Assignment: TACC403 – Accounting Information systems

You are given the following problem to analyse and answer the questions listed at the end of it and submit your answers as a report. Make sure to follow the requirements and report structure mentioned below under a separate heading.
Problem:
Because improved computer security measures sometimes create a new set of problems—user antagonism, sluggish response time, and hampered performance— some people believe the most effective computer security is educating users about good moral conduct. Richard Stallman, a computer activist, believes software licensing is antisocial because it prohibits the growth of technology by keeping information away from the neighbours. He believes high school and college students should have unlimited access to computers without security measures so that they can learn constructive and civilized behaviour. He states that a protected system is a puzzle and, because it is human nature to solve puzzles, eliminating computer security so that there is no temptation to break in would reduce hacking.
1. Do you agree that software licensing is antisocial?
2. Is ethical teaching the solution to computer security problems?
3. Would the removal of computer security measures reduce the incidence of computer fraud? Why or why not?
