Abstract

A lot of effort is being put in securing information. For these to be more effective an all-inclusive, multi-faceted comprehensive picture is required. This can be facilitated by common language and understanding. Information security ontology and native theory can help in resolving this issue. However, current methodologies of ontology development have limitations regarding objectivity, legitimacy, and lack of theory development procedures. To overcome these limitations a novel semi-automatic ontology development, validation, and theorization technique - FocalPoint has been proposed in this paper. It is an extended blend of Grounded Theory and Design Science Research methodologies along with social collaboration that lend promise to objectivity and legitimacy to the resulting ontology and theory. It will be of interest and provide help to researchers and practitioners developing ontologies and theories.
