As the diffusion and use of technology applications have accelerated in organizational and societal domains, behavioral and social dynamics have inevitably created the potential for negative as well as positive consequences and events associated with technology. A pressing need within organizations and societies has therefore emerged for robust, proactive information security measures that can prevent as well as ameliorate breaches, attacks, and abuses. The Handbook of Research on Social and Organizational Liabilities in Information Security offers a critical mass of insightful, authoritative articles on the most salient contemporary issues of managing social and human aspects of information security. Aimed at providing immense scholarly value to researchers, academicians, and practitioners in the area of information technology and security, this landmark reference collection provides estimable coverage of pertinent issues such as employee surveillance, information security policies, and password authentication.
