Leveraging situational judgment tests to measure behavioral information security

Samantha Phillips | Sal Aurigemma | Bradley Brummel | Tyler Moore

Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) are a multidimensional measurement method commonly used in the context of employment decisions and widely researched in the field of industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology. However, the use of SJTs in the field of information system (IS) security is limited. Applying SJT research from the field of I-O psychology to IS security research, particularly research with behavioral components, could prove beneficial. SJT items typically present participants with realistic hypothetical work/job-related situations and potential response items. The use of SJTs in IS security research could provide researchers with a new measurement tool for a wide range of research goals.
