Primary care medical practices in Australia have been identified as a profession in need of assistance with information security practices. Whilst guidelines exist, there is little assistance in an accessible and easily implemented form for medical practices. This research presents the preliminary findings of a study which advocates that information security practices can be improved using a capability operational framework which is contextualised to its target environment.
