Abstract

We present the results of an investigation of university campus security policies, the perceptions of the students regarding such policies and the resulting implications for campus security implementation. Our study shows that there are significant gaps between the students and the security administrators with regards to the perceptions of students regarding IS security in general, and with regards to the policies implemented by security administrators. Significant communication gaps exist regarding the understanding and the significance of those policies amongst the students.
