Abstract: The paper presents important factors that influence the development of information security as a service in four small-sized healthcare sectors. The analysis shows that information security services have two perspectives: an information security management system (ISMS) perspective and a business-oriented perspective. An organisation needs to determine its perspective before implementing security services. The analysis of the findings leads to the development of a conceptual model of information security as a service that combines these two perspectives. The study suggests that using security services from third parties such as consulting services, network services, helpdesk services and software development services must be highly controlled to archive confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA). Finally, a variety of services should be provided on an ease-of-use and pay-as-you-go basis to help improve processes and save costs.
