We explore HRIS and e-HR security by presenting information security fundamentals and how they pertain to organizations. With increasing use of enterprise systems such as HRIS and e-HR, security of such systems is an area that is worthy of further exploration. Even then, there is surprisingly little research in this area, albeit that extensive work is present in regard to HRIS privacy. While focusing on HRIS and e-HR security, we introduce aspects of HRIS and e-HR security and how it can be enhanced in organizations. A research model is also presented along with propositions that can guide future research.

1. Introduction
A human resource information system (HRIS) is an integrated computerized system used to acquire, store, manipulate, analyze, retrieve, and distribute pertinent information about an organization's human resources (Kavanagh, Gueutal, &
Tannenbaum, 1990). HRIS is similar to an enterprise resource planning system, with a caveat that it focuses exclusively on the human resource (HR) functions of an organization. A comparatively recent move toward electronic human resource (e-HR) systems has allowed organizations to offer a personalized interface to…...

...Q1. What is resource based view of a firm? Ans. The resource-based view (RBV) is a way of viewing the firm and in turn of approaching strategy. Fundamentally, this theory formulates the firm to be a bundle of resources. It is these resources and the way that they are combined, which make firms different from one another. It is considered as taking an inside-out approach while analyzing the firm. This means that the starting point of the analysis is the internal environment of the organization. Resources of the firm can include all assets, capabilities, organizational processes, firm attributes, information and knowledge. In short resources can be considered as inputs that facilitate the organization to perform its activities. An organization’s resource should have four attributes to provide the potential for competitive advantage. These form the VRIN characteristics. Valuable - When resources are able to bring value to the firm they can be a source of competitive advantage. Rare - Resources have to deliver a unique strategy to provide a competitive advantage to the firm as compared to the competing firms. Consider the case where a resource is valuable but it exists in the competitor firms as well. Such a resource is not rare to provide competitive advantage Inimitable - Resources can be sources of sustained competitive advantage if competing firms cannot obtain them. Consider the case where a resource is valuable and rare but the competing organizations can copy them......

...& liabilities are created during the operating cycle are called current assets & current liabilities. The total of all the current assets is called gross working capital & the excess of current assets over current liabilities is called net working capital. When entrepreneurs for financing working capital requirements approach the banks, the bank has to examine the viability of the project before agreeing to provide working capital for it. Financial institutions & bank while providing term loan finance to unit for acquisition of fixed assets does a detailed viability study. They have to ensure that the project will generate sufficient return on the resources invested in it. The viability of a project depends on technical feasibility, marketability of the products, at a profitable price, availability of financial resources in time & proper management of the unit. In brief the project should satisfy the tests of technical, commercial, financial & managerial feasibility. Proper co-ordination amongst banks & financial institution is necessary to judge the viability of a project & to provide working capital at appropriate time without any delay. If a unit approaches banks only for working capital requirement & no viability study has been done earlier which is done at the time of providing term loans, a detailed viability study is necessary before agreeing to provide working capital finance. In the view of scarcity of bank credit, its increasing demand from......

...know what the machine she is using is called or what is does. That shows that the bank did not give her sufficient training to familiarize herself with the name and the function of the machine. However, she did know how the machine works, but this doesn’t mean that she has been trained properly. A huge problem in the bank’s home office is the lack of a proper Training program. It can be an in-house training program especially designed for the new employees at the bank or a practical on-the-job training program. This will give new employees the change to practice, observe others, ask questions, learn from mistakes and familiarize themselves with the equipment that they are using. It is very important for the bank to utilize its available resources. In this case the supervisor could have given her proper, on-the-job training and informed and familiarized her with the name and function of the machine that she operates. 2. There is also mayor lack of communication in the bank’s home office. Ruth has been working there for almost two months and nobody has briefed or informed her on the name and function of the machine that she is using. The fact that Ruth’s supervisor or her colleagues did not notice that she does not know the function or name of the machine after she is has been using it for two months is worrying. It shows that there is very little interaction and communication between employees, supervisors and managers at the bank’s home office. Communication and interaction......

...thinks and feels while shopping. Yes, feeling – for in India, shopping remains an outing. And how does it compare itself to foreign stores? While it is not modeled on any one foreign retailer, the „basic construct‟ is taken from the experience of a number of successfully managed retail companies. It has leveraged expertise for a critical component like technology from all over the world, going as far as hiring expatriates from Littlewoods and using state-of-the-art ERP models. Shoppers‟ Stop went a step further by even integrating its financial system with the ERP model. Expertise was imported wherever it felt that expertise available in-house was inadequate. But the store felt there was one acute problem. A shortage of the most important resource of them all was trained humans. Since Indian business institutes did not have professional courses in retail management, people were hired from different walks of life and the training programme was internalized. By 1994, the senior executives at Shoppers‟ Stop were taking lectures at management institutes in Mumbai. The Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) even restructured its course to include retail management as a subject. Getting the company access to the latest global retail trends and exchange of information with business greats was an exclusive membership to the Intercontinental Group of Department Stores (IGDS). It allows membership by invitation to one company from a country and Shoppers‟ Stop rubs......

...Resource Allocation Graphs Roger Henriksson Department of Computer Science Lund University The possibility of deadlock is an undesired property (to say the least) of safety-critical real-time systems. Therefore, a method to verify that a system cannot deadlock, or to detect possible deadlock situations, is of tremendous value. One such method is resource allocation graphs. As stated in Operating System Concepts by Peterson and Silberschatz [PS85], the occurrence of deadlock requires among other things that hold-wait situations exist and a circular chain of such hold-waits must exist. A resource allocation graph attempts to graphically illustrate all the hold-wait situations in a system. In this graph it is possible to search for cases of circular hold-wait. In their book, Peterson and Silberschatz [PS85] (Section 8.2.2) introduce a method for drawing resource allocation graphs. However, in their version the resource allocation graph shows all the hold-wait-states that exist at any one given point in time. This is a good tool for illustrating a transient state in the system, but in order to use their version of the graphs for detecting any possible deadlock situation we would have to draw a graph for each and every possible combination of execution state for all threads in the system. Then, each and every one of these graphs would have to be analysed for cycles indicating circular wait. This is clearly unpractical. Instead, we modify the method of drawing......
