Faily, Shamal

Authors



Abstract

Designing security for grassroot movements raises several challenges not particular to the organisations that are catered to by conventional approaches to security design. Drawing on analogies between Social Entrepreneurship and Grassroot Activism, adopting an entrepreneurial approach to security design may lead to security design decisions which are both in-tune with a grassroot movement's aims and cost effective. This position paper considers the applicability of Security Entrepreneurship for security design in grassroot movements. Using a SWOT analysis, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses or this approach, before considering external threats and opportunities arising its prolonged adoption.
