Abstract

Information systems manage and hold a huge amount of important and critical information. For this reason, information systems must be trustworthy and should comply with relevant laws and regulations. Legal issues should be incorporated into the system development process and there should be a systematic and structured assessment of a system’s trustworthiness to fulfil relevant legal obligations. This paper presents a novel meta-model, which combines legal and trust related concepts, to enable information systems developers to model and reason about the trustworthiness of a system in terms of its law compliance. A case study is used to demonstrate the applicability and benefits of the proposed meta-model.
