Employee discipline forms an important aspect in any organization. Whenever misconduct or disciplinary cases occur within an organization it is vital to conduct disciplinary investigation in order to obtain the necessary facts of the case. The essay therefore explores the importance of conducting disciplinary investigations within an organization. Employee discipline is a difficult experience that managers and supervisors encounter in the day to day activities within an organization. Before any disciplinary action is taken against an employee for alleged breach investigations should be conducted. The major purposes of conducting an investigation include establishing the rules or regulations that are purported to have been breached by the employee.
Investigations aim at obtaining evident that will be relevant to the allegations being made.
The evidence may be in form of facts surrounding the alleged breach of the rules or regulations. The facts may be obtained from witnesses that are involved in the occurrences of the breach of the organization’s rules and regulations (Alexander, 2000).
Another main purpose of conducting disciplinary investigations in regards to employees in an organization is to obtain the employees version of the events concerning the alleged breach. This will encompass the reasons for the misconduct if the case is not

disputed by an employee. While obtaining employee version of the facts the employee should be made aware of the allegations that are being leveled against them and the source of evidence if any that the organization relies on (Colaprete, 2007).

...Security and Management week 1 conference 1 Since 9/11 security has moved from the periphery to the center, with the Government, Private Organizations, and individual citizens placing more emphasis on the need for Security. Security services today are sophisticated and complex it involves the use of criminal and civil law, investigations, policy formulation, psychology, and sociology just to name a few. The most important purpose of security is that of guardian and protector (ortemeir 2013 pg. 4). Ortemeir states that large facilities can utilize security personnel, instead of mailroom staff, to provide internal mail and delivery services, thus increasing value to the organization by cutting delivery costs, while increasing patrol activity. In an organizational sense security is a function and responsibility that is throughout the operation of all public agencies and private institutions. (Ortemeir 2013 pg. 4-5) The roles of public law enforcement are to keep the peace, maintain order, police public property, and respond to and investigate reported crimes on public, and private property, the public police have no authority to enforce a private organizations policies and procedures. Some of the benefits of Law enforcement, and Security partnerships for example include Law enforcement can prepare private security to assist in emergencies, obtain free training, and services, reduce the numbers of calls for service.

Security and Risk Management

...can no longer be managed on an ad hoc basis, but should be sewn into the fabric of corporate management. In other words, an organization will not be able to make strategic choices to maximise performance without having a clear understanding of the risk it faces. People make risk decisions at all levels in an organization, ranging from individual responsibilities to collective decisions made at Board level. Allowing individuals too much autonomy within an organisation can have disastrous consequences. Consequently, compliance and adherence to regulations is important to all risk management programmes, which in turn have focused organisations on corporate governance as a form of management control. Risk analysis helps put in place checks and procedures that reduce the chance of negative outcomes. In relation to the risk management situation, we can always relate to Nick Leeson's case, who had lost Baring’s Bank $1.3 billion on trading derivatives, destroying Barings and its reputation within a short period of time. Inter-related Crisis and Risk management Crisis and Risk management are two different types of management control. Crisis Management is the term that describes a process, or collection of processes that are put in place to handle an unexpected event that threatens to harm an organization, a business, an operation or an individual or group of people. Crisis management often requires decisions to be made within a short time frame, and often after an event has......

Computer Updating and Security Management

...Computer Updating and Security Management Once again the IT Administrators have asked to clarify certain points to them on the implementation of the new network being installed. This takes in account that they know the basics of Server 2008 for windows, and have some knowledge working it. Let us then answer their questions on computer updating and security management. The first thing to address is the software and service Microsoft Server 2008 had in place for centralized updates. IT has a program called WSUS that allows all updates to be centralized from one place. It allows update support for a lot of computers up to 100,000, which leaves more than enough room for the school to grow. Since the main office will be the center I would set up a standard Hierarchy of WSUS (Moskowitz, n.d.). An upstream server which is located in the main office will approve and deploy the updates. The downstream server would be located at the school site. They will download the updates from the upstream server and parceled out to the computers/clients allowed. This will be a good fit for updates that are deemed unnecessary or not wanted by the organization and easily managed from a central location. The security measures in place will be of course IPSec. The communications from the main office to the school will be using Layer Two Tunneling Protocol or L2TP (Freelancer, 2008). This will ensure a secure connection at the highest possible setting. Group policies will be in place in order to...

...IT Security and Disaster Recovery Management Dr. Kenneth Phillips August 26, 2013 Introduction The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality has evolved from a means of recognizing and promoting exemplary quality management practices to a comprehensive framework for world class performance, widely used as a model for improvement. As such, its underlying theoretical framework is of critical importance, since the relationships it portrays convey a message about the route to competitiveness. This paper will compare how two schools us the support related to the validity of the Baldrige framework by examining both schools plans at the level of its theoretical constructs. By moving beyond the specific criteria, I seek to examine it in a larger context, how these schools and business in general can use it for strategic planning. Baldrige and Plans The Baldrige literature has been influential in providing guidance for achieving performance excellence in businesses. The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Improvement, which embodies many elements from UC Berkeley and UC Boulder strategic IT plans, offers a framework for implementing a set of high-performance management practices, including customer orientation, business process management, and fact-based management. This framework points to the interconnections between information and analysis, process management, customer management, and performance management and acknowledges that the management of...

Erp Security Management

...Anthony Wataka Accounting Information Systems Information Security Management within ERP Systems Research Paper Introduction This paper will discuss research on Information Security Management (ISM) within Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems since information security continues to be a hot topic in the business world. The major focus of the paper will be threefold: an analysis of the ERP systems in the present day, a relation of these systems to the accounting and auditing world, and finally, the future of the technology, given its vast impact in the business world. Notable ERP Systems Research Key research pertinent to this paper includes the works of Grabski et al. (2011) who discuss various issues relating to the security environment, as regards the ERP systems. They talk about the risk associated with ERP systems implementation and define it as a “problem that has not occurred but has the potential to cause loss” (Grabski et al. 2011, p. 55). They mention that there is a need for ERP audit techniques, such as embedded audit modules, to control security risks (2011, p.55). This paper will utilize their research work to analyze auditing in an ERP environment by examining security risks and internal controls after ERP implementation. Additionally, Hunton et al. (2004) try to address the issue of risk associated with ERP systems, in the context of auditing (p.1-23). Hunton et al. (2004) analyze how financial auditors compare ERP systems related risks to...

Network Management and Security

... (Name) (Instructors’ name) (Course) (Date) Network Management and Security A telecommunication Management Network, commonly known as TMN, is an infrastructure that provides interfaces for connection between several types of operating systems and telecommunications equipment, so as to manage the telecommunication service and network. This is from Glenn Warnock and Nathoo Amin (215). Also, it enables the functioning of the management information, which is exchanged through these interfaces. On the other hand, 5620 SAM is widely used for developing distributed systems, as it provides the infrastructure for interoperability of several object oriented management applications. With this application, the 5620 enables applications of operating systems to interoperate with the service access manager, allowing it to provide connections, isolate and manage network issues across an Alcatel network (225). With this, users can access management information transparently and independent of the hardware and software platform. This therefore enhances the portability of applications, which are developed across the multiple platforms of management. The principles and concepts of the TMN that can be matched with the features and functions of the 5620 platforms include the specification translation and the interaction translation. Redundancy is also an important feature. It is the automatic transfer of data network to stand by, and protects the network against hardware failure,......
