Based on the protection motivation theory, this study develops a theoretical model to identify the key factors that affect employee’s intention to comply with organization’s BYOD security policies. This model also enriches general PMT by investigating how unique BYOD features may play moderating roles on the relationships between employee’s security perceptions and compliance intention. A survey on organization employees who were applying BYOD in their workplace was conducted. The research model was tested using the partial least squares (PLS) approach. The results suggest that employees’ threat appraisal and coping appraisal affect their intention to comply with BYOD security policies. Further, mixed usage of device and company’s surveillance visibility are verified moderators. This study contributes to both academics and management practice.
