Employees’ compliance with information security policies (ISP) plays a key role in ensuring the effectiveness of the “prevention” phase by avoiding risky information security behaviors. Avenues for understanding how to enhance employees’ compliance with ISP may be through the exploration of their ISP commitment and organizational commitment. Organizational behavior researchers have suggested that job crafting can increase employees’ work engagement and organizational commitment. On the basis of the job demands-resources model and Meyer and Allen's three-component model of organizational commitment, we will test a framework that demonstrate how job crafting explains employees’ intention to comply with information security policies. In particular, our model theorizes that employees who can craft their own jobs are likely to remain committed to their organizations and the ISP, and then have high intention to comply with ISP. This study will empirically test the model with data collected from 300 employees of Taiwan’s top 1000 companies.
