Improving the Information Security Model by using TFI [chapter]

Rose-Mharie Åhlfeldt, Paolo Spagnoletti, Guttorm Sindre
2007 IFIP International Federation for Information Processing  
The European Network of Excellence INTEROP classifies information security as a nonfunctional aspect of interoperability and as such it is an integral part of the design process for interoperable systems  ...  Furthermore we suggest extending this model using concepts based on semiotic theory and adopting the view of an information system as constituted of the technical, formal and informal (TFI) parts.  ...  In the informal part there is also a need for measures to support the organisation in implementing information security awareness.  ...
