The crux of the paper's argument is that, if organisations are to counter computer fraud, they must adopt suitable personnel procedures. The authors start by examining previous research into computer fraud focusing on the work of Albrecht et al and Bologna. They then set out personnel practices and procedures which, it is maintained, provide a powerful deterrent to computer crime. The paper ends with an analysis of the Audit Commission's publication, ‘Survey of Computer Fraud and Abuse’ and an examination of cases where improved personnel procedures may have deterred computer abuse.
