2011 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Analys av framkomlig forskningsinriktning inom säkerhetsmetriker baserad på state-of-the-art inom området.
This paper is largely based on a state of the art report covering the information security (IS) metrics area produced as part of the Controlled Information Security (COINS) research project funded by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) and the comprehensive literature review conducted while compiling the report. The report's findings are summarized and some of the key issues discovered in the course of the literature review are reflected upon. Additionally, the paper describes a conceptual systemic scheme/model for the research process, while explaining its relevance to the subject area, that may help with resolution of the outlined issues in future research in the area. The paper is written principally with a management/governance (rather than engineering) perspective in mind.
