ABSTRACT

Organizations are expected to manage the overall information security posture
through various information security evaluation methodologies. Current information
security evaluation methodologies have limitations which are discussed. This paper
utilizes benchmark variables to examine a stages-of-growth perspective of the
information security function. Findings show correlation between six of the eight
benchmark variables. The findings also show a positive relationship between the
number of information security policies and more advanced stages of information
security posture. The results shed light on the current state of information security in
organizations.
