Title: Institutionalising Information Security Culture in Australian SMEs: Framework and Key Issues
Author(s): Sneza Dojkovski, Sharman Lichtenstein, Matthew Warren
Keywords: Information security culture, small and medium-size enterprises
Abstract: Many companies would prefer employees to follow information security practices naturally rather than by management directives and enforcement. The paper reports some of the main findings from a large interpretive research project involving a literature review, three case studies and two focus groups, conducted in Australia. Findings include a framework for fostering information security culture in Australian SMEs and a discussion of key issues. The paper highlights the criticality of both the SME owner role and the national context in fostering information security culture in SMEs. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
