This article intends to contribute to a better understanding of the reasons why some organizations have almost completely ignored the need to adopt new technologies or they are being too slow to decide and start the respective adoption processes.
The aim of these considerations is to propose an adequate and critical perspective of management mentality and attitudes, which hinder organizations to achieve excellence, to enhance productivity, and to strength competitiveness. Findings – Many medium sized enterprises seem to be reluctant to adoption due to some factors, namely, owners’ mentality, lack of technical qualification, resistance to change, and fear of being possible to face new technologies as a source of organizations’ insecurity.
To protect organizations, a good level of knowledge on risk controls, incident response, and disaster recovery should support the implementation of a security policy and its consequent program.
The need to redraw management mentality and attitude regarding security to build an adequate business continuity plan is recognized.
