Title: Identifying a weak link in the network chain: Determining how prepared Dominican IT administrators are to confront today’s security issues
Author: Henríquez Badía, Héctor
Abstract: Enterprises in Dominican Republic are growing in size; this means that sooner or later these enterprises will have the necessity to create an IT department to manage their systems and networks. This research studied how secure an enterprise can be with Network administrators from the mentioned country. This study used mixed methods to get more deep results about the mentioned problem. This research discovered that Dominican IT administrators are well versed in network security theory, but when it comes to apply this knowledge at work, according to the qualitative part of this research they are slothful, and take things lightly; they usually believe that the network of the company they work for can't be the target of an attack resulting in a high threat. In the end, the last conclusion that this research gives, is that for IT Administrators in Dominican Republic it depends more on the network security policies that the enterprise impose than the skills of the IT administrators.
