Webinar to explore impact of employees not following digital security policies

Employees choosing to ignore organizational policies regarding safe computing practices can cause security breaches resulting in serious financial and non-financial issues.

Research on the importance of social bonding in work environments, individuals’ security knowledge and organizational climate in improving agreement is the focus of this week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series.

On Friday, March 12, Princely Ifinedo, Associate Professor of Finance, Operations and Information Systems at Goodman, will present co-authored research that delves into this topic during his talk, “Do Social Bonding, Organizational Climate, and Individuals’ Perceptions of Security Threats Matter for Security Policy Compliance Intentions?”

His current research interests include information systems security management, information systems adoption in business and health care, human-computer interaction, and information systems issues in developing and transitioning economies.
