Despite the importance of security design there is an absence of a guiding comprehensive theory for managerial action. The dynamic changes occurring in technology and security trigger changes in the social dynamics of the work place. The organizational and managerial challenge seems to center on new organizational capabilities. Current research suggests that organizations that have been addressing these challenges successfully design and put into effect a variety of learning mechanisms. This paper, based on empirical study of a software development firm, proposes a security design-based framework of business performance. The framework combines perspectives and theory from organization strategy, organization design, information technology, security design, culture and learning literature.
