Judy Simon Provides Expert Commentary on Information Security Issues
Dr. Judy Simon, Professor of Management Information Systems, was interviewed for an article that
appeared in the April 23, 2010, edition of the Memphis Business Journal. The article, entitled "Business owners need to ask the right questions about virtual
network security," focused on cloud computing security. She discussed the importance
of careful selection of vendors for cloud services, with several recommendations that
included participation in seminars/webinars that are now widely available to assist
businesses in making these decisions, as well as the need for development of a thorough
set of questions to ask in researching the options that exist for a particular size
and type of organization.
Dr. Simon was also interviewed for a news feature on security issues that have arisen
related to online coupons that are available to download, some of which are scams
that attempt to collect personal data. The feature aired on the local ABC News television
channel on May 5, 2010.
