Soldiers of the United States Army commit the majority of information security policy violations from their desks. The Army as an organization relies heavily on information systems to conduct daily business just like any other organization. But the motivation of Soldiers to comply with published security policy differs from their civilian organization counterparts.
This thesis examines the application of a protection motivation and deterrence model for determining information security policy compliance intention. It presents the idea that what motivates employees in civilian workplace is not true of Soldiers in their duties. The purpose of this thesis is to pave the way for further research into information security compliance research in military organizations.
