Do Auditors Adjust Their Audit Plans Accordingly When They Encounter Material Automated Control Weaknesses?, Daniel D. Selby 2010 University of Richmond

Do Auditors Adjust Their Audit Plans Accordingly When They Encounter Material Automated Control Weaknesses?, Daniel D. Selby

Accounting Faculty Publications

Automated control weaknesses are associated with defects in computer hardware or computer applications. AU 319 does not require auditors to add professionals with specialized skills in automated controls (or IT audit specialists) to the audit engagement. Auditors may encounter a material automated control weakness and adjust their audit plan without the assistance of an IT audit specialist. Thus, auditors may not adjust their audit plan enough to gain an understanding of the material automated control weakness. This is an important problem for auditors because this problem may result in misstated financial statements and incorrect internal control opinions if auditors fail ...

Consumer Opinions And Rfid Implementation, Anna K. Brown

Honors Theses

Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been in use for a number of decades tracking various products and materials in a wide range of industries. The objective of this study was to find simple factors and relationships explaining the usage of Internet shopping and online banking, and the attitudes toward RFID in hospitals. The question being addressed is whether the general population is accepting of the technology application in the tracking of patients and their medical histories in a hospital environment. A randomly selected survey of the population in the Midwest was taken to examine relationships between privacy attitudes and behaviors ...


The Shaping Of Managers’ Security Objectives Through Information Security Awareness Training, Mark Harris 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Shaping Of Managers’ Security Objectives Through Information Security Awareness Training, Mark Harris

Theses and Dissertations

Information security research states that corporate security policy and information security training should be socio-technical in nature and that corporations should consider training as a primary method of protecting their information systems. However, information security policies and training are predominately technical in nature. In addition, managers creating security policies rely heavily on security guidelines, which are also technically oriented. This study created a series of information security training videos that were viewed by four groups of managers. One video discussed the socio-technical aspects of security, another discussed only the social aspects of security, the third detailed only the technical aspects ...


Global Risks In Higher Education: Emergence Of A Risk-Based Leadership Model, Grace Thomson 2010 Nevada State College

Global Risks In Higher Education: Emergence Of A Risk-Based Leadership Model, Grace Thomson

Dr. Grace S. Thomson

This document presents an analysis of the challenges of globalization facing American higher education as the incursion in international localization intensifies. Institutions face the dilemma of preserving the legitimacy of the national culture while entering global environments with diverse beliefs and behaviors. The emerging “Risk-Based Leadership Model for Global Higher Education (RLM)” proposes the development of distinctive macro-level competencies (i.e. risk-management models, GLOBE leadership dimensions) and micro-level competencies (emotional intelligence and life-work balance).


Measuring Emotions In Electronic Auctions, Marc Adam 2010 Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Measuring Emotions In Electronic Auctions, Marc Adam

Marc T. P. Adam

Auctions are nowadays a popular and frequently employed market mechanism in electronic markets. In economic literature, the success of electronic auctions has been largely attributed to the reduction of transaction costs, the large number of potential buyers, and the independence of time and space. However, an additional explanation for the success of electronic markets, and in particular Internet consumer auctions, is the hedonic or emotional value bidders derive from auction participation. The emotionality bidders experience in Internet auctions confronts a market engineer of electronic markets with two important challenges, regarding both the auction mechanism design and the user interface design ...

Copyright And Open Access For Academic Works, Frank Mueller-Langer, Richard Watt 2010 Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law

Copyright And Open Access For Academic Works, Frank Mueller-Langer, Richard Watt

Frank Müller-Langer

In a recent paper, Steven Shavell (2009) has argued strongly in favor of eliminating copyright from academic works. Shavell analyses the pros and cons of removal of copyright and in its place to have a pure open access system, in which authors (or more likely their employers) would provide the funds that keep journals in business. In this paper we explore some of the arguments in Shavell’s paper, above all the way in which the distribution of the sources of journal revenue would be altered, and the feasible effects upon the quality of journal content. We propose a slight ...

When Public Opposition Defeats Alternative Water Projects - The Case Of Toowoomba Australia, A. Hurlimann, Sara Dolnicar 2010 University of Melbourne

When Public Opposition Defeats Alternative Water Projects - The Case Of Toowoomba Australia, A. Hurlimann, Sara Dolnicar

Sara Dolnicar

Located approximately 100km west of Brisbane, Toowoomba is home to approximately 95,000 people. Surface water from dams is the main source of water for the city. In 2006 the residents of Toowoomba were invited to vote in a referendum (plebiscite) concerning whether or not an indirect potable wastewater reuse scheme should be constructed to supply additional water to the area. At that stage dam levels in Toowoomba were at approximately twenty per cent of capacity. Toowoomba residents, after intense campaigning on both sides of the referendum debate, voted against the proposal. In July 2008 dam levels dropped to eleven ...


What Types Of Organizations Benefit From Team Production, And How Do They Benefit?, Jed DeVaro, Fidan Ana Kurtulus 2010 Cornell University

What Types Of Organizations Benefit From Team Production, And How Do They Benefit?, Jed Devaro, Fidan Ana Kurtulus

Fidan A Kurtulus

[Excerpt] Using data from a large cross section of British establishments, we ask how different firm characteristics are associated with the predicted benefits to organizational performance from using team production. To compute the predicted benefits from using team production, we estimate structural models for financial performance, labor productivity, and product quality, treating the firm’s choices of whether or not to use teams and whether or not to grant teams autonomy as endogenous. One of the main results is that many firm characteristics are associated with larger predicted benefits from teams to labor productivity and product quality but smaller predicted ...
