Compliance with information security policies: An empirical investigation

Information security was the main topic in this paper. An investigation of the compliance to information security policies were discussed. The author mentions that the insignificant relationship between rewards and actual compliance with information security policies does not make sense. Quite possibly this relationship results from not applying rewards for security compliance. Also mentions that based on the survey conducted, careless employee behavior places an organization’s assets and reputation in serious jeopardy. The major threat to information security arises from careless employees who fail to comply with organizations’ information security policies and procedures.
