Rosemary M. Shafack | Awiye Sharon Serkwem "Ensuring Effective Information Security Management: Information Classification and Access Control Practices" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-1, December 2020, pp.894-901, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd38122.pdf

This study is based on information security management in financial institutions from the perspective of information classification and access control. As objectives, the study set out to assess information classification practices in microfinance institutions and their effect on overall information security management, and to examine access control in microfinance institutions and how it impacts information security management. The study made use of the Information Security Theory by Horne, Ahmad and Maynard, and a sequential exploratory mixed method survey research design. As data collection instruments, a questionnaire and an interview guide were used, with validity and reliability guaranteed by subject experts, ISO/IEC checklists, and Kuder Richardson formula 20 which realised a score of 0.81. Of the 30 managers and information security officers who participated in the study, a response rate of 100% was registered. To analyse data, descriptive statistics and thematic analysis were used. The findings portray loopholes in information classification and access control and thus in the information security management programme of participating institutions. Some recommendations put forth are; the need to adopt information classification schedules with distinguished levels of sensitivity, drafting of access control policies, signing of non-disclosure agreements and introduction of information security officers to ensure implementation and follow-up.
