Internet Security for Managers
Information systems in different locations are interconnected through networks which make it easier for access from different locations increasing the risk for unauthorized access, abuse, or fraud. It is also possible to tap data moving over networks, steal valuable data during transmission, or change messages without authorization. Intruders can launch denial-of-service attacks to disrupt the operation of websites.
Technically capable hackers can penetrate organizational systems and can destroy or alter organizational data stored in electronic format. Without strong safeguards, valuable data could be lost, destroyed, or could fall into the wrong hands, exposing important information that violates personal privacy. From these security perspectives, this training intends to create awareness on issues of internet-based security issues and safeguarding mechanisms.
