Information security has received a great deal of attention from a number of researchers (Dhillon and Backhouse, 2001). However, there has been little research aimed at understanding the dimensions—within the organizational context—of information security success. The current study considers a large body of information security literature and organizes the research based on their findings. This taxonomy is used to develop a model for information security success. The utility of the proposed model within e-Government is considered. Finally the implications for research and industry are discussed.
