New Databases: FAITS & SMP

ITM, PSA, and Police Science students rejoice! We have two new databases especially for you.
FAITS stands for Faulkner Advisory for IT Studies. Topics covered in this database include IT infrastructure, wireless communications, security, telecom, data networking, convergence, and information management. In addition to articles and reports, FAITS has tutorials, industry standards, company profiles and more. Healthcare students can also rejoice--there is a section specific to healthcare IT topics in FAITS as well. Time to read up on electronic medical records....

SMP stands for Security Management Practices. Topics include securing the enterprise network, planning for disruptions, managing risk, protecting intellectual property, protecting and training employees, establishing security best practices, deploying network security appliances, using biometric technologies for network and physical security, managing organizational risk and more. SMP primarily offers news reports and has a weekly digest summarizing major events in security.
