E-government introduces challenges in managing and enforcing security standards. This is happening in a time when all governments face an ever-decreasing budget process complicated by political pressures, cyber warfare, cybercrime, and the unpredictable behavior of users. This course will examine the challenges governments face implementing, managing, and securing initiative while studying the implementation of multiple types of e-government systems. Students will take away from this course an ability to understand the complex relationship between people, budget, implementation, security, and standards when building or analyzing an e-government initiative.
