The findings of three case studies resulting from the application of the Australian Small to Medium Enterprise E-business Security Methodology (ASME-EBSM) to each of the SME sectors comprising micro, small and medium businesses are examined. First a comparison of the findings relating to the SME sectors is discussed. The similarities and differences including the challenges experienced by the three sectors concerning the application of e-business security management within their respective e-business operational environments are presented. Second the process of applying the ASME-EBSM is reviewed with reflections upon the development and constituents of the methodology. The paper describes how a number of case studies were undertaken to validate the ASME-EBSM approach.
