3 Citazioni (Scopus)


The motivation of the current paper is the search for responses about decision making in both context, computer and non-computer scenarios, thus whether no difference shall be found, the large behavioural literature on non-computer decision making can be used to interpret security issues. The effort is then devoted to identify a set of organisational literature contribution to emerging forms of organisations and behaviours with respect to the human factor and security problems. While many authors propose a top-down view of organisational/policy-directed security the proposition of this paper is a bottom-up analysis, addressed to the end-user as a member of the organisation and moreover of its culture. As the results of the work, a threefold set of theoretical frameworks has been identified, leading to a robust conceptual base: the “Contingency Model of Strategic Risk Taking” of Baird; the “Strategic modeling technique for information security risk assessment” of Misra, and a major contribution of Ciborra’s work.
