Leadership Responsibilities in Information Security Awareness Development

doi: 10.32565/aarms.2020.2.6


This paper aims to introduce the main aspects arising in the organisational context related to leadership roles when information security awareness is being engineered and developed according to purposes set within. Achieving these development purposes is  connected to the commanding function of leadership, while being influenced by key human risk factors such as: leadership  commitment and example setting, leadership quality, the state of being motivated and above all, the ability of responsible decision- making on a professional basis. In order to improve the effectiveness of putting the implementation into practice, a methodological  toolset needs to be elaborated for the disposal of the leader, thanks to which, besides taking on a transactional leadership style and a  cyclic program management, the continuous monitoring and tailoring to the organisation of the development purposes all become  facilitated.
