  5. Knowledge Management

    I have decided to investigate the two most influential texts regarding knowledge management. Nonaka's and Takeuchi's 'The Knowledge Creating Company' and Davenport and Prusak's 'Working Knowledge', published in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Nonaka and Takeuchi Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995) believe that existing knowledge is 'converted' into new knowledge. Nonaka and Takeuchi do not use the western definition of knowledge focused on 'truthfulness' rather they define knowledge more loosely as a 'justified belief'. Nonaka and Takeuchi state "while traditional epistemology emphasize the absolute, static, and nonhuman nature of knowledge, typically expressed in propositions and formal logic, we consider knowledge as a dynamic human process of justifying personal belief toward the 'truth' "(1995 p. 58)

  10. Information Security System

    So far we have known some types of risks and threats to computer systems in organisations. They are being: 1. Accidental error 2. Deliberate damage 3. Fraud To these categories I would also add a Physical threat, Unauthorised access and Malicious misuse. Let's have a look on each of them. Accidental error This is an important security issue which computer security experts should always put into consideration when designing security measures for a system. Accidental errors could occur at any time in a computer system but if we do have proper checks in place then it could not be the major concern. Accidental error includes corruption of data caused by programming error, user or operator error.

    For example, an input in the Marketing department would be an idea of an advertisement. This idea has to go through several stages of processing. The idea has to be verified by the market researchers that it is appropriate and addressed to the right target market. Finally the idea has to be transformed into a real advertisement. That would be the output. An example in the manufacturing department would be raw materials as input. They have to be processed to be turned into the necessary parts for televisions. As the business environment of Super TV consists of numerous systems and subsystems, various systems are connected by their inputs and outputs (Elliott 2004, p.62).

  14. Symbian is a mobile phone operating system designed to support services on 2.5G and 3G mobile telephony networks. Symbian is a 32-bit native IP-based, multi-tasking operating system designed for portable, battery-powered, mobile phones.

    mobile telephony networks. Currently, most mobile telephony networks are second generation (2G) networks, using GSM (TDMA) and CDMA for digital encoding, and allow for high quality voice communications and limited data communications (e.g. SMS). Networks are evolving from today's circuit-switched 2G mobile phones to packet-switched 2.5G and 3G networks. Third Generation (3G) mobile telephony networks will support high-speed data transmission and enable live wireless video and audio streaming. However, network operators must upgrade their infrastructure to enable 3G services and this is likely to take some time.

  17. Electronic Crime

    This is quite an astonishing fact, given that these more conventional crimes appear to be more widespread. In this paper I will review what organisations need to do to identify the risks to their business, and subsequently what they can do to protect themselves in preparation against such risks, looking at systems and tools available for this purpose. I will then review the business continuity processes that organisations can employ, which will look at types of approaches used to ensure minimal business disruption in the event of an incident occurring.
