Abstract: Businesses interchange information internally and manage electronic transactions with trading partners over internet. The success factor is integration of e-business processes with the existing internal infrastructure and applications, as well as with business partner|s systems. It is essential to provide correct and relevant information to the right receiver. In this paper, we present an approach of transmission and processing of information in the organisations systems by intelligent agents to improve information flow, provide availability and protect confidential information from being disclosed, modified and lost. To monitor and control information flow in e-business processes, we propose using Multi-Agent Systems (MASs).

Keywords: information security; integrity; availability; monitoring; control; intelligent agents; agent-based systems; multi-agent systems; MAS; feedback; information flow; confidential information; secure transmission; information processing.
