The paper will evaluate the status of the integration of information security in the organizations and the reasons for minimal adaptation of the respective system in the region. The paper will also include some productive techniques that can improve the position of information security management systems in Saudi business organizations. 1. Problem Statement The advent of computers has caused revolutionary changes in the way businesses are run. Information management systems have given a structured format to the business processes and operations. The intellectual assets of the company get organized into standard formats due to the integration of information technology. However, along with these benefits of IT incorporation, there exist concerns regarding the security and privacy of the intellectual assets that are maintained by the IT infrastructure. Confidentiality of the data is feared as the exposure of company’s data (to malicious intent users) can cause serious harm to the organization’s position in the market. Integrity of the data is valuable to the organization so that it is not modified by any source and thus, does not mislead the organization into making wrong decisions. Availability of the data is important to make it useful in the hour of need by the concerned authorities for effective decision making.
