Abstract:

This paper builds a research model to examine the impact of security policy awareness and data protection awareness of mobile devices on employees’ trust belief. A survey instrument was administered to a sample in various organizations in the United States (US). Collected data were analyzed using Partial Least Squares - Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM). Results using 222 participants showed that the security policy awareness of mobile devices positively and significantly contributes to employees’ trusting beliefs. Likewise, the data protection awareness of mobile devices positively and significantly contributes to employees’ trusting beliefs. The findings are discussed.
