The rise in the use of the Internet and networks for doing online business has altered the ways Information Systems (IS) security is approached and the adoption of enterprise security models. The debate of Information Technology (IT) and business objectives has far-reaching consequences for the design of software and the management of the Business – IT interface. This paper is specifically concerned with conditioning the problem area of information security. The upsurge and continued use of the Internet as a general medium for doing business generates some security problems that have inadequate treatment (and hence conditioning for solutions) within the different worlds of IT and Business. The challenge is being met by the reworking of traditional network security approaches, and the development of new hybrid models.
