The paper "Organized Crime and Corporate Crime" is an outstanding example of management coursework. One of the vices that are prevalent in all societies in the world is an information security breach. This vice is generally associated with negative outcomes for organizations and the business community at large. Information security risks are violations of the codes and set guidelines that are agreed upon by an organization so as to ensure the harmonious existence and running of the business (Gobert and Punch 10). They are illegal activities aimed at gaining unmerited advantages or in some cases to satisfy malicious ambitions in hurting the organization.
Information security can be classified in various categories depending on factors such as scale, the people who engage in the activity, and its outcomes to name but a few. Two of the major categories of large scale business crimes include organized crime and corporate crime. These forms of crime are economic crimes practiced by powerful and sometimes influential parties in society. They stand out due to the huge impact they have on the economy and lives of individuals. This paper seeks to identify the effects of information on decision making by analyzing two types of risks in an organization, corporate crimes, and organized crimes. Purpose of the report. In every organization, information systems are very important to facilitate the smooth running of the business.
Apple Inc. is my preferred company to analyze the extent and implications of corporate and organized crimes in business. The company has been on the top in the appliances industry and more so in the phone industry. To be able to remain in the second position in terms of market share on a global scale, the company must have employed very effective information security protocols.
Such protocols are set to avoid risks such as corporate crimes, organized crimes, systems breach, and illegal data access among other numerous crimes. Decision making in any company is enhanced by the ease of access to vital information on a particular threat or risk. This enables the management to make informed and sound decisions on how to move forward.
