Compliance with information security policies (ISPs) is a key factor in reducing an organization’s information security risks. As such, understanding employees’ compliance behavior with ISPs is an important first step to leverage knowledge worker assets in efforts targeted toward reducing information security risks. This study adapts the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to examine users’ behavioral intention to comply with ISPs. The impact of information security awareness on behavioral intentions to comply is also considered in the research model. This is a research in progress, and an instrument is being developed to conduct a survey study to gather data from employees in the banking sector in Jordan.
