ABSTRACT
The purpose of this exploratory descriptive research is to examine the paucity of Information Assurance (IA) policy and practices in commercial industry and the resulting serious threat to commercial IT databases and networked infrastructures. The conceptual framework for this study is grounded in the work of Kurt Lewin and his organizational change process. IA processes and standards are compared between commercial and government infrastructures to identify gaps in the field of IA knowledge and application. A prior IA survey tool developed by Suchan has been modified to identify commercial IA policies and applications currently employed. Frequency analyses of this data will describe identified gaps within the commercial IA industry. This study supports positive social change improving IA awareness across commercial industry thus promoting additional national security.
