Decision making for setting new policies is a challenging process as the current policy making system is utterly flawed. A policy is introduced by the decision maker when the problem domain was fully consulted by experts in the field. Not always all the consultants and advisers agree on details or even basics of such a course of action. The need for an intelligent predictive system is emerging. Policy making on environmental issues are even shoddier as the environmental systems are habitually complex, and adaptive; and introduction of new technologies can easily affect the guiding strategies already taken. This paper outlines the principles of Knowledge Management Systems. It then reflects on Influence Diagrams’ suitability for construction of such an information system through the use of the London Plan case study. An application of such a system is outlined by means of a probabilistic knowledge based IS which is developed by Influence Diagrams and can be utilized as an Environmental policy modeler and/or DSS.

London Plan is the London mayor’s Spatial Development Strategy. This strategic long-term plan comprises of proposals for different aspects of change within the London boundary. Furthermore, the proposals include chapters outlining adjustments in each facet. Policy 4A.2 reflects the Climate Change Mitigation scheme. Some consultations and research works have been performed to this point, but an extensive cost assessment has not been done. This paper reflects a financial assessment by means of Influence Diagrams based upon the London Plan policies 4A.X.

Cognitive biometrics is a novel approach to user authentication/identification which utilises a biosignal based approach. Specifically, current implementations rely on the use of the electroencephalogram (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG), and the electrodermal response (EDR) as inputs into a traditional authentication scheme. The scientific basis for the deployment of biosignals resides principally on their uniqueness -for instance the theta power band in adults presents a phenotypic/genetic correlation of approximately 75%. The numbers are roughly the same for ECG, with an heritability correlation for the peak-to-peak (R-R interval) times of over 77%. For EDR, the results indicate that there is approximately a 50% heritability score (h2). The challenge with respect to cognitive biometrics based on biosignals is to enhance the information content of the acquired data.

The apprehensions around the climate change and energy crisis have led to the emergence of the need for sustainability analysis. The subject of sustainability is now of wider inclusivity as it can be applied to almost any field of study. There are different approaches to model sustainability; however the systems approach is the focus of consideration in this paper. The proposed model for sustainability incorporates the use of neural networks to develop a complex adaptive system. The complexity of the system is simplified using influence diagrams or knowledge management techniques.

The People’s Republic of China (PRC) has a long tradition on military strategy. In the end of the 20th century this was one of the first nations to prepare itself for the new emerging concept of war that includes the combat in cyberspace, both with the intention to obtain privileged information (espionage), to reduce the enemy attack and/or military capability or even to create casualties. This paper presents an overview on the known facts on this issue, concluding on an urgent need to improve the security technologies and policies of the digital systems used by the governments, namely in what concerns to authentication processes and the need for occidental countries to prepare personnel with knowledge on the culture, on the language and on the thought of the PRC, so that they can be ready for the next steps of this (re)emerging nation.

The Information security is considered a risk management strategy. Risk management has always been an integral part of an Information Security programme. Hence, security should be addressed as one of the many key risk areas. Incorporation of information security within an It risk management programme elevates the importance of it and ties its practice together with other key IT risks. The Securities and Exchange Commission requires a formal risk assessment to evaluate the factors that impact an organization’s performance, because IT risk management and information security’s role is critical. The performance of risk assessments are a key component of good information security, mainly risk identification. In addition to return-on security-Investment strategy, the other trend is developing a culture of shared accountability. The reason being- the security is supposed to educate the business leader about threats, costs and consequences on the organization and the effectiveness of the possible remedies. This paper will report on an ongoing research to identify the function of Information systems security and its affiliation to Information technology risk management.
