...information from a computer system and demands compensation for its return or for an agreement not to disclose it. For example, if a Hacker r gains unauthorized access to a CEO’s computer and discovers unethical business transactions , he could then blackmail the CEO into giving him money in exchange for keeping the data from the public eye.. This causes not only a monetary loss for the CEO, but also a loss of security. 6. Employees constitute one of the greatest threats to information security because employee mistakes can lead to the outside access of classified data, entry of incorrect data, accidental deletion or modification of data, the storage of data in unprotected areas, or they could fail to follow procedures to protect data. 7. To prevent shoulder surfing, experts recommend that you shield paperwork or your keypad from view by using your body. 8. The perception of a hacker has evolved over the years from a person who has expert knowledge of computer systems to one who uses this knowledge to manipulate information systems through deliberate attacks with malicious intent. The profile of a current hacker is male or female, age 60 to 15, with varying technical levels, and can be internal or external to the organization. Today there are both expert hackers and unskilled hackers. The expert hackers are the ones who create the software and schemes to attack computer systems and the novice hacker is the one who usually implements the schemes created by the......

Colleges and universities can opt to report as special purpose governments that engage (1) only in business-type activities (2) only in governmental activities, or (3) in both. If they report as entities that engage only in business-type activities then they will report on a full accrual basis. They will have to prepare only a balance sheet, a statement of revenues, expenses and changes in fund balance and a cash flow statement. They will not have to prepare funds statements. 8. The fiscal strength of a government cannot be assessed merely by examining its general fund. General fund surpluses can be offset by deficits in other funds. Therefore, general fund surpluses are not, by themselves, a guarantee of fiscal strength. 9. The......

Net benefits are maximized at Q = 108 . b. Marginal cost is slightly smaller than marginal benefit (MC = 120, MB = 130 ) . This is due to the discrete nature of the control variable. 7. a. The net present value of attending school is the present value of the benefits derived from attending school (including the stream of higher earnings and the value to you of the work environment and prestige that your education provides), minus the opportunity cost of attending school. As noted in the text, the opportunity cost of attending school is generally greater than the cost of books and tuition. It is rational for an individual to enroll in graduate when his or her net present value is greater than zero. b. Since this increases the opportunity cost of getting an M.B.A., one would expect fewer students to apply for admission into M.B.A. Programs. 8. a. Her accounting profits are $180,000.

...|overall evaluation. |ratings. | 6. Do you think performance appraisal should be done? Is it worth the cost? While students may have differing opinions on this topic, research shows that that giving and receiving feedback about performance, when conducted in a professional and effective manner, is critical to organizational development. However, poorly executed performance appraisals can have a damaging and long-lasting effects on the organization, and organizations must take care to ensure that managers are equipped with the tools needed to communicate performance appraisals to employees in a manner that will address performance issues as well as facilitate development. 7. What criteria do you think should be used to measure team performance? What sources should be used for the appraisal? Should individual performance still be measured? Why or why not? Most would argue that team performance should be measured on objective, production-type data. The belief here is that those factors that are usually beyond an individual's control would be within the control of the team. It is also likely that most will suggest that individual performance should still be appraised. Many will relate to having worked on a group project in school and having a team member who did not contribute his or her share. 8.

...1 Revised 7/2002 1 Understanding and Using WSU Crop Enterprise Budgets1 Herbert R. Hinman Washington State University Cooperative Extension develops crop enterprise budgets for many of the major crops grown throughout Washington State. The purposes of these budgets are to estimate the costs and returns from producing these crops for research and policy purposes and to provide producers and their credit providers with a tool to use in enterprise selection and financing. To construct an enterprise budget, a group of progressive producers is assembled by the extension agent in the area. The agent and a farm management specialist from WSU work with this group to develop a consensus estimate of enterprise costs and returns. It is fully realized by those involved in this process that the resulting enterprise budget does not represent any one particular farm and must be modified by the individual producer to fit their situation. However, the resulting budget is a reasonable estimate for the area. Producers reviewing these published budgets often state that their own costs are significantly lower than those presented in the WSU budgets. Furthermore, others outside the industry may question the cost estimates and “break-even” prices stating that “since some WSU budgets show producers are operating at a loss, how do they stay in business?” To adequately address these concerns and questions, one must understand both the difference between “economic” and “cash” budgets...
