Abstract

It is commonplace to say that the 11 September attacks have changed everything. A global revolution is changing business, and business is changing the world. With unsettling speed, two forces are converging; a new generation of business leaders is rewriting the rules of business, and a new breed of fast companies is challenging the corporate status quo. The Internet is an information superhighway, touching almost every aspect of the economy from government agencies, financial institutions, businesses, and professional organizations. With the year 2002 and its increasing number of court cases on Internet‐related issues, the courts are obviously still struggling with the question of intellectual property rights in an open source code environment supporting e‐commerce. By modeling and classifying the risks associated with cybersecurity issues, firms and specific individuals should not become a casualty of this cyberwar, nor become paranoid about the risks ‐‐ be informed and follow common business sense practices, policies, and procedures.
