Many organizations recognize employees as great assets in the efforts to reduce risk related to information security. Employee's compliance with information security rules and regulations of organization is the key to strengthening information security. It is crucial for organizations to understand factors affecting technology compliance to improve employee compliance behavior. To understand compliance behavior this study identifies the antecedents of employee compliance with the information security policy (ISP) of an organization. Specifically, this study aims to understand the effects of satisfactions, normative beliefs, and self-efficacy on user compliance with mandatory information security policy. Results show that an employee's ISP compliance intention is significantly influenced by satisfaction with technology, self-efficacy to comply, and normative beliefs. Enabling beliefs significantly affect an employee's satisfaction. Furthermore, employee's technology policy compliance is strongly influenced by technology compliance intentions. However, compliance intention is not significantly influenced by satisfaction with management interventions of compliance and satisfaction with compliance supporting higher objectives. Satisfaction with management interventions of technology compliance is not significantly influenced by perceived fairness of reward. This study shed light on the role of self-efficacy to comply, normative beliefs, satisfactions, and enabling beliefs in an organizations effort to encourage compliance with information security rules and regulations.
