报告摘要：How to motivate employees to comply with the information security policy (ISP) is one of the main challenges that organizations face today. Peer monitoring happens when employees observe their peers’ behavior and respond to their ISP noncompliance either by reporting or correcting them. How peer monitoring facilitates ISP compliance is the focus of this study. Drawing on the literature from organizational prosocial behavior and management, this study investigates (1) the effectiveness of peer monitoring in motivating employee ISP compliance, (2) the mechanisms through which peer monitoring influence employee ISP compliance, (3) the social context (group reward structure) that promotes the perception of peer monitoring. We tested our hypotheses with 891 valid responses collected via Qualtrics panel. Our results shows that peer monitoring in the group is positively associated with employee ISP compliance, and such an effect is partially mediated by commitment to the ISP and perceived deterrence of ISP noncompliance. In addition, peer monitoring in the group is induced by perception of collective responsibility, which itself is a product of perception responsibility by commission and responsibility by omission. Theoretical and practical implications of the study are discussed.
