Abstract [en]

The increased amount of attacks targeting humans accessing and using computers has made it significantly important to understand human and organizational behavior in attacks and how resilient behavior can be achieved. This paper presents a research model that attempts to understand how organizational and human factors complement each other in shaping information security behavior. The model was developed through an inductive approach, in which content domain experts were interviewed to gain a deeper understanding of the phenomena. Common patterns that were identified in the interviews were then combined with data collected through surveying the literature. Specifically, the research model includes constructs related to the organization and promotion of information security, constructs related to perceptions of information security awareness and the social conditions within an organizational setting, and individual constructs related to an individual’s perceptions of attitude, normative beliefs, and self-efficacy. Implications for continuing research and how the model will be tested empirically are discussed.
