A Fourth Key Factor

“There was a time when vindictive former employees sought revenge by pilfering some office supplies or spreading a juicy rumor about the boss. But in today's computerized offices, angry workers and disgruntled employees can access computer systems and destroy data, potentially causing millions of dollars in damage.”


5 th key factor an it shortage

5th Key Factor: An IT Shortage?

The explosion in use of the Internet is straining our scarce technical talent. The average level of system administrator technical competence has decreased dramatically in the last 5 years as non-technical people are pressed into service as system administrators. Additionally, there has been little organized support of higher education programs that can train and produce new scientists and educators with meaningful experience and expertise in this emerging discipline.
