Abstract: This study examined the relationship between perception of risk, organisational commitment, and Information Security Awareness (ISA). An online survey was completed by 269 working Australians. Perceptions of the Internet of Things (IoT) risk as it pertains to physically securing mobile devices was assessed. Organisational commitment and perception of personal risk significantly predicted ISA, as did two of the psychometric paradigm items. Demographic variables (age and gender) also significantly predicted variance in ISA, as did frequency of workplace information security training, albeit negatively. By identifying organisational commitment and perception of personal risk as significant predictors of ISA, this research has the potential to inform the development of information security training, aiming to enhance employee ISA.
