This book determines the degree of recognition and application of security risk management to corporate governance practices. Formal research was contrasted to a Corporate Governance Security Model formulated to determine if the model is applicable to the recognition, or application, of a security function to the Australian Stock Exchange Corporate Governance principles. A major finding is that security functions and responsibilities are poorly recognised and documented by Australia''s largest public company boards. A majority of directors will have no experience or qualifications in security risk management and this is likely to be reflected down through the organisation, resulting in low to medium security awareness and culture. With limited application of security in the corporate governance framework, there is less focus on security related behaviour within the codes of conduct held by a majority of public companies. This can have an adverse impact on corporate ethics, internal controls and crisis response capabilities.
