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.
