Interests: My research interest lies in exploring why employees do and do not follow information system security policies. In the first case, how do the antecedents of policy compliance behavioral intent vary over a threat spectrum? Second, what are the factors an employee encounters that change positive intentions to actual non-compliance behavior? Research in this area requires an interdisciplinary approach that requires a deep understanding of information security risks, human-system interaction principles, and sociological and individual factors involved in the decision and action processes associated with policy compliance. While the topic is universally applicable, I am most interested in the context of United States Department of Defense organizations.
