Title: The 14 layered framework for including social and organisational aspects in security management
Author(s): Yngve Monfelt, Sofie Pilemalm, Jonas Hallberg, Louise Yngström
Reference: pp90-99
Keywords: Information security management, communication, control
Abstract: The efforts of the COINS - COntrolled INformation Security - project are to design a communication framework/model about information security in an organization which, at the same time can work as a base for finding assessment measures of an ISMS. The communication framework/model is based on well established knowledge within information security: frameworks, models, standards, and terminology. The scientific base is cybernetics, including variety engineering and recursion to provide adaptation and learning. The motivation for the research is that communication of information security issues within organizations tend to be insufficient and the mental connections between IT-security and information security work are weak, which prohibits the organization from learning and adapting in its security work. This is a report on research in progress.
