DYNAMICS OF LEADERSHIP IN THE 21ST CENTURY
LULU Publishers
September 27, 2016
Dynamics of leadership in the 21st Century is produced to handle current leadership crisis in churches and Christian cycles. It is very important to note why the author decided to present this book. First, we should acknowledge the trinity of heaven (God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) as the first line of leadership in the church. Therefore, there is no other upper level and layer of leadership. Now that you are about to read chapter 1 to chapter 8 of this handbook, you should have the broader understanding of Jesus as the Leader of the Church, it is time for you to make up your own mind.

A Risk Analysis of E-Commerce: A Case of South African Online Shopping Space
IEEE
April 26, 2019
Globally, online shopping is on the rise with cybercrimes expected to rise. This study presents a risk analysis of the online shopping's e-commerce in South Africa using data collected through a variety of platforms where incidents and intelligence are reported and collected. Data was collected through a self-administered web-based online survey. A randomized sample size of 459 was used to analyze perceived risks associated with online shopping. This paper further outlines perceived risk results and findings by categorizing impact type, attack vector and threat type. Results of this study show that risks associated with finance losses impact the online shopping in the e-commerce space. This has not yet been fully realized in South Africa. Results analyzed in this study also look at the online shopping confidence across the retail industry, hospitality industry and other industries aggregated in this study. Financial loss is highlighted as the major perceived risk recording a highest confidence level in terms of the results which are further categorized in terms of impact type, attack vector and threat type. A conclusion has been drawn which indicate that there is a correlation around recognized risks, impact type, attack vector and threat type in the online shopping space in South Africa.

IEEE

This research paper explores the in-depth application of Data Mining in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in South Africa. The Industrial Revolution concept has fundamentally changed our society and economy. In South Africa, data mining phenomena has not been fully realized in the age of the 4IR.

Statistical observations also indicate that baselines, historical data and intelligence if used properly can benefit businesses to grow and develop.
