It is well known that while there is a strong correlation between adoption of ICTs and economic growth there is also a corresponding strong correlation between the adoption of ICTs and increased ICT-related technological threats that can have severe economic and other negative consequences. Within this context cybersecurity has become a major issue in both “developed” and “developing” countries, with humans being considered the “weakest link in the chain” of system security. While the cybersecurity literature has previously explored constructs such as awareness and self-efficacy to explain cybersecurity compliance behavior, there has been no exploration of the impacts of individuals’ decision styles on cybersecurity related compliance behavior and some other antecedents of such behavior. In this paper we address this issue using an exploratory approach and present a causal model for consideration in future research.
