Title: Employee Information Security Beliefs in the Home Environment
Author(s): Joseph Omidosu, Jacques Ophoff
Keywords: Information Security Beliefs, Home Environment, Theory of Planned Behaviour
Abstract: As information and communication technology adoption increases it changes the way organizations, government agencies, and individuals view security. Modern technologies have expanded security vulnerability beyond the organizational environment, as employees’ access to information is no longer physically constrained and often occurs in the home environment. This study investigates the beliefs influencing employee information security behaviour in the home environment. A qualitative research approach was adopted, with the theory of planned behaviour used as research lens. Thematic analysis of interview data from 19 participants is reported. The research findings present a range of behavioural, normative, and control beliefs influencing employee information security behaviour in the home environment. The research contributes to the behavioural information security domain by expanding the understanding of beliefs influencing employee security behaviour. Using this knowledge management and security experts can develop more effective human-centred interventions to motivate employee adoption of security measures.
