RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INFORMATION SECURITY BEHAVIOR AND SATISFACTION DEGREE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS AND THE MEDIATION EFFECT OF TEAM EFFECTIVENESS AND ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT
Considering the importance of corporate information security management, this paper explores how employee’s information security behavior is influenced by the satisfaction degree of their psychological needs, based on self-determination theory (SDT) and hierarchical regression. During the exploration, the employees’ psychological needs were divided into three types: autonomy needs, competence needs and relatedness needs. Next, the authors discussed how that influence is mediated by team effectiveness and organizational commitment. The results show that, the satisfaction degrees of autonomy needs, competence needs and relatedness needs all have a positive influence on the information security behavior; the influence of the satisfaction degree of autonomy needs over the information security behavior is positively regulated by team effectiveness, while the influence of the satisfaction degree of autonomy needs and relatedness needs is positively regulated by organizational commitment. The research findings lay the basis for improving corporate information security management and preventing information security violations by employees.
