Designing security for grassroot movements raises several challenges not particular to the organisations that conven- tional approaches to security design cater for. Drawing on analogies between Social Entrepreneurship and Grassroot Activism, adopting an entrepreneurial approach to security design may lead to security design decisions which are both in-tune with a grassroot movement’s aims and cost effec- tive. This position paper considers the applicability of Secu- rity Entrepreneurship for security design in grassroot move- ments. Using a SWOT analysis, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses or this approach, before considering exter- nal threats and opportunities arising its prolonged adoption.
