Title: Computer Users' Guide to the Protection of Information Resources
Published: October 01, 1989
Abstract: While excellent progress has been made in computer technology, very little has been done to inform users of the vulnerability of data and information to such threats as unauthorized modification, disclosure, and destruction, either deliberate or accidental. This guide will make users aware of some of the undesirable things that can happen to data and will provide some practical solutions for reducing the risks to these threats.
