Strategic component answers the question "why do security enterprise problems exist?" This question of security leads to developing security policies that deal with people issues, and evaluates internal/external risks.
Organizations are urging top executives to make information security a priority. Therefore, quality and trustworthiness of information are becoming key business issues (Ezingeard et al, 2005). To better accomplish information security in an organization, a management level infrastructure approach is needed. Just as information and data characteristics are different at the different levels of management, information security has different characteristics at the different levels of management.
These levels of management are strategic, tactical, and operational. At the operations level, transaction data is produced and serves as input to create information. Maintaining and monitoring of integrity, confidentiality, and availability of the transaction data are primary objectives which are supported by organizational procedures and guidelines. At the tactical level, information is interpreted and utilized in decision making. Implementations of preventative, detective, and responsive controls are a primary objective which is supported by organizational standards. Further analysis/aggregation of the information creates knowledge to help make strategic level decisions Information security policy provides a framework to ensure that systems are developed and operated in a secure manner. Such policies must consider internal and external threats and risks. They must address issues such as privacy and be current to changing technologies. Additionally, policies must complement and be compatible with federal, state, and local laws. Zhang & Suhong (2006) indicated the need for secure information sharing policies in Internet-based supply chain management. Such…...

...theories, this paper discusses the management of the political environment through behavioural theory (Cyert and March, 1963). It attempts to explain international enterprises' political actions in managing the political environment. The management of political actors is explained in the context of the internationalisation of the firm (Johanson and Vahlne, 1977; Buckley and Ghauri, 1999) and network theory (Johanson and Vahlne, 1990; Kooiman, 1993; Hakansson and SneÊ hota, 1995). Our aim is to describe and discuss the political behaviour of international firms in relation to the European Union (EU). The study analyses cases regarding the interaction between the EU and firms that are in different phases of internationalisation (in terms of export and direct investment). Inasmuch as firms' business activities are interrelated with political activities, knowledge of political behaviour can enhance our understanding of a firm's market behaviour (Ring et al., 1990). Very closely connected to this inquiry is the research on lobbying and influence of business and interest groups on political actors (AustenSmith, 1987; Potters, 1992; Andersen and Eliassen, 1996). 0148-2963/01/$ ± see front matter D 2001 Elsevier Science Inc.

Importing is the buying of products abroad and bringing them to the home market. Countertrade is a business transaction where all or partial payments are made in kind rather than cash. Both finished and intermediate goods, such as raw materials and components are subject to trade. While on the other hand international investment refers to the transfer of assets to another country, or acquisition of assets in that country through foreign direct investment and contractual...

Medicines Co Marketing

...but incurs significantly higher costs to produce, making the drug difficult to attractively price. This difficulty in pricing stems from a poor positioning strategy for Angiomax which does not maximize the perceived value (PV) that the drug provides to its key customer segments. Therefore, Medicines Co., must develop a positioning strategy that maximizes the perceived value of Angiomax. Medicines Co. must first determine the critical characteristics its key customer segments (doctors, hospital administrators, and pharmacists) value in an anticoagulant (Appendix A). Medicines Co. should then develop a positioning statement that highlights Angiomax’s strengths for its most compatible customer segment – doctors. The positioning statement for doctors would be “Angiomax outperforms Heparin in high-risk patients resulting in significantly fewer complications while performing angioplasty procedures”. The focus should be on doctors because of the high overlap between Angiomax’s benefits and doctors’ values in an anticoagulant. Additionally, by providing doctors with information (Appendix B) that quantifies the cost savings from reduced complications in high-risk patients, Medicines Co. bridges the gap between the true economic value (TEV) and the PV that doctors have for Angiomax. This solution is the best because it focuses on what doctors’ value in an anticoagulant. From the case, we know that doctors are key customers for adopting new drugs and that hospital......

A preliminary analysis of the spatial determinants of firms’ export activities by Indian states has been undertaken in this study. The size of technological knowledge stock, port facilities and credit availability in a state are observed to be favouring higher export intensity of local firms. All these call for state’s policy attention to improve regional knowledge base, strengthening of port facilities or ensuring better transportation networks to ports and improved credit availability if local firms were to face the least hurdles in their efforts to internationalize. Fiscal incentives continue to promote firms’ export activities. In addition, firms own characteristics considerably determine their export......

Need for Export Credit Insurance

...Need for export credit insurance | | Payments for exports are open to risks even at the best of times. The risks have assumed large proportions today due to the far-reaching political and economic changes that are sweeping the world. An outbreak of war or civil war may block or delay payment for goods exported. A coup or an insurrection may also bring about the same result. Economic difficulties or balance of payment problems may lead a country to impose restrictions on either import of certain goods or on transfer of payments for goods imported. In addition, the exporters have to face commercial risks of insolvency or protracted default of buyers. The commercial risks of a foreign buyer going bankrupt or losing his capacity to pay are aggravated due to the political and economic uncertainties. Export credit insurance is designed to protect exporters from the consequences of the payment risks, both political and commercial, and to enable them to expand their overseas business without fear of loss. | At the same time one has to understand the limitations of SMEs, which are: • Low Capital base • Concentration of functions in one / two persons • Inadequate exposure to international environment • Inability to face impact of WTO regime • Inadequate contribution towards R & D • Lack of professionalism GENERAL FINDINGS OF FIELD SURVEY OF SMALL & MEDIUM INDUSTRIES / ENTERPRISES The study that was undertaken by contacting 23 small and medium scale industries......

...Duty Exemption and Drawback Background[1] The Duty Exemption and Drawback facility enables exporters and deemed exporters to claim, within 6 months of exports, the duties and taxes paid on raw materials used in the export process. Apart from imported raw materials, businesses are entitled to duty exemption and drawback on taxes paid on utilities and, in some case, on the fuel consumed in the production process. Eligible exporters can claim their drawback by filing their claim with the Duty Exemption and Drawback Office (DEDO), which is an agency under the authority of the National Board of Revenue. The Customs Act, 1969 and the VAT Act 1991 governs the process. While Chapter VI of the Customs Act 1969 provides many of the guidelines, since the promulgation of the VAT Act 1991, drawback can also be claimed on inputs under Section 13, Rules 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 32(a), 33 and 34. Additional SROs that guide the process include SRO 154 (June 9, 2005) and SRO 157 (June 9, 2005). Eligible exporters can enjoy this facility under two broad categories – a duty exemption or a duty drawback. Under the duty drawback system, exporters get refunds of the duties and indirect taxes they have paid on imported inputs. Duty may be refunded in three ways: a) actual drawback, b) national drawback, and c) flat rate drawback. Due to fewer complications and ease of operation, the flat rate system remains the most preferred method of refund. There are also two other ways of making......
