Abstract: The entire business landscape finds itself on the verge of a recession because of ongoing global economic turmoil. Thus, there is a heightened need to minimise and mitigate business risk and scrutinise information spending while ensuring compliance with regulatory mandates. This calls for decision makers to become vigilant in their spending and move towards an optimised information security investment. The main aim of this paper is to provide decision makers with a set of requirements to be considered when implementing a cost-effective and optimal information security budget; in a manner that preserve organisations’ information security posture and compliance status. Research reported on in this paper forms part of an ongoing project known as the BC3I (Broad Control Category Cost Indicators) framework.
