The open access journals are peer reviewed scholarly journals of Information Technology and Software Engneering. The open access journals are freely available on the public internet domain, allowing any end users to read, download, copy, distribute, prink, search or link to the full texts of the articles. These provide high quality, meticulously reviewed and rapid publication, to cater the insistent need of scientific community. These journals are indexed with all their citations noted. The top open access journals are indexed in SCOPUS, COPERNICUS, CAS, EBSCO and ISI.The Journal of Information Technology & Software Engineering is a open-access journal. One of the main ways to implement Information Security is to implement appropriate controls at crucial levels such as: Administrative, Logical and Physical. Administrative controls such as written policies, procedures, standards and guidelines form the framework for managing a business organization. Logical controls use data and software to control the access of information. Some examples of logical controls are: network firewalls, passwords, network intrusion detection systems and data encryption. Separation of network area and work place are Physical Controls. Another important physical control is separation of duties. By organizing defense strategies in layers, i.e. concentric levels of security, one can assure defense-in-depth. For example, to access a certain data, one can first apply secure access at the network level, at the host-computer level, at the application level and finally reach the data destination. In doing so, one can ensure overlapping layers or security by varying the strength of the firewall for different applications and therefore minimize risk. Information Security can be classified into different categories depending on the nature of the organization such as: Public, Sensitive, Private and Confidential for Business sectors; Unclassified, Sensitive but unclassified, Confidential, Restricted, Secret and Top-Secret and in cross-sectoral organizations as: White, Green, Red and Amber.
