Article publication date: 1 April 2000



Investigates company Web sites and the use by them of IT. Posits that some companies are too much in a hurry to understand what is going on in IT, while others are just plain scared of the new technology. Looks at risk with regard to security and whether risk is changing for better or worse. Discusses further the Internet and the risks that are involved therein –– with security an important part. Gives guidelines, in depth, on the four main issues to IT governance: market; design; operation; and security and uses bullet points for emphasis.
