Business managers are working more towards integration of internal security systems in the Information Management System. This involves restrictions on use of floppies, compact discs and pen drives inside the organization. Since all computers are networked, any transfer of file or data can be through the network. However, since all employees have an access to email, it is important that important electronic files are not being leaked out through the email system. It is important to monitor each and every outgoing email by a knowledgeable person who should be responsible enough to understand whether the information sent is for genuine purpose or an act of sabotage.
