Abstract [en]

Municipalities manage a significant part of society's services, and hence they also handle a vast amount of information. A municipality's activities include managing a significant part of society's services, and municipalities’ supply and management of information are, therefore, critical for society in general, and also for achieving the municipalities’ own operational goals. However, research shows weaknesses in the municipalities' work on information security, and there is a need to study and identify the current level of security.

This paper presents the result from a GAP analysis mapping the current situation of Swedish municipalities' for systematic information security work, based on the demands made on municipalities from both research and social perspectives. The result shows that the information security level regarding the systematic security work is generally low, and that there is a need to implement adapted tools for Information Security Management Systems in order to support municipalities.
