Business Law and Ethics
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Law, in its simplest form, is used to protect one party from another. For instance, laws protect customers from being exploited by companies. Laws protect companies from other companies. Laws even protect citizens and corporations from the government. However, law is neither perfect nor all encompassing. This course will introduce the student to the laws and ethical standards that managers must abide by in the course of conducting business. Laws and ethics almost always shape a company's decision-making process; a bank cannot charge any interest rate it wants to charge that rate must be appropriate. By the end of this course, the student will have a clear understanding of the legal and ethical environment in which businesses operate. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Identify sources of law in the United States; Describe the function and role of courts in the US legal system; Differentiate litigation from methods of alternative dispute resolution; List the elements of the major torts; List the essential elements of a valid contract; Describe how a contract can fail; Summarize the remedies available for breach of contract; Distinguish between real and personal property; Identify the various interests in real property and how they pass; Identify the requirements to hold various rights under intellectual property laws; Analyze the impact of the digital era on intellectual property rights; Distinguish between at-will employment and contractual employment; Identify laws that generally regulate the employer-employee relationship; Identify criminal acts related to the business world; Define white collar crime; Describe the various forms of business organization; Identify the major laws regulating business in the United States; Identify major ethical concerns in business today.

DEBIDO A QUE ACTUALMENTE SE ENCUENTRA EN REVISIÓN LA TESIS, EL DOCUMENTO ES PRIVADO POR EL MOMENTO,
PRÓXIMAMENTE SE DARÁ MAS INFORMACIÓN. GRACIAS.

La Tecnología de la Información (TI) siempre ha sido considerada un punto importante en las organizaciones empresariales, desde la perspectiva de los costos y de gestión. Es parte integral de la tecnología y los modelos de negocio de las empresas y las ha obligado a adaptarse a las nuevas estrategias de tecnología. Con los avances de infraestructura en la tecnología de la información y la comunicación, los nuevos modos de programación y los nuevos modelos en su uso; han llegado también nuevas formas de denominar los servicios de Internet. Factores como la mercantilización de hardware, software de código abierto, la virtualización, la globalización de la fuerza de trabajo y los procesos ágiles de TI han apoyado el desarrollo de nuevos modelos de tecnología y negocios. La computación en nube o Cloud Computing ofrece a las organizaciones más opciones en cuanto a cómo gestionar las infraestructuras, ahorrar costes, trabajar en equipo remotamente y delegar responsabilidades a proveedores de servicios Cloud o terceros, sin que los usuarios tengan que tener ningún conocimiento de la infraestructura que hay detrás.

La mayoría de las empresas se esfuerzan por reducir su coste del área de TI a través de los medios de virtualización. Esta demanda de reducir el costo ha dado lugar a la innovación de la computación en nube, ya que ofrece una reducción en los costos de administración así como reducción de costos de infraestructura. Los grandes beneficios del Cloud Computing permiten la adquisición de recursos computacionales de manera rápida, flexible y con un menor costo de implementación para los usuarios o empresas y es rentable para los proveedores, pues a pesar de presentar algunos riesgos, el poder trabajar con este nuevo tipo de tecnología permite al usuario ahorrarse tanto licencias, como la administración de servicios y de los equipos necesarios. Además de beneficios en términos de costo, el Cloud Computing puede presentar beneficios de seguridad ya que brinda a las empresas normas y estándares de seguridad de los más altos niveles internacionales. Incluso presenta beneficios ambientales y sociales. Todo gracias a la arquitectura conformada por los modelos con los cuales trabaja el Cloud Computing, denominadas por sus siglas: SaaS, PaaS e IaaS, las cuales corresponden al software, plataforma e infraestructura como servicios respectivamente.

El Cloud Computing se encuentra todavía en una etapa infantil y es una nueva tecnología para las micro, pequeñas, medianas o nuevas empresas. Existen pocas guías y marcos para una óptima adopción, la mayoría de ellos no se encuentran en la lengua española o no engloban todos los factores y cuestiones necesarias para generar confianza en esta tecnología. Por lo tanto, la mayoría de las empresas no están muy seguras en adoptar la tecnología. La presente tesis aborda el problema de confianza en la adopción y se discuten y analizan las barreras que se pueden presentar al adoptar la computación en nube en una empresa. Se presentan una serie de estrategias, una hoja de ruta y un marco que servirán como una guía para enfrentar los desafíos, cuestiones o factores en términos de costo, seguridad, confidencialidad, confianza, cumplimiento normativo, cumplimiento legal y cumplimento-TI, así como los factores organizacionales/humanos. En esta tesis se detallan exhaustivamente todos los temas referentes al Cloud Computing desde sus antecedentes, evolución, arquitectura, tecnología, modelos de negocio, modelos de servicio, modelos de despliegue, proveedores del servicio, etc. y así se logre un profundo entendimiento del paradigma de computación en nube. La metodología fue realizada siguiendo los lineamientos de diferentes estándares, normas, protocolos, estándares, certificados y mejores prácticas internacionalmente reconocidas respecto a la seguridad de la información en un entorno de TI ó enfocadas a entornos de Cloud Computing como: ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27002, COBIT, ITIL, KMIP, TLS/SSL y CCSK. Esto logra una metodología con procedimientos adecuados para la adopción de Cloud Computing en las micro, pequeñas y medianas empresas que ya adoptan servicios de nube o están interesados en su adopción.

Palabras clave: Computación en Nube, Cloud Computing, SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, Costo, Cumplimiento, Seguridad, Confidencialidad, Confianza, Micro, Pequeñas y Medianas Empresas, Adopción, Estrategias.

Capacity Building and Advocacy to Promote the Digital Accessibility Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Despite the progress that has taken place in the sector of technology, efforts of ensuring the inclusion of persons with disabilities remain limited. This is due to the limited opportunities of capacity building, weak awareness among engineers and industrialists, and the hindering of persons with disabilities’ voices in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) policy development and decision-making.

Inspired by the disposition of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities regarding accessibility, the Global Initiative for Information and Communication Technologies have been playing a pivotal role in promoting the persons with disabilities’ right to inclusive ICTs. Benefiting from the results of its Digital Accessibility Right Evaluation Index, G3ICT has realized the increasing commitment of CRPD States Parties to issues of ICT Accessibility. Nevertheless, The DARE index data show the remaining challenges encountered by governments’ procurement capacity for offering actual support to inclusive ICT programs, products, and services. ICT accessibility continues to be absent from higher education and vocational training programs. Furthermore, advocacy efforts of persons with disabilities and their organizations remain limited within the realm of digital accessibility.

This paper discusses G3ICT’s Digital Accessibility Right Education (DARE) Academy, and its role in tackling issues of digital divide through offering a platform of educational development and advocacy capacity enhancement for persons with disabilities around issues of ICT accessibility.
