Information management in the era of the Internet. Selected issues

Introduction: "We are pleased to present a publication that was created following the first conference in the “IT and society” series, which took place on 15 November 2019 at the Faculty of Management and Social Communication at the Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University. The publication contains the transcripts of the conference participants’ lectures in particular. It is a review of the role played by information in managing various areas of human activity, and of the related academic interests of the conference participants. The authors also indicate practical applications of the results of the above theoretical considerations. The following issues can be clearly noted in this monograph: information-based civilization, i.e. defining civilization through information, the discussion of the concept of information, language as an information carrier, the role of information in private life and in business, information security, archiving and management. As the issues discussed are very extensive, the individual chapters are more of an introduction than the final solution to the problem. This specifically applies to the chapters referring to theoretical considerations. It is a truism that the information transformed into knowledge is a key element of management that allows for making most reasonable decisions. The volume starts with the considerations on the role performed by information in the society and a search for an answer to the question whether our civilization is an information civilization and what it means. The authors of the next chapter deal with the issue of automatic website translation and its effectiveness. The authors makes an attempt at finding an answer to the question why certain websites are translated automatically and others are not. The next chapter deals with the issue of our privacy with the vast amount of information currently available on the Internet. The author is looking for answers to questions about the possibility of controlling what happens with our personal information and whether it is a problem for young people today. The next chapter offers the visualized results of data analysis, and an original technique of detecting certain types of data errors used for the analysis. Since the accuracy of management decisions based on these analyses is important from an economic point of view, the ability to detect possible data errors will help to avoid making wrong decisions. Personal digital archives are an important aspect of information management. Each of us stores digital photos, videos and music, one’s own texts and texts received from others, and downloaded from the Internet. Maintaining order that allows you to quickly find the information you need is not easy and the author analysed the problems related thereto. Any information is valuable, therefore you need to keep it secure. The Authors of the next chapter deal with issues related to information security management. The final chapter focuses on the priorities in the implementation of management support systems. The primary task of these systems is information processing, and the priorities are determined by the importance of the processing effects for enterprise management. In all considerations, the Authors pay attention to the important role of information in making management decisions. The issues related to the core, processing, security and archiving of information are considered from the point of view of civilization, organization (enterprise) and from a personal point of view."
