ICT has become an increasingly important factor in facilitation of improved services within the public sector. Employment of e-government systems means more effectiveness, efficiency, accessibility and accountability of the government to their citizens in addition to posing security threat to the disseminated information. Information security is thus a key concern in the establishment to ensure success of egovernment systems. However this area in egovernment in the Kenyan Public Sector has not been adequately addressed. In this study the researcher presents a case study of egovernment interaction within four of the nine Agencies in the Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender and the Information Security Management challenges identified in the implementation. This study was guided by the following objectives; to establish the current status of information security management for e-government in the Kenyan Public Sector, to establish factors that hindered effective information security management in the Public Sector, to develop an improved framework that would address the challenges identified in the implementation, to establish if the developed framework would be applicable in the Kenyan Public Sector. To realize these objectives the study sampled ISOs within the Agencies by use of purposive sampling which is a non-probability sampling technique used in quantitative research. This was done through data collection by use of questionnaires and in-depth interviews. The data was analyzed using the statistical package for social scientists (SPSS) to obtain descriptive statistics in form of frequencies, means and graphs for quantitative results. The findings enhanced the development of a workable framework.
