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."

Information is everywhere, and defines everything in today's society. Moreover, information is a key concept in a wide range of academic disciplines, from quantum physics to public policy. However, these disciplines all interpret the concept in quite different ways. This book looks at information in several different academic disciplines - cybernetics, ICT, communications theory, semiotics, information systems, library science, linguistics, quantum physics and public policy. Perspectives on Information brings clarity and coherence to different perspectives through promoting information as a unifying concept across the disciplinary spectrum. Though conceived as a contribution to the ongoing conversation between academic disciplines into the nature of information, the deliberately accessible style of this text (reflecting the authors’ backgrounds at The Open University) will be make it valuable for anyone who needs to know something more about information. Given the ubiquity of information in the 21st century, that means everyone.
