Information security and risk management is becoming increasingly important as networked organizational systems become increasingly prone to risks of malicious attacks, virus intrusions and disasters. A survey was administered by students in a Management of Information systems undergraduate class to investigate the status of information security and risk management in 3 institutions within the local CBD in Samoa and more specifically what strategies are employed to manage risks in these institutions. In addition, findings from the survey were used to provide local case studies and examples in the course notes to demonstrate concepts of information security and risk management for this Management of Information systems class at the National University of Samoa.
