Abstract

The incorporation of ICT in public sector organisations is progressing rapidly in Oman where the government sees this as a means to enhance the delivery of online services. In this context, preserving the security of information, and making Information Security a core organisational aspect in public sector organisations, requires attention from management. Our research is the first known attempt to gauge management attitudes toward Information Security in Oman. We also consider how such attitudes influence Information Security governance. In addressing these issues, we review current compliance with Information Security procedures in Omani public sector organisations, review management attitudes toward Information Security governance practices, and explore how management attitudes toward Information Security impact upon these aspects.
