISO27002 a Pocket Guide - Second Edition. 2013

Protect your organisation's information assets using ISO27001:2013 Information is one of your organisation's most important resources. Keeping that information secure is therefore vital to your business. This handy pocket guide is an essential overview of two key information security standards that cover the formal requirements (ISO27001:2013) for creating an Information Security Management System (ISMS), and the best-practice recommendations (ISO27002:2013) for those responsible for initiating, implementing or maintaining it. Furthering the objectives of your organisation Information security means much more than a technology solution, and requires buy-in from senior managers and the collaboration of all staff in the organisation. For this reason, ISO27001 is not a one-size-fits-all solution, nor is it designed to be a static, fixed entity. By looking at ISO27001 and ISO27002 together, this pocket guide gives a wider view of what it means to implement an ISO27001 ISMS. Creating an ISMS based on ISO27001/ISO27002 will help you to: •improve efficiency by having systems and procedures in place, enabling you to focus more on your core business; •protect your information assets from a wide range of cyber threats such as criminal activity and fraud, user errors, outside attack, insider compromise and system failure; •manage risk systematically and put in place a plan to eliminate or reduce cyber threats to your organisation; •prepare for the worst, as ISO27001 requires you...

Zakariya Belkhamza Creating a Culture for Information Systems Success

It has been widely reported that issues related to organizational context appear frequently in discussions of information systems success. The statement that the information system did not fit the behavioral context in an organization is often part of the explanation of why particular information system encountered unanticipated resistance and never met expectation. While this context has been intensively studied, we still lack evidence on how this organizational context is affecting the success of information system from a managerial action perspective. This type of managerial involvement is often neglected to the extent that it became an essential obstacle to organizational performance. The objective of Creating a Culture for Information Systems Success is to assist CIOs and IT managers on how to use their managerial actions to create a suitable cultural environment in the organization, which leads to a successful implementation of information systems. This book will also provide guidelines for managers on how to create this organizational context, measure it, and ensure it leads to a successful implementation and use of information systems. The main theme is to explain how behavioral context of an organization led by their managers and executives would lead to the success of the information systems function.

Provides an important framework for data analysts in assessing the quality of data and its potential to provide meaningful insights through analysis Analytics and statistical analysis have become pervasive topics, mainly due to the growing availability of data and analytic tools. Technology, however, fails to deliver insights with added value if the quality of the information it generates is not assured. Information Quality (InfoQ) is a tool developed by the authors to assess the potential of a dataset to achieve a goal of interest, using data analysis. Whether the information quality of a dataset is sufficient is of practical importance at many stages of the data analytics journey, from the pre-data collection stage to the post-data collection and post-analysis stages. It is also critical to various stakeholders: data collection agencies, analysts, data scientists, and management. This book: Explains how to integrate the notions of goal, data, analysis and utility that are the main building blocks of data analysis within any domain. Presents a framework for integrating domain knowledge with data analysis. Provides a combination of both methodological and practical aspects of data analysis. Discusses issues surrounding the implementation and integration of InfoQ in both academic programmes and business / industrial projects. Showcases numerous case studies in a variety of application areas such as education, healthcare, official statistics, risk management and marketing surveys. Presents a review of software tools from the InfoQ perspective along with example datasets on an accompanying website. This book will be beneficial for researchers in academia and in industry, analysts, consultants, and agencies that collect and analyse data as well as undergraduate and postgraduate courses involving data analysis.

Torsten Kriedt Achieving Business Value in Information Security

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The beginning of the 21st century with the fear of the "Year 2000"-threat (Y2K) became a milestone for the "Information Age", a term coined for the post-industrial stage of leading countries „[…] when information and information technologies become the main strategic national resource which results in an avalanche growth of information dependence in all spheres of society and state activities.”. In organisations the awareness of the dependence on information has led to corporate initiatives to treat information as an asset, which includes various efforts for its protection. Management trends such as "knowledge management" have identified "knowledge sharing" as a new means for achieving competitive advantage, thus promoting information to be disseminated. Due to an ever closer relationship with customers, suppliers and even competitors, organisations have expanded their "information network" outside of the original boundaries. The dualism of protection of information assets on the one hand and a free flow of information has been identified to become a challenge for organisations, described as „[…] how to satisfy this need to share information without exposing the organization to undue risk.”. With the information society implying radical changes, the need to act has been accelerated by a new mindset reacting to the advent of "e-business". Information Security (InfoSec) is often mistaken to be a purely tech...

