    Abstract

    Organizations develop and formulate security compliance policies and procedures to ensure employees' adherence to the security requirements as well as the protection of the data/information. In this study, we explore the use Positive Psychology to introduce positive enforcement factors namely Positive Organisational Behavior and enabling resources as determinants of security engagement. The proposed model focuses on developing positive traits by providing enabling resources that eventuate better maintenance of employees' security commitment and compliance that other compliance models have not clearly addressed.
