When it comes to computer security, the role of auditors today has never been more crucial. Auditors must ensure that all computers, in particular those dealing with e-business, are secure. The only source for information on the combined areas of computer audit, control, and security, the <i>IT Audit, Control, and Security</i> describes the types of internal controls, security, and integrity procedures that management must build into its automated systems. This very timely book provides auditors with the guidance they need to ensure that their systems are secure from both internal and external threats.
Introductory textbook in the important area of network security for undergraduate and graduate students
Computer System and Network Security provides the reader with a basic understanding of the issues involved in the security of computer systems and networks. Introductory in nature, this important new book covers all aspects related to the growing field of computer security. Such complete coverage in a single text has previously been unavailable, and college professors and students, as well as professionals responsible for system security, will find this unique book a valuable source of information, either as a textbook or as a general reference.
This introductory text offers a contemporary treatment of computer architecture using assembly and machine language with a focus on software. Students learn how computers work through a clear, generic presentation of a computer architecture, a departure from the traditional focus on a specific architecture. A computer's capabilities are introduced within the context of software, reinforcing the software focus of the text. Designed for computer science majors in an assembly language course, this text uses a top-down approach to the material that enables students to begin programming immediately and to understand the assembly language, the interface between hardware and software. The text includes examples from the MIPS RISC (reduced instruction set computer) architecture, and an accompanying software simulator package simulates a MIPS RISC processor (the software does not require a MIPS processor to run).
In many countries, social security and related government programs provide strong incentives for workers to leave the labor force at a young age. Research has shown that disability insurance programs can play a large role in the departure of older persons from the labor force, as many workers pass through disability insurance on their path from employment to retirement. But what is the real effect that disability insurance programs have on labor-force participation in different countries? InSocial Security Programs and Retirement Around the World, renowned economist David A. Wise authoritatively tackles this question. Fifth in the series, this volume's research encompasses the globe, traveling from Belgium to Canada to Japan and the United States, and covers the provisions of disability insurance programs as well as other pathways to retirement in over twelve countries. Presented in an easily comparable way, the findings inSocial Security Programs and Retirement Around the World have profound implications for how the provisions of a country's disability insurance program affect retirement.
