Prerequisite to Measure Information Security - A State of the Art Literature Review

Rainer Diesch, Matthias Pfaff, Helmut Krcmar

Abstract

The field of information security is growing in research and practice over the past years. Recent studies highlight a gap in measuring and monitoring information security. In this context various definitions and synonymous expressions exist to describe information security. The aim of the work is to compare and delimit the various terms in this field of research and give a thematic overview of current articles in place. In particular, five dimensions of information security are developed and outlined. Additionally, an overview of possible research directions in the field of measuring and monitoring information security is provided.
