INVESTIGATION OF RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF INFORMATION SECURITY IN TURKEY

C. Altunsaban, M. Inceoglu

Ege University (TURKEY)
Information security is defined as the prevention of unauthorized access, use, alteration, disclosure, removal, manipulation, and damage to information. The concept of information security comes from three basic elements called privacy, integrity, and accessibility. The main objective of information security is to ensure access to information ensuring that the right person is as accurate as possible. In recent years, rapid developments in information technology have made it easier to meet the need for direct, secure and rapid access and have demonstrated the importance of human life. The purpose of this research is to investigate the research done in the field of information security in Turkey with the meta-analysis method. Within the scope of this research, the scientific studies on information security in the field of education have been explored and the articles and dissertations published from 2012 onwards have been determined by screening the literature. The identified documents consist of 28 dissertations and 24 articles. The general trends of these researches have been examined by evaluating the topics, methods, and results of the researches carried out in these documents. Because of the examinations, it has been observed that the research topics are generally shaped by "information security awareness/perception" and "attitudes and behaviors on information security". The universe and the samples determined in these researches were mainly concentrated on the students. The school administrators and the parents were mostly not included in the universe and the samples. 3 dissertations and 1 article included the parents, 1 article included school administrators and 1 dissertation included both parents and school administrators in their universe and samples. Qualitative methods or mixed patterns were preferred in 9 dissertations and 3 articles, whereas quantitative methods were preferred in other researches. While the results of the studies vary, the findings point out that awareness of students on information security needs to be increased and there are shortcomings/deficiencies about the strategies to be implemented when a negative situation regarding information security occurs. In the direction of these results, in order to reach a wide range of findings, it is suggested that the studies be conducted in the field of information security needs to be supported by qualitative methods as well as quantitative methods that generate numerical data. It is also suggested for future studies to perform evaluations in different dimensions with samples to be selected from students, teachers, parents and school administrations.
