Abstract:

The problem of providing cost-effective data security safeguards in personal information databanks is addressed. A structural model of databank systems is formulated, the role of its elements in providing, or threatening, of data privacy and security are discussed, and a suitable classification system is established. Within this framework, a model of the economic interactions of the databank protector and potential intruders is developed. The variables of this model are the value of information to the subjects, protector and intruders expenditures by the protector and the intruder and effectiveness of data security as well as intrusion techniques. Various relevant characteristics of these variables and their relationships are discussed. Author
