The challenges of implementing standards based information security within family influenced firms: A proposed research agenda

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Information security is a complex topic that spans technology, systems, management and culture. This research in progress article proposes a relationship between the family ownership influence of businesses and their success in implementing standardized information security management systems (ISMS). It further proposes a mixed method research study to further understand the nature and needs of family influenced businesses by qualitatively exploring the challenges that family influenced businesses face in implementing information security and quantitatively comparing the ISMS implementation and assimilation success of family influenced businesses to businesses that are not family influenced.
