Information Assurance for Networked Enterprises


In today's companies, information systems do not only support business functions but they are also integral parts of the business operation. For example, ERP systems (Enterprise Resource Planning) are now essential for organizations and their supply chains. Incorrect information in ERP systems can have serious consequences for the inter-networked companies. In this computing environment, having a secure information system is no longer sufficient. Companies are now seeking new approaches regarding the administration of distributed information systems towards increased trustworthiness and value of their information. The research problem can be defined as: (1) Identify and specify the true needs of information assurance at the collaborative application level for given networked enterprises, and (2) Specify and design feasible, cost-effective corresponding means to solve these assurance needs.
