  7. 7. SYSTEM INTEGRATION “The power relationships facilitate within the system and what the consequences are from resistance” (Dhillon, 2013) In short, system integration is the policing of the cyber community and all those who are apart of this community. System integration creates the rules and boundaries that are needed to insure all Americans are following the law when using a cyber entity.
