In a distributed computing environment, ownership of the security problem is avoided by management and users alike. Not only integrity and confidentiality, but also network (i.e. information, availability must be considered). Management has begun to realize that the security provided in the mainframe era has not been provided in the distributed environment. What must be considered now are the following issues: logical access controls access all platforms; improved network and platform reliability, and the ability to recover readily from disruption and disasters. Concludes that information security is absolutely vital to the survival of today′s enterprises and therefore should be given the emphasis it deserves at all enterprise levels.
