This paper contemporizes evolving information security (IS) governance practices during the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) in South Africa. Using post-structuralism as a lens, we offer distinct insights regarding how information systems and technologies are evolving and the impact they present to the governance of IS systems during intermittent lockdowns. An online self-administered questionnaire was designed and distributed using Google forms to elicit data around evolution. A link was emailed to 160 respondents fitting pre-defined criteria. Data was exported to a statistical analysis software for analysis. Our results present an important relationship between technology evolutions and IS threats and that changes in technology as well as IS threats lead to changes in work routines and notably, IS governance. The model presented by this study helps IS practitioners understand how these important changes can be managed during these uncertain times.
