Abstract

This chapter examines the problems of e-governance data/information security. In order to adequately achieve this objective, the chapter after the introduction, deals with the information and communication technology (ICT) security network, followed by effects of the changing nature of security threats in e-governance. The use of ICT internet security balancing requirements for achieving effective e-governance security network is considered. The chapter observes that strong security for internet transactions (information communication) is one of the last technical hurdles to be overcome in achieving true e-governance, enabling the broadest range of online government services while streamlining bureaucracy and providing efficient alternatives to in-person contact between government agencies and their constituents. The chapter argues that the problems of information security threats, if not tackled effectively, can hinder e-governance implementation success. The use of ICT internet security balancing requirements for achieving effective e-governance security network is recommended.
