Understanding The Methods Behind Cyber Terrorism, Maurice E. Dawson Jr., Marwan Omar, Jonathan Abramson

Maurice Dawson

Cyber security has become a matter of national, international, economic, and societal importance that affects multiple nations (Walker, 2012). Since the 1990s users have exploited vulnerabilities to gain access to networks for malicious purposes. In recent years the number of attacks on U.S. networks has continued to grow at an exponential rate. This includes malicious embedded code, exploitation of backdoors, and more. These attacks can be initiated from anywhere in the world from behind a computer with a masked Internet Protocol (IP) address. This type of warfare, cyber warfare, changes the landscape of war itself (Beidleman, 2009). This type ...

Bit.Ly, Your Tinyurl Is Awe.Sm! Reinforcing Your Brand With A Custom Url Shortener, Robert L. Nunez Ii, Rebecca J. Hall

Robert L Nunez II

After migrating to the campus hosted CMS the UW-Milwaukee, School of Information Studies web team quickly realized that they needed a service that would allow them to create custom shortened URLs for marketing. Within 1 day, the team was able to produce a service that was equivalent to that of Bit.ly, that not only allows them to create shortened URLs, but also track their clicks, the audience reached, reinforce their brand, and much, much more. This poster will show the teams efforts in meeting this goal and the benefits of not relying on a 3rd party service.


A Newsvendor Approach To Compliance And Production Under Cap And Trade Emissions Regulation, Andrew S. Manikas, James R. Kroes 2014 Boise State University

A Newsvendor Approach To Compliance And Production Under Cap And Trade Emissions Regulation, Andrew S. Manikas, James R. Kroes

IT and Supply Chain Management Faculty Publications and Presentations

Since the 1990s, governmental agencies have increasingly turned to market based cap and trade programs to control the emission of pollutants. Firms subject to cap and trade regulation are typically required to acquire emissions allowances via open auction markets. The cost to acquire allowances may impose a substantial financial burden on a firm. While emissions reduction efforts may eliminate some firm's need to acquire additional allowances, there are still numerous firms that need to purchase additional allowances on the open market. This study presents a new forward buying heuristic, designed for those firms that need to purchase emissions allowances ...

African E-Government Research Landscape, Jean Vincent Fonou Dombeu, Nelson Rannyai

The African Journal of Information Systems

Over the past decade, African governments have followed the worldwide trends towards establishing e-government with the aim of improving public service delivery to citizens through the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). As a consequence, authors from academia, government departments and agencies, civil society, industry, non-governmental and international organizations have embarked into e-government research focusing on Africa. However, the state of the art of e-government research in Africa is poorly documented. This study analyzes the status of e-government research in Africa. A qualitative technique based on online searches and literature reviews is used to collect data that have addressed ...

An Exploratory Study Of User Resistance In Healthcare It, Madison Ngafeeson, Vishal Midha

Journal Articles

The US healthcare system is clearly experiencing a major transition. By 2015, the healthcare sector is expected to have migrated from a paper record system to a completely electronic health record (EHR) system. The adoption and use of these systems are expected to increase legibility, reduce costs, limit medical errors and improve the overall quality of healthcare. Hence, the US government is investing $70 billion over a 10-year period to facilitate the transition to an electronic system. However, early reports show that physicians and nurses among other health professionals continue to resist the full use of the system. This paper ...

Factors For Measuring Password-Based Authentication Practices, Herbert J. Mattord, Yair Levy, Steven Furnell 2014 Kennesaw State University

Factors For Measuring Password-Based Authentication Practices, Herbert J. Mattord, Yair Levy, Steven Furnell

Faculty Publications

Organizations rely on password-based authentication methods to control access to their Web-based systems. This research study developed a benchmarking instrument intended to assess authentication methods used in such systems, focusing on three component areas: 1) password strength requirements, 2) password usage methods, and 3) password reset requirements. This study explores the criteria required to define these component areas and validated proposed measurement criteria by use of an expert panel from industry and academia. An opportunity sample of web-based ISs in two groups were assessed to examine the use of the Authentication Method System Index (AMSI).

Identifying Critical Success Factors: The Case Of Erp Systems In Higher Education, Billy Mathias Bm Kalema Dr, Oludayo O. Olugbara Prof, Ray M. Kekwaletswe Prof

The African Journal of Information Systems

This paper reports on a study that uses a combination of techniques to formally characterize and determine the critical success factors influencing the effective usage of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, with special reference to higher education institutions. The thirty-seven ERP success factors identified from the literature are classified into: Critical, Active, Reactive and Inert categories. The classification of decision factors can generally support organizations to explore their current challenges and to adequately prepare decisions in a more participatory way for future endeavors. This study suggests a possible alternative that decision makers should take when a factor or a set ...


Potentially Valuable Overlaps Between Work System Theory, Demo, And Enterprise Engineering, Steven Alter 2014 University of San Francisco

Potentially Valuable Overlaps Between Work System Theory, Demo, And Enterprise Engineering, Steven Alter

Steven Alter

This paper explores how work system theory (WST) and related core ideas in various versions of the work system method (WSM) overlap with enterprise engineering and with the DEMO methodology. Based on the definition of work system, an enterprise can be viewed as a set of interacting work systems. A work system can be summarized at various levels of detail. The simplest level is basically a verb phrase. The next level is a “work system snapshot.” More detailed descriptions are based on a work system metamodel.

This paper’s contribution is in two areas, 1) establishing links between WST/WSM ...

Knowledge-Supported Design Thinking About Systems In Organizations: An Application Of Work System Theory, Steven Alter 2014 University of San Francisco

Knowledge-Supported Design Thinking About Systems In Organizations: An Application Of Work System Theory, Steven Alter

Steven Alter

This paper explains a type of knowledge-supported design thinking related to systems in organizations. It shows how work system theory (WST) provides the basis for the work system method (WSM), various versions of which have been used by many hundreds of MBA and Executive MBA students. Design thinking occurs throughout WSM and is especially prominent at the point where WST/WSM users apply their analysis and develop recommendations for improving an existing work system or creating a new work system. Knowledge support for that design thinking has been provided through the knowledge built into WSM, and can be provided in ...
