Abstract [en]

We studied which factors affect the adherence to password policies by users within a government agency. The agency’s functions are of such nature that a potential information leakage can endanger peoples’ lives. The factors we studied were resetting passwords, updating passwords, amount of passwords, passwords complexity, user’s fear of forgetting passwords, organizational cul- ture and informal routines.Five semi-structured interviews were conducted with employees in the organization. We found that four factors affected the users’ behaviour in the studied department: resetting passwords, updating passwords, the organizational culture and informal routines.
