DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTER-BASED SECURITY INFORMATION SYSTEM. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
Information is an important aspect of life. Vital information is the life wire or backbone of any organization. From sports statistics to the latest stock market price such facts keep people abreast of time.
Computing, printing, photography and some recording are all forms of automatic information processing.
In all of these processed , the information as perceived by man, is captured, processed, transmitted and stored.
Finally it is reproduced in a form which can be easily understood by man.
Next, there is a need to store the information so that it can be referenced when necessary . computers are unrivalled in their capacity to store data. Therein lies the importance of application software which configure the computer to act as an intelligent typewriter or entrepreneur, so long as the correct command are given.
A database is one of the most acceptable business software application today. It is a collection of related information that is organized for case of reference.
This means that one could maintain a database on paper, stored in file holders that were kept in file cabinets.
That was the case before the advent of computers. File had to be pulled out of cabinets, forms filled and paper shuffled.
This project describe how all these could be done electronically. It shows how information could be stored, modified and recalled instantly and accurately.
Information on staff of the establishment of case study is maintained, reports are lodged in and more reports are generated from these.
The security is the act of protecting companies asset, personal image, personnel and collection lives groups of properties. The main function of this department is to secure the labs and the properties that belongs to this institution. They also settle some problems in between the student and the staff. Eg streting of life and other things. The security department, I.M.T Enugu (S D I E) started in this institution in 1977. in security department, there was a thing they called “ABEEAT ”. BEEAT is an area given to the security man to look after it, during the working hour, to see if there will be any problem around. They also have a communication system, such as telephone, working talking, radio message etc.
This project ray emphasis on the security department (SOLT) of I.M.T. the security is one of the department under the function called health safety and environment East (HSEE). The main function of this department is to project assets in terms of lives and project.
