A large part of information systems security approaches is technical in nature with less consideration on people and organizational issues. To this end, there is a need to investigate other means of managing information systems security since most information systems security approaches although valuable they focus on technical oriented solutions, e.g. checklists, risk analysis, evaluation methods and ignore the social aspects of risks and the informal structures of organizations. This paper adopts a psychological-organizational point of view to information systems security by investigating the role and application of goals to informal structured organizations in the banking industry.
