Managing Information Risk and the Economics of Security by M. Eric Johnson

By M. Eric Johnson

Safeguard has been a human problem because the sunrise of time. With the increase of the electronic society, info defense has speedily grown to a space of great research and ongoing examine. whereas a lot study has excited by the technical elements of laptop safety, some distance much less consciousness has been given to the administration problems with info probability and the industrial issues dealing with businesses and international locations. dealing with info probability and the Economics of safeguard offers innovative pondering at the defense concerns dealing with managers, coverage makers, and participants. a number of the chapters of this quantity have been provided and debated on the 2008 Workshop at the Economics of knowledge safety (WEIS), hosted by way of the Tuck college of commercial at Dartmouth university. subsidized through Tuck’s heart for electronic recommendations and the Institute for info Infrastructure safeguard (I3P), the convention introduced jointly over 100 info defense specialists, researchers, lecturers, newshounds, company executives, govt officers, cyber crime investigators and prosecutors. the crowd represented the worldwide nature of knowledge defense with contributors from China, Italy, Germany, Canada, Australia, Denmark, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, the uk and the USA. This quantity wouldn't be attainable with no the committed paintings Xia Zhao (of Dartmouth collage and now the college of North Carolina, Greensboro) who acted because the technical editor.

An example of a firm with both types of customers is a company that is leasing point-of-sale (POS) devices to merchants and at the same time performing processing and routing services on the data captured on those devices for the banks issuing the associated payment cards. Such a firm would be considered to be providing front-end services to the merchants and back-end services to the issuing banks. 2 In Europe, e-money is defined as “monetary value as represented by a claim on the issuer which is: (i) stored on an electronic device, such as a chip card or computer memory; (ii) issued on receipt of funds of an amount not less in value than the monetary value issued; (iii) accepted as means of payment by undertakings other than the issuer” (EC 2006).

They will also be aware that some risks will affect them from outside of their organizations and may take extra precautions to protect themselves from such contingencies. But the interrelated nature of payment networks, and the exposure to outside threats that are very difficult to anticipate, implies that self-interest may not be sufficient to protect the payment system. As a result, industry self-regulation is significant in the payments industry. These efforts are typically conducted at the network level where rules and requirements are set regarding standards that participants must meet regarding controls and management of operational, data security, and other risks.
