In today’s business environment it is difficult to obtain senior management approval for the expenditure of valuable resources to “guarantee “that a potentially disastrous event will not occur that could affect the organisation performance. Analysing potential risk and the allocation of resources for computer network security and business continuity require strategic, long-term planning. Most companies tend to be reactive and respond with quick infrastructure solutions. A strategic approach to computer network security leads to a more efficient plan and a less expensive risk-management strategy. Financial modelling is a fundamental component of all business investment cases. IT security investment proposals have unique qualities that can pose expenditure justification challenges. This paper aims to explore various financial models and to develop one that IT managers can effectively use to support their business cases.
