Organisational Constraints on Information Systems Security

Maurizio Cavallari

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The present paper addresses an issue about the relationship between organisational structure and information systems security. Systems security is generally perceived as, and actually often constitutes, restrictions and anti-ergonomics . The general research question we address in this research is the other way round: What are the constraints of existing organisational structure and organisational processes that limit information systems security? The general R.Q. is subdivided into three sub-questions regarding: 1) the relationship between ISS and organisational structure; 2) the conditions for effective implementation of ISS; 3) how the ISS implementation is hindered. The novelty of this research lies in answering all the mentioned sub-questions simultaneously. Conceptual analysis is utilised to interpret results, while socio-technical approach and the recent integrated social-technical theory are used as the main theoretical background. Research findings include organisational impacts on ISS and taxonomies of conditions and constraints that the organisation puts on Information Systems Security.
