Abstract

The aim of this research is to investigate information systems security in the context of organizational issues. In doing so, we adopted a socio-organizational approach to the subject matter by investigating the interrelationship between the organization's ability to learn, exploiting and exploring knowledge, both as prior constructs of organization’s flexibility, with respect to information systems security. ISS is often considered in literature as the issue putting constraints on organisational structure. The scope of present paper is to empirically explore previous conceptual findings as the reverse relationship: the possible effect on the level of security driven by the organization’s flexibility. This research offers to the reader empirical evidences to demonstrate the importance of organization’s flexibility as the independent variable which impacts on information system security, regarded as the dependent variable
