Organizational knowledge is considered a valuable resource for providing competitive advantage. Extensive research has been done on strategies to encourage knowledge creation and sharing. However, limited research has been done on strategies for protecting this valuable resource from the risk of leakage. This research aims to contribute in bridging this gap by two contributions: developing a model that describes knowledge leakage, and providing a framework of strategies for protecting competitive organisational knowledge. The research is grounded on two bodies of literature: Knowledge management and information security. The research aims for identifying security strategies in literature and adapting them to address knowledge protection needs.
