Data Protection 2 In the event that there were no rules touching on credit card information stored on merchants computers I would definitely feel insecure. This is because the information captured by the merchant may be hacked, shared or sold to unscrupulous individuals to my disadvantage. I am of the view that in the absence of information security policies touching on data, then ecommerce transactions would be very few or even nonexistent. Ecommerce is thriving because of trust that information shared will be safe (Porcedda, 2012). Without this trust, which is brought about by the rules safeguarding data, then people would opt to use traditionally trusted brick and mortar stores. The internet security policy aims at regulating the online conduct of users. The policy aims at discouraging practices such as stealing of passwords, unauthorized downloading of copyrighted materials, hacking into websites, sharing confidential information or even fraud.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
