Comparative Analyses of Management of Government and Private Media in South East Nigeria (Published)

This study analysed the management of government and private media in South East Nigeria, using Unity FM Abakaliki  Ebonyi State and Dream FM Enugu, Enugu State as focal point. The study was anchored on the gatekeeping theory of the mass media. The survey method of research was adopted with an interview guide containing 8 open ended questions for 12 respondents from both media houses. Data generated were presented and analyzed with the aid of simple percentages and frequency tables. Findings show that there are in-house policies that guide their day to activities in the media stations. The major theme in the policy of the government owned media is to relay the government activities to the people and present the government to the people in good light. Findings also indicate that the owners personally employ and educate the editors on the policies and follow them up to ensure that they edit edit reports and programmes content in line with the in-house polices of the management. The study further indicate that the privately owned media has the main objective of profit-making. In the both cases, gatekeeping affect the quality of their programme content. Professional bodies such as the Nigerian Union of journalists (NUJ), should ensure that journalists working in both public and privately managed media strictly adhere to the Code of ethics of their profession.

The Management of Information and Operational Risk in both the Public and Private Sectors (Published)

: Information technology is widely recognized as the engine that drives any growing economy, giving industries a competitive advantage in global markets, enabling the federal government to provide better services to its citizens, and facilitating greater productivity as a nation. Organizationsin the public and private sectors are beginning to depend on technology-intensive information systemsto successfully carry out their missions and business functions. Information systems can include diverse entities ranging from high-end supercomputers, workstations, personal computers, cellular telephones, and personal digital assistants to very specialized systems (e.g., weapons systems, telecommunications systems, industrial/process control systems, and environmental control systems). Information systems are subject to serious threats that can have adverse effects on organizational operations (i.e., missions, functions, image, or reputation), organizational assets, individuals, other organizations, and the nation at large by exploiting both known and unknown vulnerabilities to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the information being processed, stored, or transmitted by those systems. Threats to information and information systems can include purposeful attacks, environmental disruptions, and human/machine errors and result in great harm to the national and economic security interests of the nation. Therefore, it is imperative that leaders and managers at all levels understand their responsibilities and are held accountable for managing information security risk—that is, the risk associated with the operation and use of information systems that support the missions and business functions of their organizations.
