Abstract
As organisations are developing people-centric security workplaces, where proactive security behaviours are fostered, it is important to understand more about the sources of security influence. This research applied social network analysis methods to investigate security influence within a large interior contractor in Vietnam. The findings revealed that security influence occurs between employees in the same department, especially comes from those at senior positions, have longer tenure, or younger age. Engagement in daily work and security-related activities can also increase the likelihood of influencing security behaviours. Moreover, we found the security influence network to be transitive and have a hierarchical structure.
