Why is an organization's finance department critical to the success of an information security program? Finance department employee failings can weaken even the strongest security measures. For example, common practices are employees leaving machines logged on while out for breaks; recording passwords on sticky note on the computer's monitor; or revealing confidential information to un-authorized people (Krishnakumar, 2016) . Other discussion, the top management claims that management tends not to initiate measures to ensure the security of organizational information because generally they feel that the IT department is responsible for choosing the proper technologies, installing the required software, maintaining the technology in the organization and keeping the organization’s information secure. The top management don’t support or understand the need of information security the implementation of information security will fail ( Al-Awadi & Renaud, 2014).

    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.
