Technology Supporting Business ProcessesOver the twentieth century, the ability to process information in terms of labor units has improved by a factor in the order of 1 to 5 trillion. This improvement represents a compounded growth rate of between 30 to 35 percent per year for a century. At the turn of the twentieth century, the mechanical calculator offered a modest productivity increase but the number of workers required to maintain the accounts of a medium-sized business still remained very high. Many tasks would take a large investment in equipment and a significant number of accountants’ weeks to process. A hundred years later, the same tasks can be completed by a standard desktop computer in minutes. The challenge for management has transitioned from a simple reduction in labor requirements to leveraging the increased processing power to develop competitive, efficient, and profitable organizations.With this example in mind, use the assigned readings for this module and respond to the following: Explain how information systems influence businesses to be more competitive, efficient, and profitable.Provide at least one example for each factor. Write your initial response in 300 words. Your response should be thorough and address all components of the discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation

Implementing Network and Personnel Security Measures The security consulting firm that you work for has been awarded a contract to implement a new IT Security Infrastructure to secure the Information Technology data assets of a local government agency.  This agency has many remote workers that are in the field and need to connect back to the agency’s system servers. The remote workers use a wireless network infrastructure to connect their electronic pads to servers located within the local government’s facility. The remote workers have needs to access property records, cite zoning violations electronically, and validate building permits. The public demand to expand IT services has grown faster than its ability to provide an adequately secured infrastructure. In fact, this government entity was previously featured on the news for having minimal security controls and methods for accessing property tax information of citizens. The inadequate security allowed many construction trade businesses to illegally access property records and zoning violations. Your role in this project is to enhance and optimize the security mechanisms for accessing these systems.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:1. Create an information flow diagram, using Visio or Dia, which:     a. Illustrates how remote users will securely connect to the government agency’s network.       b. Illustrates the patch of network devices that data packets must travel to get from server to remote user’s device and back to          server.         Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.2. Provide an equipment list of network security devices that would be needed to ensure the integrity and sensitivity of private     information. In this list:    a. Propose at least two (2) vendor brands per each device and the associate costs required to procure these items.    b. Identify the functionality each device serves and the expected benefits the government agency should experience upon the         successful installation of this equipment.3. Develop a maintenance plan that should be recommended to the government agency to ensure having the latest security measures    available within the network in which you:    a. Describe the risks associated with not fulfilling the activities outlined within your maintenance plan.    b. Indicate specific activities, personnel / resources required, and frequency of execution.4. Recommend at least four (4) physical security measures that could be developed to ensure the electronic perimeter of electronic     assets.5. Recommend at least two (2) physical security vendors that could achieve the four (4) security measures you identified. Justify your    recommendations with your response.6. Evaluate and consider activities that the Human Resources Department could perform in order to complement and instill security     from within the organization. Provide a rationale with your response.7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality     resources. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.
