A well-crafted information security policy is one of the key ingredients for a ensuring a secure organization (Paananen, et al., 2019). However, implementation of a security policy can result in disruptive organizational change (Lapke & Dhillon, 2008). There is a gap in the literature in examining the relationship between effective leadership and sound security policy implementation. We propose that the examination of leadership through the use of qualitative case study in organizations that have recently implemented new IS security policy can illustrate the effectiveness of good leadership on IS security policy implementation. Methods for data collection will rely on semi structured interview questions based on the theoretical frameworks we will build for leadership and security policy implementation.
