Reduce Damage to organisations
In order to prevent or minimize damage to a particular organisation, some security precautions need to be implemented and below I am going to name and explain how each of them work:- Stealing Intellectual Property Stealing intellectual property is basically when someone steals images from your website or other information and uses it on their own site without your permission. This is known as breaking the copyright law and works with logos as well and new ideas for new products as well. This can for example include; patents and trademarks as well as domain names. If a person is caught they can be given a significant amount of fine and eventually a prison sentence as well. The fine is £5000 for access and unlimited fine for modifying data. Denial Of Service Attack Denial of service attacks is basically when a particular person restricts access to a web page or network. It basically stops legitimate information to get through to the server and stop legitimate service to respond. This will make customers go to other websites and the company that has been attacked by this lose crucial customers and a significant amount of money as their website is not responding. This is done by a particular person sending lots of blank server request which overloads the server/system and it stops getting a request. Halting E-commerce Transactions If for instance a particular
Standard Operating Procedures (Sop) recruitment policies and procedures.
STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES (SOP) RECRUITMENT RECRUITMENT POLICIES AND PROCEDURES I. FILING OF VACANCIES When a recruitment request is received, a GG-1(s) must be prepared and properly authenticated for the vacancy(s) to be filled. Upon GG-1 clearance, the first step is to determine the availability of candidates (i.e., existing eligibility list) or the need to post a job announcement. If there is a sufficient list of eligible for the type of recruitment (i.e. open, government, or departmental) and for the position to be filled, then immediate certification for selection interview is the proper next step. Otherwise, a job announcement must be prepared and posted. II. ANNOUNCEMENTS: A) Announcement of positions is based on the following reasons: • Insufficient eligible (less than 5 names/10 for Labor & Custodial); • Recruitment difficulties; • High turnover rates; • Departmental and Government-Wide Consideration (Pool of candidates consists of permanent classified employees either from within the department or from within the Government of Guam.) • Known Promotion Potential (KPP); 2) Prepare announcements in the proper format and post and disseminate to all government of Guam departments, agencies and to the private sectors and other non-profit organizations to ensure that announcements reach all segments of the population in order to
Assess the view that the most important feature of an electoral system is proportionality.
Assess the view that the most important feature of an electoral system is proportionality. Many people citizen many of the electoral systems are that they try to produce a single winner therefore distorting proportionality and the distribution of preferences among the voters. These systems are designed to produce a balance between the total number of votes and the total number of seats which it receives from the legislation. Proportionality is basically about fairness but elections are not always fair, for example, In 1997 Labour only won 44% or the votes but won 64% of the seats using the first past the post system. In a truly proportional system the labour party would only have been entitled to 44% of the seats. Proportional representation tries to prevent this distortion between votes and seats, although it is not always successful. This is the most proportional system where votes are equal to the seats. There are many various forms of P.R, and the most commonly used one is called the P.R List system. This is used in all European countries except for the UK Ireland and France. Parties list there candidates in the order in which they want them to be elected. There are 2 variants of the list system, Closed List and Open List. In the closed list system is used in Israel and Spain. This system can be used in multi-member constituencies, but in Israel there is one
Discuss the role of persuasion in today's organizations and the issues that may arise during the process.
INTRODUCTION Communication plays an integral role in our lives. Be it at work, at play or even between self, we are constantly communicating, consciously and unconsciously. Virtually nobody can avoid communication. For the purpose of this subject, the focus is on managerial communication, which is quite different from other forms of communication. As Munter (2000) puts it, "in a business or management setting, a brilliant message alone is not sufficient: you are successful only if your message leads to the response you desire from you audience." This paper thus seeks to document the managerial communication process and the potential benefits and problems that might suffice during the process. It will also attempt to reinforce the growing importance of effective communication in organizations with appropriate examples drawn from the good practices and strategies used in successful organizations of today. For the purpose of this assignment, this paper will seek to discuss the role of persuasion in today's organizations and the issues that may arise during the process. It will attempt to discuss what Adler and Elmhorst (2002) proposed of the effects of persuasion and behavioural change. This paper will also look into the various persuasion strategies that have been widely used in the past and present and the ethical considerations that need to be made in this new day and age
I have been asked by my company (Standard engineering components LTD) to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing some computer aided design software
Computer aided design (assignment 3) Background into assignment I have been asked by my company (Standard engineering components LTD) to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing some computer aided design software. The main points I need to find out are: - . If, and how the company will benefit from the software 2. If it will pay the company back from the initial out lay. Background into computer CAD software is commonly used for drafting architectural and engineering drawings and for making technical illustrations of any kind. For us, a professional company associated with design and drafting then CAD applications is a must in this day and age. CAD enables you to prepare fast and accurate drawings. It provides flexibility to change drawings with minimal effort. In recent years, most large companies have made the switch to CAD to enjoy the benefits of this precise and creative tool. Today, many educational institutions include CAD as part of their academic curriculum. As a result, CAD knowledge has become very important to all professionals involved in the field of design and drafting. AutoCAD 2002 (Probably the choice of most companies) 2D Drawings only AutoCAD is probably the most appropriate choice of computer aided design software, it is the package that is used by most companies ranging from small to large it is available worldwide and made
The purpose of the report is to find out the way of communication systems used at the "Recruitment Agency".
