The most pressing and urgent issue for Communication and Information Technology is the lack of security which has serious implications on the ICT structure. These issues have resulted in tremendous business losses as electronic information can be stolen which can jeopardize the livelihood of thousands of people. The most serious interventions have been in the banking and government sector, but private sector business has also suffered because of stolen data. Similarly, training is another contentious issue which envisages network administrators and technical staff. This happens for several reasons which include a shortage of funds and lack of support from management.
Even the top management of most companies are completely unaware of ICT and do not give it the priority that it deserves. One reason might be the ICT is evolving at a very fast pace and the invention of new technologies makes obsolete the previous versions. It is quite difficult to keep abreast of all new technologies, so management must pay more attention and show greater commitment for keeping abreast of progress. ICT creates tremendous opportunities to help poor countries and also poor individuals and countries are now being connected to the global economy via Information and Communications Technologies. The use of ICT is useful in the adaption of mobile applications in how these technologies can strengthen and support one another by amplifying the impact of other implemented technologies.
The most promising use of ICT is in the field of medicine and mobile financial services because more people use mobile telephones than have access to clean drinking water. Currently there are billions of people who use mobile telephones but do not maintain bank accounts. The provision of affordable and sustainable financial services for such individuals is one of the basic aspects of ICT. This envisages reduced costs and advanced network exposure is essential for the sustenance of fundamental business models. Both important issues, lack of security and training will definitely influence ICT because the impact of digital security will compromise and render susceptible
ICT used in financial institutions, government and private businesses. Next the damage caused to the reputation of the institution or business and of course to the client will make users reluctant to use a system that cannot safeguard their business information and secrets. The worst hit might be online shopping because the access of credit cards by unauthorized personnel will cause losses. To prevent this, all users must guarantee adequate security and the training of its staff who handle transactions. ICT is here to stay because of its wider scope, lower costs and its easy adaptability for every sort of business and government institutions.
