The increasing reliance in our information age on product and process digitisation and e-governance makes us progressively more vulnerable to cyber attacks on our computer systems, networks and data. In their most disruptive form, cyber attacks may target the individuals, organizations, government, military, or infrastructural assets of a nation or its citizens, in isolation or event at the same time. We have finally concluded this three day workshop on information risk management and cyber security in IIT Delhi. Continue reading “Workshop in Cyber Security Policy 2016”
Digital services are increasingly getting prominence, due to the multi-faceted models of service delivery and different approaches of customer engagement. However such models face a lot of challenges from the different dimensions of perceived risk. An empirical investigation was conducted by our student, Mr. R Mohta, which highlights the different dimensions of risk in different digital services. Continue reading “Evaluating Multifaceted Risks in Digital Services”
This is a study where we attempt to explore different dimensions of risk that a consumer of any service or product may face over an interaction between the service / product vendor / provider and the consumer. Results are descriptive statistics based on findings of an empirical study. Different dimensions of these risk, which are defined in scientific literature provide different interaction effect at the point of decision making and service consumption. That is why it is important to understand their dynamics when service science is being explored. Continue reading “Risk Management Approaches”
When it comes to benefiting from advances in technology the security industry is not that different from other industries. In more recent years, nowhere has this been more evident than in the area of CCTV security systems. Traditionally, analogue CCTV systems have given sterling service in monitoring the comings and goings at various business premises and public buildings. These days, however, the IP security camera is likely to play a predominant role, as part of an integrated security setup, one usually controlled by a comprehensive software package.

Electrical safety is an issue that firms must take seriously. Thankfully, it’s now straightforward for organisations to access electrical inspection services and by bringing experts in to get their appliances and fixed wiring checked, they can minimise the risk that problems will arise. Highlighting the dangers associated with electrical systems, a report in the Liverpool Echo has revealed that an electrical fire recently broke out at a Merseyside restaurant as firefighters tackled a second blaze at a junction box nearby.
