dc.description.abstractOrganizations are investing heavily in security systems to secure their premises and assets . In an effort to enhance security, organizations have turned to the adoption of Intrusion Detection Systems. lDSs have improved in efficiency and effectiveness in the way they detect and respond to intrusions. They are moving from manual detection of intrusions to automated detection of intrusions. Most of the existing IDSs are stand-alone hence making it difficult to associate intrusions. They also cannot offer a complete organization security hence needs to be integrated with other system security components. Exploratory research design was adopted in coming up with the solution due to the nature of the study. Data was collected through questionnaires, journals, theses and observation of existing security systems. The collected data was organized and analyzed using SPSS tool. The finding and analysis of the data were presented in descriptive statistics where tables, percentage and charts were used. The model developed was informed by the research findings that showed most organizations secure their premises and assets but lack a standardized model to integrate different security system components. An Integrated Intrusion Detection Security System Model provides a standard for developing systems to integrate different security system components in an organization. The integration of heterogeneous IDSs and different security system components improves the security performance as this associates different security system components to share intrusion information.en_US
