Abstract: Organizational security governance (OSG) objectives provide a strategic direction to the organization’s comprehensive security planning. It is essential that security planning has overarching objectives such that the proposed controls and measures are contextually grounded. Mishra (2015) proposed six fundamental and seventeen means objectives, theoretically and empirically developed, to provide a strategic basis of an organization’s security program. The purpose of this study is to examine the proposed six fundamental OSG objectives in an organizational context and assess how it guides the security efforts. A case study was performed to understand the use of the six fundamental objectives in the overall security program. The results suggest that the OSG objectives indeed provide a strategic basis for developing security measures of the organization. Implications are drawn and contributions listed.
