Article Title: Data Security in Health Information Systems by Applying Software Techniques
by Odabi I. Odabi and Sogbaike C. Oluwasegun

The problem encountered in achieving data security within computer-supported information systems increased with development of modern computer systems. The threats are manifold and have to be met by an appropriate set of hardware precautions, organizational procedures and software construction rules are treated first, since the security power of a system is considerably determined by its proper design. A number of software techniques presented may support security mechanisms ranging from user identification and authentication to access control, auditing and threat monitoring. Encryption is a powerful tool for protecting data during physical storage and transmission as well.
