Abstract: This study examined the relationship between Information Security Awareness (ISA), resilience and work stress. Data was collected using an online questionnaire design, completed by 1,048 working Australians. The online survey included the Human Aspects of Information Security Questionnaire (HAIS-Q) (Parsons et al. 2017), which is a measure of ISA, the Brief Resilience Scale (Smith et al. 2008) and the Job Stress Scale (Lambert et al. 2006). It was found that participants with greater resilience also had higher ISA and experienced lower levels of work stress. Results of the study can be applied by organisations to develop training programs that promote a resilient workforce, thereby improving ISA and reducing workplace stress.
