Value Conflicts and Information Security Management

Value Conflicts and Information Security Management

This ebook on a crucial but under-developed area in information security management research, namely the complexity of information security when different practices, requirements, and management systems meet and create tensions. In particular, this means highlighting value pluralism, value conflicts and dilemmas anchored in these practices, requirements and management systems. Such value conflicts could appear within or between organisations, as well as between different societal interests. Value conflicts involving information security, and the way these are dealt with, may influence information security per se, but also organisational performance, working conditions, and quality of life.

The papers collectively illustrate a range of different topics about value conflicts and information security management. They capture some of the breadth and complexity of this topic and at the same time contribute to the (incomplete) jigsaw puzzle of understanding value conflicts.
