The Chief Information Security Officer: An Exploratory Study, Erastus Karanja, Mark A. Rosso

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

The proliferation and embeddedness of Information Technology (IT) resources into many organizations’ business processes continues unabated. The security of these IT resources is essential to operational and strategic business continuity. However, as the large number of recent security breaches at various organizations illustrate, there is more that needs to be done in securing IT resources. Firms, through organizational structures, usually delegate the management and control of IT security activities and policies to the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Nevertheless, there seem to be a number of firms without a CISO and for the ones that do, there is little consensus ...

The Dark Side Of Banning Hacking Technique Discussion, Qiu-Hong Wang, Ting Zhang Le

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Prior studies have evidenced the effectiveness of more severe and broader enforcement in deterringcybercrimes. This study addresses the other side of the story. Our data analysis shows that theenforcement against the production / distribution / possession of computer misuse tools tends toincrease the contribution on detection and protection related posts in online hacker forums. Butthis enforcement may discourage those contributors who had originally actively contributed to theprotection discussions. Thus government regulations have to be cautiously justify the incentives ofmultiple parties in the cybersecurity context.

Environmental Management Information Systems: A Conceptual Overview And Review Of Vendors, Jeffrey W. Merhout, Mary M. Callison, Shu Schiller

Shu Schiller

Organizations need relevant and specific information systems to operate their carbon emissions, energy use, and other green activities to support its management of sustainability initiatives and related accounting and other reporting requirements. Green information systems (IS) and environmental management information systems (EMIS) thus become necessary for monitoring and controlling activities and procedures regarding environmental concerns. In the IS scholarly community, we have not yet given full attention to carbon management and environmental management IS, despite our increasing efforts in research around green information systems. In this paper, we aim to introduce the concepts of environmental management information systems by discussing ...

Institutional Environment And Ipo Strategy: A Study Of Chinext In China, Jing Zhang, Wei Zhang, Andreas Schwab, Sipei Zhang

Management Publications

Taking an institution-based view, we investigate how entrepreneurs respond to immature regulatory environments in order to be listed on stock markets in countries with an emerging economy. Unlike stock markets in developed countries, in emerging markets, gaining government approval for listing is a critical and more unpredictable process for entrepreneurs. Hence, entrepreneurs who are preparing for a public offering might give substantially discounted shares to venture capital (VC) investors. This will lead to higher investment returns in pre-IPO deals than those at earlier stages, which distorts the risk-return tradeoff found in developed markets. In particular, the VC investors affiliated with ...

The purpose of this research was to study the effects of the ACA on physician reimbursement rates from CMS to determine the most cost effective method of delivering healthcare services. CMS has experimented with payment methods in an attempt to increase cost effectiveness. Medicare has offered shared cost savings incentives to reward quality care ...


Economic Forecasting With Many Predictors, Fanning Meng 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Economic Forecasting With Many Predictors, Fanning Meng

Doctoral Dissertations

The dissertation is focused on the analysis of economic forecasting with a large number of predictors.

The first chapter develops a novel forecasting method that minimizes the effects of weak predictors and estimation errors on the accuracy of equity premium forecasts. The proposed method is based on an averaging scheme applied to quantiles conditional on predictors selected by LASSO. The resulting forecasts outperform the historical average, and other existing models, by statistically and economically meaningful margins.

In the second chapter, we find that incorporating distributional and high-frequency information into a forecasting model can produce substantial accuracy gains. Distributional information is ...

Continuous Top-K Monitoring On Document Streams, Leong Hou U, Junjie Zhang, Kyriakos Mouratidis, Ye Li

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

The efficient processing of document streams plays animportant role in many information filtering systems. Emerging applications,such as news update filtering and social network notifications, demandpresenting end-users with the most relevant content to their preferences. Inthis work, user preferences are indicated by a set of keywords. A centralserver monitors the document stream and continuously reports to each user thetop-k documents that are most relevant to her keywords. Our objective is tosupport large numbers of users and high stream rates, while refreshing thetop-k results almost instantaneously. Our solution abandons the traditionalfrequency-ordered indexing approach. Instead, it follows an identifier-orderingparadigm that suits better ...
