URL :  Information Technology Security Handbook
Author : Multiple Authors
Detail : eBook Edition: 2003

The recent evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the sub-stantial innovation in the sector have resulted in a significant increase in productivity as well as the emergence of a wealth of new goods and services. As the power, capacity, and cost of microelectronics continue to improve, providing a 30% gain, approximately, inproductivity and power per unit of cost each year, we have all been beneficiaries of these trends. Today we live in a digital world, where information processing is inexpensive and telecommunications costs are decreasing. It is an increasingly interconnected world.

This Handbook is being prepared during a time of excitement about the potential of ICTs in furthering economic and social development. While ICTs have beenused for 40 years or more in many sectoral projectsimplemented by multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, the notion that ICTs are a critical crosscutting theme for many development initiatives is relatively new, dating back to the rise of the Internet in the early 1990s. This concept was first formalized in a multilateral agency by the infoDev Program at the World Bank Group in 1995,and was supported by the strong vision that its President,James Wolfensohn, projected on the importance of knowledge sharing for economic and social development. Since that time, optimism in the development community has run high, fed in part by the enthusiasm generated by technological developments embodied in low-cost PCs and the World Wide Web.
