Principles of Information Systems, Ninth Edition 7-2 Overview To say that the Internet has had a big effect on organizations of all types and sizes would be a huge understatement. Since the early 1990s, when the Internet was first used for commercial purposes, it has affected all aspects of business. Businesses use the Internet to sell and advertise their products and services, reaching out to new and existing customers. Whatever your career, you will probably use the Internet daily. This chapter starts by exploring how the Internet works and then investigates the many exciting opportunities for using the Internet to help you achieve your goals.

Identify several issues associated with the use of networks.
