Security as we perceive it today became a topic of research with the introduction of networked information systems, or networked ISs, in the early 1980s. In the mid-1990s the proliferation of the Internet in the business area exposed security as one of the key factors for successful online business, and the majority of efforts to provide it were focused on technology. However, due to lessons learned during this period, the paradigms have since changed, with increasing emphasis on human factors. It is a fact that security of networked ISs is becoming part of the core processes in all e-business environments. While data is clearly one of the key assets and has to be protected accordingly, ISs have to be highly integrated and open. Appropriate treatment of these contradictory issues is not a trivial task for managers of contemporary intelligent organizations. It requires new approaches, especially in light of new technologies.
