Title: Behavioural Thresholds in the Context of Information Security
Author(s): Dirk Snyman, Hennie Kruger
Reference: pp22-32
Keywords: information security; human behaviour; behaviour threshold analysis; security culture; information security awareness programs.
Abstract: This research presents the exploratory application of behavioural threshold theory on group behaviour related to information security. Behavioural threshold analysis is presented as a possi-ble tool for aiding the development of security awareness programs. Generic behavioural thresh-old analysis is presented and then applied in the domain of information security by collecting data on the behavioural thresholds of individuals in a group setting and how they influence each other when it comes to security behaviour. The results of behavioural threshold analysis are presented in order to illustrate the feasibility of the approach as an aid for the development of security awareness programs.
