报告内容摘要

Current information systems security (ISS) research has put a premium on proposing new theory contributions. This research follows the following formula: Suggest a new theory (or set of constructs) in ISS and show that it is empirically supported, then suggest another new theory (or set of constructs) and show that it is empirically supported, and so on. Despite the merits of this approach, it leaves out important scientific aspects. For example, after more than 30 years of ISS research, (1) little is known about which conditions and situations that new theories (or constructs) do not apply to; (2) we do not know which of these new theories are more effective than others in solving an ISS problem; and (3) we have not demonstrated that our best research, or new theoretical contributions, can beat industry best practices or practitioners’ intuitive approaches.

  

We suggest that ISS research be examined in terms of long-term research programs, which have four levels: meta-level research, basic research, applied research, and post-intervention research. The ultimate success of such programs does not entail new theories, “contextualized theories,” or adding IT artifacts to theories. Rather, the ultimate success of such programs hinges on the question of which program can demonstrate the best track record on intervention effect rate for a given ISS problem.

  

The lack of demonstrated intervention effectiveness (e.g., by showing treatment effect rates) is one important inhibitor that prevents ISS research from achieving relevance in practice.  Without reporting such evidence, ISS research cannot overpower the folklore, fads, or industry “best practices” that often guide operations.  With such treatment-effect rates, evidence-based practice becomes more justifiable. We believe that our ideas also can be applied to ISS research in general.
