Information security is a management problem, not a
technology one. Experience indicates that technology
cannot provide all the answers to the problems posed
by people in the context of information security
management (ISM). Although many different frameworks
and guidelines have been proposed by researchers,
practitioners, consultants, government and
organizations, current information security
objectives and practices are inconsistent or
misleading to practitioners. Concepts in the field
of ISM are largely based on case studies, anecdotal
evidence and the prescription of
industry “leaders”. There is little consensus on
which security objectives should be achieved, which
factors are critical to achieve successful security
initiatives, and what is the relationship between
best practices and objectives.
To help practitioners effectively achieve their
information security goals, this study aims to
answer these questions.
