This article focuses on the social aspect of the management approach as part of a larger study that uses a socio-technical theory as a basis for analysing the relationship between the social and technical factors in the information security management system of Malaysian Public Service organisations. The empirical analysis was conducted to identify the antecedents of the information security maturity of an organisation, mainly through the study of several social factors.
