Abstract
Cybersecurity governance is a critical issue for organizations engaging in a constant struggle for success in protecting their data, brand, customers, and other assets from malignant actors. The nature of what constitutes successful cybersecurity practices and governance, however, is not yet clear, in part because an appropriate measure for cybersecurity success is not likely to be singular or simple. In this qualitative study, we explore perspectives of cybersecurity success through interviews representing various technical and non-technical roles across a variety of organizations, then provide a preliminary framework for understanding dimensions of cybersecurity success (financial, information integrity, operational, and reputational) as well as their associated knowledge domains and alignments.
