    Abstract

    In this paper we introduce a methodology for analyzing differences regarding security perceptions within and between stakeholders, and the elements which affect these perceptions. We have designed the €܈ouse of Security€ݬ a security assessment model that provides the basic framework for considering eight different constructs of security: Vulnerability, Accessibility, Confidentiality, Technology Resources for Security, Financial Resources for Security, Business Strategy for Security, Security Policy and Procedures, and Security Culture. We designed and performed a survey of about 1500 professionals in various industries, levels, and functions resulting in a gap analysis to uncover differences (1) between the different constructs and aspects of security, (2) between different enterprise stakeholder roles, and (3) between different organizations. This paper briefly describes the development of the security constructs and some of the preliminary findings.
