Categorization of conceptions about digital threats on web applications : With a study showing the economic consequences of cyber attacks (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete tar upp digitala hot mot webbapplikationer och kategoriserar allmänhetens uppfattning om dem. Digitala hot är oftast kopplade till ekonomiska konsekvenser varvid även dessa kommer att studeras. Målet med detta arbete är att bidra till en vetenskaplig artikel i framtiden, som kan vara värdefull för allmänheten, samt för framtida arbete och sysselsättning.

För att analysera samlade uppfattningar användes konstant jämförande metoden. Resultatet avslöjar flera spännande fynd för teori och praktik, där uppfattningar om cybervärlden presenteras för att kunna förstå mer hur andra ser på cybersäkerhet idag. Det visar även betydande variationer bland deltagarnas uppfattningar och att informationssäkerhet, även om den gradvis utvecklas, har en lång väg tills den blir en obruten del av affärsverksamheten och arbetskraftens verklighet. 

Denna studie kan även fungera som en guide för de olika uppfattningarna om cyberattacker eftersom den ger en översikt över de idag mest relevanta cyberattackerna. Arbetet kompletterades med en studie som belyser ekonomiska konsekvenser av cyberattacker. Utöver detta studerades även cyberattacken mot Coop under sommaren 2021.  

Abstract [en]

This thesis presents a categorization of conceptions about digital threats on web applications with a study showing the economic consequences of cyber-attacks. The aim of this thesis is to contribute to a scientific article, which can be valuable to the public, as well as for future work and employment.

Constant comparison method was used to analyse aggregate perceptions. The results reveal several exciting findings for theory and practice, where perceptions of the cyber world were presented in order to understand more how others see cybersecurity today. It also shows significant variations among the participants' perceptions. This shows that information security, even if it is gradually developed, has a long way to go until it becomes an unbroken part of the business. 

This study can also serve as a guide for the different perceptions of cyber-attacks as it provides an overview of the most relevant cyber-attacks today. This thesis was supplemented with a study that highlights the economic consequences of cyberattacks. In addition to this, the cyber-attack on Coop during the summer of 2021 was also studied.