Joey Williams The Archaeology of Roman Surveillance in the Central Alentejo, Portugal

During the first century B.C.E. a complex system of surveillance towers was established during Rome's colonization of the central Alentejo region of Portugal. These towers provided visual control over the landscape, routes through it, and hidden or isolated places as part of the Roman colonization of the region. As part of an archaeological analysis of the changing landscape of Alentejo, Joey Williams offers here a theory of surveillance in Roman colonial encounters drawn from a catalog of watchtowers in the Alentejo, the artifacts and architecture from the tower known as Caladinho, and the geographic information systems analysis of each tower's vision. Through the consideration of these and other pieces of evidence, Williams places surveillance at the center of the colonial negotiation over territory, resources, and power in the westernmost province of the Roman Empire.

Shank Govindarajan, John Shank, Vijay Govindarajan Strategic Cost Management. The New Tool for Competitive Advantage

As often reported in Business Week and Fortune, most large companies today concede that their cost systems are desperately obsolete. In this eagerly awaited book, John Shank and Vijay Govindarajan, nationally known experts on the strategic use of cost information, address head-on the fundamental concepts of management accounting that are in desperate need of change. The authors demonstrate how strategic cost management, the first analytic framework to relate meaningful accounting information to a firm's business strategy, is revolutionizing accounting-and overall business practices in leading firms. With numerous extended examples including Ciba-Geigy, Ford, Texas Instruments, and many more, the authors show how the three key tools of strategic cost management-value chain analysis, strategic positioning analysis, and cost driver analysis-provide a sustainable competitive advantage over firms whose cost systems are in disarray.With persuasive evidence, Shank and Govindarajan demonstrate the strategic power of value chain analysis, i.e., linking external value creating activities all the way from basic raw materials, to component suppliers, and through to the ultimate end-use product delivered to the consumers. Next, they examine how cost management and cost control must be differentiated depending on the strategic positioning chosen by the firm, be it cost leadership or product differentiation. Finally, the authors offer penetrating in-sights on cost driver analysis using ...

Reyländer Sabine Scientific databases for gait analyses

The use of database for different kind of data is nowadays common. Especially in sectors, which work with a huge amount of data, databases are used. Such an example is a gait analysis laboratory. During one year a huge amount of data will be collected. Based on the amount and high quality of the data, they suits perfectly for a meaningful study. To enable such a scientific analysis, based on different scientific issues, the information has to be brought together and stored at one single place. This central storage of the data makes scientific studies time-saving and costs-saving. Based on the during this thesis developed concept of a scientific database and WIDAGA it is possible to draw samples from gait analysis data for different scientific analysis easily. The amount of data for scientific use can be extended easily be cooperation of different gait analysis laboratories. But in this case the data protection act has to be minded. Especially the rules for data sharing and data exchange have to be noted. Based on functionality of WIDAGA the economic efficiency of scientific studies in the gait analysis sector can be increased.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Multimedia, Internet, New Technologies, grade: 72% (Distinction), City University London (School of Informatics and School of Arts and Social Sciences), course: MSc Information, Communication and Society, language: English, abstract: This dissertation examines tweet content from key periods of the uprisings in Egypt and Syria of 2011 and 2012, generally known as the "Arab Spring". Some authors and the main-stream media have suggested that these uprisings were significantly influenced and organised by Twitter and subsequently referred to them as "Twitter Revolution". Other authors have strongly opposed this idea and attributed it to self-deception in the light of marvellous inventions of the Western World. They have suggested Twitter was predominantly used as an information-sharing network. In an effort to contribute data to this debate, this dissertation analyses tweet content from three different observation periods; two tweet datasets were collected from other academics and third one was crawled from the Twitter API; this process made use of the crawling tool cURL and the database software mongoDB.The combined tweet dataset contained about 1.9 million tweets out of which a sample of 1945 tweets was drawn.

