Abstract [sv]

Att bedriva startups i ett informationsbaserat samhälle medför idag flera utmaningar. För att nå framgång måste företagets resurser användas på rätt sätt. I en tid där informationssäkerhet spelar en allt större roll ska det här till en avvägning mellan att uppnå en bra säkerhetsnivå, samtidigt som de affärsmässiga aspekterna måste prioriteras. I arbetet undersöks hur svenska startups hanterar sin informationssäkerhet. Arbetet syftar även till att undersöka hur utbredd medvetenheten är inom sex svenska startups gällande informationssäkerhet samt hur mycket det prioriteras. Arbetet resultat visar att medvetenheten kring informationssäkerheten är hög men att det fortfarande är brister när det gäller att omsätta denna medvetenhet till praktisk handling och att det är de affärsorienterade målen som prioriteras högst inom en svensk startup. 

Abstract [en]

To run a startup in an information based society can cause a lot of challenges. To reach success, the company’s resources must be used in a proper way. In a time where information security has a big role, there must be a balance between keeping a high level of security meanwhile the business orientated expectations must be prioritized. This thesis will examine how a startup manages its information security. It does also focus on the awareness of information security within six swedish startups considering information security and also it’s priority. The results of the study shows that awareness of information security is high, but there are still shortcomings in putting this awareness into practice. The study also shows that the business-orientated goals are the highest priority within a swedish startup.
