Computer Crime at CEFORMA: A Case Study

Gurpreet Dhillon, Leiser Silva and J Backhouse


This paper assesses the problems related with managing computer related crime. It argues that organisations that focus exclusively on technical and formal control measures in their systems, fall short of protecting their resources. The argument is conducted by analysing the pre and post computer related crime situation at CEFORMA. The case illustrates how inappropriate control measures can adversely affect integrity of an organisation.
