The main purpose of IT security policies is to protect companies against intrusion and unwanted spread of information. Statistics show that IT related crimes tend to increase and because of that it is important, from the company’s side of view, to be well prepared. The IT security policy is an important part of that preparation.
A lot of the crimes related to IT can be deduced indirectly to employees at the companies where the crime takes place. By creating a better understanding of the security aspects and threats, the employee can help to protect the company from this indirect criminal activity.
This Bachelor thesis examines whether the personnel at Blekinge Wing (F 17) are complying their current IT security policy. This is done in form of an extensive questionnaire. The purpose of this thesis is to examine if the employees at F 17 are complying an already sanctioned IT security policy.
The result of our examination shows that the employees at F 17 in some ways don’t comply with their IT security policy. There are differences in how the employees comply with the policy depending on their educational level of IT security and in what way they have been informed about the policy. The ones that hadn’t taken part of the policy at all are the ones that tend to break the most against the policy.
