Information and data security have become all too important matters for academics, business and world leaders, and the everyday individual. Our lives revolve around data, and its protection is an important matter for any data steward. However, data is usually at most risk from those who have legitimate access to the data and due to erroneous, inappropriate or malicious behaviors, data becomes accessible to others that should not have access. Our understanding of the behaviors that that are motivated due to a desire to protect one's self from a threat has been of interest to the information security research stream, which has largely based its work on the theory of protection motivation.
