Abstract: This paper proposes a research method that investigates the risk perceptions of computer end-users relating to organisational Information Security (InfoSec) and the situational factors that influence these perceptions. This method uses the repertory grid technique (RGT) within recorded semi-structured interviews to elicit computer end-user perceptions, thoughts, beliefs and views pertaining to information security risks and threats. The suitability and appropriateness of using the RGT for this task is also discussed.
