Abstract

The purpose of this study is to contribute to a better understanding of the current status of the participation of the information security professionals (ISPs) in the electronic communities of practice (eCoP) in the information security (IS) domain in Norway. An online survey is conducted with 56 ISPs working in Norway to investigate this issue. This study used the logistic regression as a statistical technique to formulate the results and findings. The probability of an ISP being a user of eCoP is tested with demographic data, nature of the job, and the knowledge sharing preference. Furthermore, the determinants of the knowledge sharing theories, i.e., the theory of planned behavior, the motivation theory, and perceived trust theory are used to test our statistical model. The findings of this study are useful to get the initial insight into the determinants that influence the participation of ISPs in eCoP in Norway.
