Delphi Study: Influence of Environmental Literature Review

… Green IT and energy costs

Although IT devices consume energy, you can use them to control energy, particularly electricity consumption.

You can use IT systems to take care of building management. For example, using movement sensors, thermostats can be adjusted, lights switched on and off, and computers switched off out of hours and reawakened for software upgrades.

One of the biggest challenges in reducing electricity consumption is ensuring that electricity users can monitor their own consumption. What gets measured gets managed -- once people are aware of their consumption, they can go about reducing it. This isn't yet common practice, even in data centers. But, with new smart metering technologies, organizations could monitor the electricity usage of individual departments. Departments could be charged for usage,…. [read more]

More than six years after the attacks of September 11th, 2001 showed the United States to be a nation deeply vulnerable to the type of attacks which are favored by terrorist organizations, the security policies and approaches to protecting the American people and America's friends and interests remain deeply impeachable. Security responses relating to the combat of foreign wars, the bureaucratic consolidation of American security agencies, the enhancement of surveillance freedoms to be used against the American people and the selling of America's port security to a state-run firm in the United Arab Emirates are all suggestive of a government which has not taken the proper steps to address the….

Chief Information Security Officer-Level Risk Case Study

… In addition, many hackers are adept at discovering the passwords of authorized users who choose passwords that are easy to guess or appear in dictionaries. The activities of hackers represent serious threats to the con-dentiality of information in computer systems. Many hackers have created copies of inadequately protected ?les and placed them in areas of the system where they can be accessed by unauthorized persons;

(2) Masqueraders. A masquerader is an authorized, or unauthorized, user of the system who has obtained the password of another user and thus gains access to ?les available to the other user by pretending to be the authorized user. Masqueraders are often able to read and copy con-dential ?les. Masquerading, therefore, can be de-ned as an attempt to gain access…. [read more]

There has been massive influx of emigration from Zimbabwe since the late 90's…. [read more]


Supply Chain Management Research Paper

… Supply Chain Management

What does it mean when we say that a process is capable?

In the context of supply chain management and lean manufacturing, when a process is said to be capable, it is within the boundaries of performance as defined through statistical process control (SPC) or Six Sigma methodologies. Process capability is the characteristic of a given workflow to produce a similar level of product quality over duration of production run or process (Parry, Mills, Turner, 2010). Process capability is very important in reverse logistics strategies manufacturers use for recycling packaging and components, ensuring these items meet minimum criterion for use in production again (Cheng, Lee, 2010). In industries where the inventory turns are many times more often than once a week on…. [read more]


Sarbanes-oxley. The Political Pressure Term Paper

… And last of all, the Securities and Exchange Commission was established.

require that investors receive financial and other significant information concerning securities being offered for public sale; and prohibit deceit, misrepresentations, and other fraud in the sale of securities.

This act was partly authored, ironically, by Joseph Kennedy, who was considered an expert in that he had made much of his money illegitimately through the sale of liquor. Although regulation enjoyed broad-based support, it had its opponents. The most prominent among them was the president of the New York Stock Exchange. However, he was soon silenced when it….

Japanese Earthquake Impact and Lessons Term Paper

… One of these lies about 4 km to the north-west of the Wellington fault and another lies about 18 km to the south-east over a mountain range. Both of these faults are less active than the Wellington fault, generating large earthquakes but less frequently, i.e. with approximate average recurrence intervals of 3000 and 1500 years, respectively, compared to 600 years for the Wellington fault. For the centre of the city to be damaged severely once in two or three thousand years is clearly better than once in 600 years, but preferably, it should be planned not to happen at all, so these faults should be avoided as well (Fluchter, 2003).

There are regions further away where no major faults exist, but other issues, such as…. [read more]

Al-Qaeda Developing a Coherent Strategy Article

… S. And European nations. These attacks have resulted in the loss of thousands of lives (Post, 2002), and the number continues to grow. Keeping in mind the aforementioned description of Al-Qaeda's background, power structure, operation methods and ideology, one can easily conduct an examination of the strengths and weakness of the group and determine how best to achieve victory over this multi-faced foe.

The Chinese General and military strategist, Sun Tzu, in his book 'The Art of War' (Giles, 2005) has famously said, "To fight and conquer in all our battles, is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting." A well-thought out strategy is required to defeat a foe of such vast influence and caliber. It should in no…. [read more]
