Currently, information security policy compliance research mainly investigates information security compliant behaviors of employees from general deterrence theory or protection motivation theory. However, these studies focus on the discussions of security specifications in organization and the motivations of individuals’ behaviors but omit the influences of contextual effects on employees’ psychological states and employees’ information security policy compliance. To fill this gap, we consider information security climate as background factors and psychological ownership as personal factors to investigate their impacts on information security policy compliance intentions. We will collect data from employees working in the high-tech industry in Taiwan to explore the relationships proposed in the research model. We conclude by explicating the implications of this research for academics and practitioners, along with compelling future research possibilities.
