Abstract :

Implementation of information system provides many benefits to the organization. However, issues of information system security should be seriously considered because organization’s data are confidential and need to be protected as it might be exposed to unauthorized users. Employees’ behavior is already known as one of information security issues because people are sometime careless and do not want to comply with information security policies due to time consuming and inconvenience to practice recommended information security behavior. Thus, this study was carried out with aim to explore and develop a conceptual framework that can be used to investigate the constructs that influence employees’ behavior to comply with information security policies. In finding the research gap, this study reviewed existing literatures related to this field extensively. Employee’s behavior toward information security is important because they are users of information system that give an impact to the effectiveness of information system security. Therefore, employees’ behavior should be seriously considered as a substantial issue in information security.
