From the Paper:

"Since the inception of digital technology, companies collectively store, analyze, and access confidential information on customized databases. Although, these systems are exclusively password restricted, issues of theft internally by associates or externally by hackers have been a prevalent problem. Companies must be able to protect their information from unauthorized access, malicious code attacks, and inappropriate use of disclosure of information for personal or financial gain. In addition, housing massive amounts of hard copy files has to become too risky for unauthorized individuals to obtain. Virtually storing confidential information seems to be inevitable for businesses to function in today's high tech society. Universally, companies rely on networks and databases for not only storing information but for fast transference by email or peer-to-peer networks to other branches in different worldwide locations. Primarily, an information security system must be implemented in order to securely protect confidential documents or data. "
