"Security Concerns in the Nomological Network of Trust and Personality (Big 5): First Order Vs. Second Order"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "I procured Mplus (Muthén and Muthén 1998-2012) software using the grant money. The software has enabled me to carry out the analysis for this project. The paper is currently under review (revise and resubmit as of April 24, 2014) at Decision Support Systems (DSS) which is a prestigious journal in MIS area. DSS ranks 13th in the list of Top IS Journals (Dean et al. 2011 p. A5). Following is the abstract of the paper: Even though Privacy concerns (PC) and security concerns (SC) are acknowledged as separate constructs, many studies argue that they are related or, even worse, confused. Building upon the non-overlapping SC and PC dimensions, we propose Internet Users Information Transmission Security Concern (IUITSC) scale. We argue that the scale when used in conjunction with PC scale would cover the entire gamut of SC-PC. The construct is tested in a nomological network of Big 5 and trust. The paper uses the methodology suggested by Stewart and Segars (2002), and first develops the theoretical foundation for multiple factor structures including various combinations of first order factor models as well as the second order factor model. The results based on extensive statistical tests including chi-square difference tests suggest that IUITSC may be represented as a second-order factor structure rather than a set of four first-order factors. The results show that personality dimensions of conscientiousness, emotional instability and extraversion are positively associated with IUITSC (second order), which in turn is found to significantly lower trust in a website. Big5 dimensions are found to impact the IUITSC differently depending upon the factor structure."
