Ethical issues are key factors with respect to compliance intention with information security policies (ISPs). As such, understanding employees’ compliance behavior with ISPs from ethical lenses is an important first step to leverage knowledge worker assets in efforts targeted toward reducing information security risks. This study proposes an integrated model that combines the Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA) and ethics theories; deontology and teleology, to examine users’ behavioral intention to comply with ISPs. This is a research in progress, and an instrument is under development to conduct a survey study to gather data from employees in the banking sector in Jordan.
