Information Security for Sustainable Development
With the advent of electronic commerce (e-commerce), business became dependent on information systems in a new manner. Consequently information security turned out to be more and more important for data-protection. In opposed to previous systems, the changing requirements for security must be solely filled by new policies and risk analysis. Security requirements can be defined with the help of investigations in the business environment. Mobile commerce (m-commerce) is a rising discipline which includes applications, mobile devices and wireless networks. Besides the majority of existing ecommerce applications can be adapted to run in a wireless environment. M-commerce also involves many more new applications such as, mobile financial services, user and location specific mobile advertising, mobile inventory management. Therefore, most of the mcommerce research should focus on applications, and security issues. To supply these demands, we need to understand the necessary security requirements for every kind of implementation. The aim of this work is to describe an approach for the importance of the information security for sustainable development.
