Electronic data processing, Security systems
Security in automatic data processing systems is concerned with the protection of equipment and data against unauthorized modifications or destruction, and accidental or intentional disclosure of information. This report consists of two parts: 1. An overview of current literature in the field. In this part, basic problems and solutions, terminology and concepts found in the theoretical aspects of data processing systems security are described. 2. A survey of the state of art in a sample area. During the survey, information about actual applications of security methods in the Orlando, Florida area was collected. This information was gathered by means of a questionnaire and it will permit a comparative analysis between the usage of security measures in large and small firms. It is hoped that this study will provide valuable information to both the computer practitioner and management and in addition, will create an awareness of the important role that the security function plays in an organization.
