Abstract [en]

A student at the Technical University in Jönköping was given an assignment from Falköping municipality. The assignment was to evaluate their IT systems 'users' awareness of information security and even present suggestions for IT-Users to improve their information security within Falköping municipality.

Falköping municipality consists today of seven administrations. The target groups for the study of the information security are a pilot group consisting of 30 IT Users and four different managers from various administrations within Falköping Municipality.

The purpose of this work is mainly to indicate an understanding of the importance of the information security knowledge among IT Users in Falkopings municipality, mainly those who use their smartphones and tablets for work-related activities.

This work aims to answer the following questions:

• How wide is the awareness of information security among municipality's IT users?

• How can information security improve among the municipality's IT users?

Theories that work consists of are mainly what information security is, how it is handled and the threats and risks that may create problems for the municipality, basically when IT Users use their smart phones and tablets.

The Work Implementation started with sending surveys to a pilot group of IT- system users and the student even interviewed four general managers working in Falköpings municipality. Both the questionnaires results and interviews results are presented in diagram and text.

The result from both surveys and interviews was very positive and it shows that the municipality investigated IT-Users are very aware and have knowledge about information security, when they use their smart phones and tablets. There are some suggestions presented for the IT-Users to improve their security in their smart phones and tablets.

At the end of the report a discussion as well as a conclusion is presented. In conclusion there are some points, which explain how risk awareness among municipality’s investigated IT Users appears in the current situation and also there are some suggestions presented for the IT-Users to improve their security in their smart phones and tablets in the future. Falköping municipality should in the future make a larger study to produce a risk assessment. The risk assessment should discuss various threats and risks that IT-systems users experience with their use of smartphones and tablets in their workplace. The student hopes that this thesis will be a good basis for future studies.
