Strategic Management of Information Security in State-run Organizations



Global processes of exchange information and communication between organizations are leading to significant weak points and increasing incidences concerning information security. This leads to the question, which aspects the strategic management of information security of staterun organizations should consider to make information fully accessible but secure at the same time. The strategic management of information security should lead into an integral and convergent security process, which would take into consideration the specific demands and conditions of state-run organizations. Within the framework of the security process, structural components, security aims and the demands of a state-run organization are analyzed, evaluated and modified to meet specific conditions. The aim of the strategic security process is the system-immanent and integral strategy preparation and implementation of an information security for a state-run organization.
