There is a need to understand the cultural issues affecting security in large, distributed and heterogeneous systems; such systems are typified by e-Science projects. The authors present a model of security culture for e-Science, grounded both in the security literature and in empirical data from an e-Science project. From this model, they present five concepts, which have differing effects on security culture. Each concept is discussed in terms of how the literature treats it, and how it impacts security culture in practice. This discussion highlights differences and similarities between the two domains.
