Abstract

Security in organizations is no longer just a matter of having locks and alarms; it is more like a question of different dimensions of rules, perceptions and actions. The focus must return to more interpersonal relationships in security issues instead of technically advanced equipment. In facing today’s challenges, the focus must be on more interpersonal relationships in security issues than on technically advanced equipment. This also applies to institutions of higher learning. Sixteen security risk managers from Swedish universities and university colleges were interviewed about the dimensions of rules, perceptions and what is actually carried out. The results show that the size of the higher education institution has no significance for the success of good security work. To improve the security risk management process, a modeling started inspired on three levels of culture. Finally this model could support a systematic approach to the security risk management process in higher education.
