Information systems (IS) security within organizations is more and more focused around risk management approaches. Central to these approaches is the need for a better understanding of the required alignment between the business view of the organization and the architecture of its underlying IS. Through the use of requirements engineering techniques, the(More)
Information Systems (IS), particularly e-business systems, are required to be more secure in order to resist to the increasing number of attacks. Security is no longer just a desirable quality of IT systems, but is required for compliance to international regulations. The Requirements Engineering (RE) community has started to make successful contributions(More)
Our world is increasingly relying on complex software and systems. In a growing number of fields such as transportation, finance, telecommunications, medical devices , they come to play a critical role and require high assurance. To achieve this, it is imperative to produce high quality requirements. The KAOS goal-oriented requirements engineering(More)
Every year, governments introduce new or revised regulations that are imposing new types of requirements on software development. Analyzing and modeling these legal requirements is time consuming, challenging and cumbersome for software and requirements engineers. Having regulation models can help understand regulations and converge toward better compliance(More)
Developing high quality requirements specifications is mandatory for a number of critical industrial systems. The KAOS goal-driven methodology has been designed to elicit and validate requirements and also to prove their consistency. This methodology has been successfully implemented in two integrated tools (Objectiver and FAUST) and has been validated in(More)
It is advocated to use the ISO/IEC 15504 standard into new domains not related to Information Technology (IT), giving a powerful enterprise-wide assessment tool for quality managers. Outside quality management, ISO/IEC 15504 assessments are becoming used for assessing conformance to regulations. Two examples of this occur with the process models " SPICE for(More)
