The paper discusses a model of security profiles for employees within industrial or commercial organisations. The information objects there are often connected to each other in a network structure. As a result security clearances based individual positions within the organization hierarchy may not be adequate. A method is presented for calculating security values of objects (security categories) and security clearances for employees in relation to the value of information accessible for each employee.
