Penetration of information technology (IT) in almost every sector of the Indian economy is occurring at a very rapid pace. This has brought about a great transformation from a paper world to a digital world. Employees face new technological changes in their workplace almost every day. Some employees welcome the changes brought about by technology while others resist it and become defensive. These differences in employees’ reactions are influenced by a host of moderating variables existing in the environment. For the purpose of the present study, the researchers have adopted three moderating variables, namely, age, gender and experience (from the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology [UTUAT] model of Venkatesh, Morris, Davis, and Davis (2003, MIS Quarterly, 27, 3, 425–478). Hence, the article attempts to study the influence of the aforementioned moderating variables on the employees’ acceptance of IT at their workplace. The study has been conducted in the post offices falling under the Nalbari-Barpeta division of the Assam postal circle. The study is based on both the primary and secondary data.

Since the end of the 20th century the digital competence social and personal importance is increasingly heaves. Nowadays the basic level information technology knowledge is necessary because the penetration rate of the digital devices and the internet availability. Again the material world dangers the defense actions evolved. The cyber age started some decade ago. Civil people are not aware for attacks in the Cyber space and they can’t survey its danger. In Hungary the information technology and the internet penetration started in the last some decades. „Gen X” and older generation people users only in theirs adulthood met digital devices and its application. For the said generations to find a workplace was not required the digital competence, because the digital devices and the digital infrastructure wasn’t availability for everybody. This age-group has not enough motivation to improve the digital competence and herewith develop the safety awareness too. Nowadays this age-group needs significant helps to correspond to the challenge of the digital world. The digital competence and the safety awareness are improvable by the way of education. The knowledge levels are very different between the same age users. The assessment and the determination of the levels are a complex problem. Skills and routine levels of the users are approximately well determinable by questionnaire. The development of the different digital competence and safety awareness level user’s is workable by different knowledge transmission. I introduce in this paper like my research synthesis the assessment and the classification of the tested age-groups.

The article showed that the issue of intellectual property is a modern problem, and although there are many different views on the problem in this modern era, the main controversy has emerged from two perspectives. In the digital world, there are points where both groups advocate and oppose intellectual property. There is a general consensus that intellectual property promotes innovation and that producers need some degree of protection to be rewarded for their work. What they do not agree on is the extent of intellectual property rights and how long this restriction will last. Keywords: intellectual property, information, technology, communication, security

  This study aimed to identify the reality of adolescent girls' exposure to the dangers of the digital world according to the classification of the UNICEF organization and to reveal the most dangerous applications for them. This study relied on the method of social survey through the sample using the questionnaire tool, and the study sample reached (402) single female students Medium in the city of Riyadh, using stratified random sampling. The results of the study revealed that content-related risks are among the most common types of risks that adolescent girls face in the digital world, followed by communication risks and then behavioral risks. The results also showed that among the applications in which adolescent girls are most exposed to the dangers of the digital world (Instagram - Twitter - Snapchat), In terms of usage, YouTube ranked first in terms of usage, followed by Snapchat, Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter, Tik Tok, then PUBG and Fortnite. The study recommended the need to establish a specialized unit affiliated to the Communications and Information Technology Commission, which includes a number of specialists in the social, psychological and cybersecurity fields. It also includes visual and print media and celebrities of social networking sites who have an impact on the category of children and adolescents. The study also recommended the need to focus the efforts of the committee. To legalize the ethical content of information technology on the most popular websites and applications in the digital world, such as (Twitter, Instagram), by intensifying censorship and working to reduce the availability of harmful and inappropriate materials on these sites.

While information technologies, the Internet, and mobile technologies are introducing innovative approaches to knowledge exchange, communication, and new knowledge generation, the health system is comparatively slow in taking up these approaches towards healthcare service delivery. This chapter discusses the opportunities that information technology (IT) can offer to health care system innovation and improvement, highlights some key IT trends that will guide research and development, and highlights some current examples. Some action steps are suggested to accelerate the adoption of IT into routine health practices.

This article contains the efforts made by Muhammadiyah universities in Papua and West Papua related to religious moderation campaigns through information technology. There are at least three things that form the basis for the birth of this study: 1) the speed of the radicalism movement over which religion exists in the digital world; 2) potential for conflict and SARA, especially in Papua and West Papua 3) the importance of strengthening religious moderation in Indonesia, especially through digital media. The method used is library research, namely by exploring various literatures, both primary and secondary, related to the concept of religious moderation in Indonesia. The results of the study show that Muhammadiyah Papua universities in campaigning for religious moderation function as a counterweight in the digital world. That is, the narrative of religious moderation from the Muhammadiyah Papua university gave birth to a substantive and essential religious framing that is moderate and tolerant.

PurposeVery little or no study has explored the predictors of behaviour and traits that determine digital entrepreneurship (DE) success. In response, the purpose of this paper is to present a research model that takes information technology (IT) culture as a theoretical lens and personal innovativeness and experience in IT projects as theoretical constructs to predict behaviour and traits that explain DE success.Design/methodology/approachBased on the literature review, the authors propose hypotheses and a research model. The authors tested the model using structural equation modelling (SEM), by surveying a sample of digital entrepreneurs operating in the Yabacon Valley, Lagos, Nigeria.FindingsThe results indicate that IT culture is an essential predictor of achieving DE success. The results also suggest that an entrepreneur's innovativeness in IT and experience in IT projects have significant negative and positive moderating effects on the relationship between IT culture and achieving DE success.Research limitations/implicationsThis paper taps into a new setting – DE context – by exploring the moderation effects of an entrepreneur's innovativeness in IT and experience in IT projects on the link between their IT culture and achieving a successful DE outcome.Practical implicationsThis model offers managers an understanding of how IT culture and personal innovativeness and experience in IT work together to achieve DE success. Meanwhile, it sheds some light on managers to treat individuals with different levels of experience differently.Originality/valueThe authors theorise IT culture, personal innovativeness and experience in IT and show their effects on DE success, thus making an essential contribution to the information systems (ISs) and entrepreneurship research and practice. Moreover, the authors provide a novel methodology to conceptualise IT culture as a second-order hierarchical reflective construct by giving evidence that partial least squares (PLS) path modelling can assess a hierarchical model with moderating effects. This study answers scholars' call to construct more accurate explanations of innovation outcomes in an increasingly digital world.
