Themes in information security research in the information systems discipline: A topic modeling approach


Information security continues to grow in importance in all aspects of society, and therefore evolves as a prevalent research area. The Information Systems (IS) discipline offers a unique perspective from which to move this stream of literature forward. Using a semi-automated thematic analysis approach based on the topic modeling technique, we review a broad range of information security literature to investigate how we might theorize about information security on a grander scale. Five themes resulted from our analysis: Software Security Decisions, Firm Security Strategy, Susceptibility, Information Security Policy Compliance, and Other Developing Themes. Implications of our findings and future research directions are discussed.