Carl McGowan The Fundamentals of Financial Statement Analysis as Applied to the Coca-Cola Company

Recent stock market crises are exacerbated by investors who don't understand what has been happening to companies because investors lack an understanding of financial ratio analysis. Stock markets are efficient in that they incorporate, and even anticipate, information about companies based on financial accounting data provided by companies. However, market efficiency results from extensive analysis performed by financial analysts. Much of this financial analysis is based on the analysis of financial information provided by companies and analyzed using financial ratio analysis. This book provides a step-by-step demonstration of how to download data from Internet sources, transfer the data to a spreadsheet, and conduct a financial ratio analysis of any company. The book outlines the steps needed to perform a financial ratio analysis, the financial statements to be retrieved from EDGAR, and the five categories of financial ratios used in the financial analysis of the company. The data retrieved from the financial statements is copied to a worksheet and used to compute and graph the financial ratios. The ratios and graphs are used to determine the performance drivers of this company.

This book explores the impact of information systems on the management of North–South asymmetric strategic alliances through a series of in-depth case studies which analyze different types of partnerships. Positioned at the heart of the value creation process, the choice of information system seems to be becoming a strategic issue which should be centered not only on the organizational decisions related to the type of alliance but also the management systems of each of the partners. The authors provide an understanding of the nature of this relationship between the organizational structure and the method of information system integration in asymmetric alliances. The in-depth analysis of strategic alliance case-studies illustrates the different methods of information system integration, which are themselves linked to the organisational and structural choices of the alliance. These methods are characterized by information-sharing and coordination mechanisms as well as the balance of control over shared activities developed by the distinct partners.

When using numerical simulation to make a decision, how can its reliability be determined? What are the common pitfalls and mistakes when assessing the trustworthiness of computed information, and how can they be avoided? Whenever numerical simulation is employed in connection with engineering decision-making, there is an implied expectation of reliability: one cannot base decisions on computed information without believing that information is reliable enough to support those decisions. Using mathematical models to show the reliability of computer-generated information is an essential part of any modelling effort. Giving users of finite element analysis (FEA) software an introduction to verification and validation procedures, this book thoroughly covers the fundamentals of assuring reliability in numerical simulation. The renowned authors systematically guide readers through the basic theory and algorithmic structure of the finite element method, using helpful examples and exercises throughout. Delivers the tools needed to have a working knowledge of the finite element method Illustrates the concepts and procedures of verification and validation Explains the process of conceptualization supported by virtual experimentation Describes the convergence characteristics of the h-, p- and hp-methods Covers the hierarchic view of mathematical models and finite element spaces Uses examples and exercises which illustrate the techniques and procedures of quality assurance Ideal for mechanical and structural engineering students, practicing engineers and applied mathematicians Includes parameter-controlled examples of solved problems in a companion website (www.wiley.com/go/szabo)

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: More and more companies apply electronic information systems in all their business areas. In the past, many of these systems pertained to one specific user group. However, due to high efforts and investments for maintaining these information flows, companies tend to increase the amount of attracted user groups. Thereby, the users must deal with more and more information every day. In addition, they must select the relevant information, which serves as a basis for their decisions, on their own. This procedure and the included irrelevant information generate high efforts due to re-work requirements. Therefore, users reject more and more information. All these conditions combined with a two-user group-oriented customer information system require output adjustments to the user-specific needs. Consequently, it is necessary to identify the users, their needs, and the potential effectiveness of specific information provided by a specific system. This thesis refers to theoretical analysis models for generating an optimal concept. Thereby, it considers methods analyzing the original information system aim, user groups, their needs and the way the provided information flow can meet all these requests. These considerations represent actual conditions of Varta Gerätebatterie GmbH. Afterwards, this research compares the optimal with the actual situation in order to deduct appropriate improvement steps. Finally, this thesis suggests possible integrations and constit...
