Where Did All the Data Go? Internet Security for Web-Based Assessments.
Shermis, Mark D.; Averitt, Jason
The purpose of this paper is to enumerate a series of security steps that might be taken by those individuals or organizations that are contemplating Web-based tests and performance assessments. From a security viewpoint, much of what goes on with Web-based transactions is similar to other general computer activity, but the recommendations focus on what can be done to avoid data compromise and loss or to resurrect such information should it be modified. Some very specific advice is offered. An appendix lists Web sites to visit about security. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