Terms Of Reference We are presenting this report on the communication system of the "Recruitment Agency". Aim of the report The purpose of the report is to find out the way of communication systems used at the "Recruitment Agency" e.g. Communication to Employees. The methods that we are going to find out the communication between 36 member of staff and the manager. The problem the business has is that the newly recruited manager has to know the 36 member of staff very speedily. So, the communication bridge can be considered as a newly born baby. I have found the information by: * Desk reference. * Reading the Journals. * Asking the teacher. Communication is one of the key aspects in keeping a successful business on top. The "Recruitment agency" needs to have effective methods of communication so that everyone is clear about objectives, everyone is informed of changes in the working environment and therefore members can respond to these new ideas. Business decisions involve the co-operation and interaction of several individuals. Sometimes group of colleagues work together in a group to attain a goal. Communication must therefore be maintained to facilitate theses joint effort. Without communicating ideas and thoughts it would be impossible to identify common objectives and purpose necessary for successful operations. So, what is communication ? "Communication is
Education through ICT has changed massively over years. For example the National Curriculum requires that children can use computers from an early age and can use all software as they progress into secondary schools and further education.
Education Introduction Education through ICT has changed massively over years. For example the National Curriculum requires that children can use computers from an early age and can use all software as they progress into secondary schools and further education. Pupils are using ICT in nearly every subject. Social There are many social effects on Education for example the use of walkie-talkies in schools. This is device used commonly within educational establishments to help teachers or assistants to stay in contact with each other when monitoring lunch or break times. Anther example is Motion sensors are small devices that can be placed into classrooms, hallways or lecture rooms. These are designed to detect any movement and if desired they can feed into a central system from which they could alert an alarm if it was set to do so. Phones have a place just about everywhere in the world, and definitely do in education. Phones are used to contact absentees, members of staff during the day or after hours, phone parents or phone in late. Lastly e-mail is the final example. Everyone has a computer nowadays and almost everyone has an email account. This is a method of increasing popularity, which many people in the educational areas try to utilize. This can be used for sending messages to one another or handing in late homework Professional A new technology that has made
Should the UK reform its main electoral system?
Michelle Feeney Should the UK reform its main electoral system? Over the years Britain's pluralist electoral system has been scrutinised by many political and pressure groups, such as the Liberal Democrats and the Electoral Reform Society. In their 1997 Manifesto, the Labour Party did state that they would look into the matter, by holding a referendum on the issue, however there was no change as Labour had a large majority in 1997 and Labour has preformed disappointingly in elections where Proportional Representation had been used. The main electoral system in the UK should be reformed because the 'first past the post' system does not represent the electorate in a democratic manner. It also under represents smaller parties, as the system creates a two party system in which either Labour or the Conservatives have been in Government. This has been the occurrence since 1945, and to amend this and be represented wholly, we should reform our electorate system using a method of Proportional Representation in which the electorate would be represented. The current system does have some advantages, such as it is a simple system and the concept can be grasped by anyone, and it produces clear results. Therefore, there would be a strong majority government and no weak coalitions. The author of 'Electoral Reform,' David Agnew agrees with this statement, and also states that with
Using Search Engines
Task 1 Using Search Engines Introduction In this task I have been asked to research for a website by using a search engine that I think is best suitable for the research. In this research I will be finding a weather station website that contains forty years of data on rainfall. The reason for why I want this is because I need to see whether there has been a decrease or an increase in rainfall. In order to do find the website I will have to type in specific words and phrases into the search engine; to tell the search engine what exactly I'm looking for. As part of the task I will also have to use logical operators which are, AND, NOT and OR to search for the website. I will be explaining each of the logical operators in detail below: - AND: - In search engines they automatically put this is a search so you don't really need to put it in the search bar. So if you put in a search like 'birds bees,' it will put in AND to make 'birds and bees' and will only bring back websites that have 'birds and bees' in the website. OR: - In a search this would bring up more websites. For example if I put in a search like birds or bees, it will bring up sites with just birds in it, websites with just bees in it and websites that have both Birds and bees. So by using OR it brings back more websites. NOT: - By using NOT, it will dismiss anything I put after NOT. So for example if I put
Making Reference To Leading Alternative Systems, Critically Assess the Case For Electoral Reform In the Uk.
MAKING REFERENCE TO LEADING ALTERNATIVE SYSTEMS, CRITICALLY ASSESS THE CASE FOR ELECTORAL REFORM IN THE UK. Voting and elections are essential for true democracy. A democracy is a political system were everyone within that system has the right to have a say on how the system is run. Whilst direct democracy is impractical, representative democracy can be as good. Instead of having 30,000 people having their say on each issue that comes to their attention, one representative can try his/her best to sum up the feeling of their constituency overall on the matter at hand. This both saves a lot of time and also means that the representative must work to ensure that he retains the vote of the electorate to retain his/her seat in the representative assembly. The current system of voting representatives for general elections in the UK is the 'first past the post' or 'simple majority' system. The UK is split into different geographic locations, called constituencies. These constituencies have approximately the same population. As people constantly move, the boundaries of these constituencies have to be altered from time to time to ensure people are receiving fair representation, and in the UK this is done by the Boundary Commision. One candidate will be elected from each constituency to represent it in the House of Commons. The winning candidate needs only a majority of the
