[Abstract]

With special interests in the military, this study examined what would influence soldier’s intention and attitude on their information security policy compliance (ISPC). Structural equation modeling analyses of 332 soldiers’ data showed that the ISPC intention was affected by subjective norms and ISPC attitude. Then, the ISPC attitude was affected by one’s perceived security safety or security vulnerability, intrinsic benefits, and the loyalty to the military. This study, unlike other technology-oriented studies, focuses on human resources. Thus, it can contribute to the development of future information security management strategies for soldiers.
