In this paper, we develop a theoretical model for the adoption process of Information System Security innovations in organisations. The model stemmed from the Diffusion of Innovation theory (DOI), the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) and the Technology-Organisation-Environment (TOE) framework. The model portrays Information System Security adoption process as navigating through a sequence of stages, progressing from pre-adoption, adoption-decision to post-adoption phases. In addition, Information System Security adoption process was assessed as two level decision practices. The study considers the adoption process from the initiation stage until the acquisition of innovation as an organisational level judgement while the process of innovation assimilation and integration is evaluated in terms of the user behaviour within the organisation. The model also highlights, several factors in different dimensions supposedly influence the adoption process of Information System Security innovations in organisations.
