Abstract: Technological innovations have a momentous impact on society. Research has explored the role of culture and decision-making on IT development and diffusion. However, to-date, few studies have examined the role of ICT impacts and culture on IT decision-making in developing countries. In this conceptual paper, we integrate Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions and the Decision Style Inventory into ICT for Development security impact assessment frameworks. In particular, we use the proposed solution artifacts to assess the confidentiality, integrity and accessibility (CIA) security risks for a developing country. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
