The purpose of this paper is to high-light problems regarding user actability and security implementations – what are the important mechanisms that affect actability in usage situations? Alignment between actability and strategic IS-planning and security issues is of the essence. However, serious gaps in alignment have been identified concerning strategic IS-planning as well as in development or implementation of security controls, and selection and use of security standards. The analysis of the alignment gaps show that there is a need to bring in the users view on business requirements in IS, or rather what they need to be allowed to do - to be able to work efficiently.
