Abstract

The focus for any organization should be in securing the critical components that are important to business survival This can be accomplished by adopting technical and non technical approaches. The non technical approaches however tend to be more problematic and include changing the way employees perceive enterprise security. People issues have always posed problems when implementing new systems, and an enterprise security strategy is no exception. The identification and adoption of critical success factors to support a sound security strategy could provide a successful security outcome. In this paper a security framework is developed from the literature and each part of the framework provides the opportunity to identi' critical success factors. It is contended that by using this framework organizations are able to build a strong security base for their enterprise.
