  • Abstract The most common approach taken by organization to insure information security is to punish deviating behaviors. However, recently studies argue the need to pay attention on enhancing employee's capability on and willingness to comply with information security policies. Following this research stream and viewing psychological ownership as willingness and self-efficacy as capability, this study attempts to understand the antecedents of these two variables and their impacts on the compliance of information security policies. We adopted survey approach and collected data from 234 employees who use computer intensively to support their work. Statistical analysis results show that among the proposed three antecedents, perceived control is one critical antecedent of psychological ownership. On the other hand, while past experience has negative impact, education background and training positively affect self-efficacy. Finally, self-efficacy functions as expected but, surprisingly, psychological ownership has negative impact on compliance.
