In this paper, the authors adopt an organizational perspective to the management of information security and analyze in a multi-period context how an organization should allocate its internal cash flows and available external funds to revenue-generating (productive) and security assuring (protective) processes in the presence of security breach, borrowing and financial distress costs. They show analytically and illustrate numerically that the capital stock accumulation is lower and allocations to security are higher in the initial periods when security breach costs are higher.
