Information är en drivande resurs för verksamhetersom en viktig biståndsdel i affärsprocesser och därför finns ett behov att skydda den.Informationssäkerhet är inte bara en teknisk fråga utan påverkas av organisationskultur,anställdas säkerhetsmedvetenhet samt ledning och individ. Studien användersig av en abduktiv forskningsansats med en kvalitativ datainsamling. I studien intervjuadesnio anställda från olika kommunala förvaltningar för att undersöka hurarbetet med informationssäkerhet bedrivs. I analysen undersöker vi hur den nuvarandesituationen ställer sig mot teorier om hur ett effektivt säkerhetsarbete skabedrivas. I diskussionen belyser vi vikten av ledningens delaktighet i verksamhetensinformationssäkerhet och hur det påverkar det systematiska säkerhetsarbetet.Vi diskuterar även hur individens roll påverkar säkerhetsarbetets effektivitet. Studienvisar hur informationssäkerheten i kommunala förvaltningar inte ligger i fas medbehovet och pekar på vikten av individen samt ledningens ansvar i säkerhetsarbetet.
