This paper develops an interdisciplinary model of data security and privacy effectiveness that blends the information hierarchy model with the principles of the Toyota production system. An application of the blended model is applied in the healthcare setting to evaluate its external validity. The usability and external validity of the model provide a preliminary set of best practices to improve organizational leverage of strategic planning and implementation of security and privacy safeguards. Its contributions include model development with real-world application and interdisciplinary bases.
