The research domain of end-user’s information security behaviours has been gaining much attention over the recent years. While the nature of intention to perform information security behaviours are being revealed, there are still gaps in this area. In particular, few studies have addressed whether such intention remains across contexts, especially from home to public places. Secondly, the amount of the cyber-threats swells with the increase of personal devices with the rapid adoption of the BYOD trend. This research employed MSEM methods to develop a conceptual model based on Protection Motivation Theory by using data collected from 252 higher education students in a BYOD Australian university. Our findings confirmed and explored in details how intention to perform information security behaviours varied due to the change of context. Academics and practitioners could mitigate the security gap by focusing on the intention’s differences discussed in our findings.
