Abstract

Today’s Organizations develop, formulate and update employees’ security compliance policies and standards to ensure their adherence to the security requirements as well as the protection of the data/information. Prior research in the domain of human behavioural studies highlighted that internal threats predominantly are the result of poor employees’ compliance, behaviours, and poor security compliance policies within the organization. In this research, we draw, explore and analyse few findings in the area of behavioural compliance theories and accordingly we propose a new model (The Positive Traits, Personal Strength “PP Model”). The model is based on two main intellectual capital characteristics namely, the employee’s positive traits (courage, interpersonal skills, wisdom, positive experience, leadership skills) and personal strengths (self-efficacy, expertise, optimism). In this research we investigated the most widely used models for information security and we analysed these models by identifying their weaknesses and strengths and we finally compared these methods to the research’s proposed model and argued about the effectiveness of the model as compared to existing ones.
