Description

The motivation for this research in progress is to illuminate on the effects of moral and subjective norms on employees’ compliance with information systems security. Many scholars examined the effects of different factors on information security compliance. Divergent results were found in literature. In this research, we draw from the existing research findings to examine the role of norms, especially moral and subjective norms, in improving compliance with information systems security in organizations. We provide four propositions that examine the type of relationships among subjective norms, moral norms, and information security compliance intentions. To the best of our knowledge, these propositions have not been examined in any reference disciplines.
