Abstract
Recent research on information security has recognized that cultural differences need to be considered, when explaining information security policy compliance behavior (ISPCB). There is also evidence that social mechanisms, such as social learning can influence ISPCB. What existing research has neglected is a relationship between such social mechanisms and their relation to employee’s individual cultural values to explain ISPCB, whereby current research shows that ISPCB as well as social learning are culture-dependent. This study examines (1) the impact of social learning on ISPCB and (2) the influence of cultural values on social learning mechanisms and their association with ISPCB. Our sample, consisting of employees related to information systems, confirm a connection between the mechanisms of SLT and ISPCB and their cultural dependence. In conclusion, we defined implication points of our theoretical research and practical recommendations. A description of future research suggestions concludes this paper.
