Abstract

Presidential Regulation No. 82 of 2022 demonstrates the Indonesian government's dedication to protecting Vital Information Infrastructure, which has become increasingly susceptible to cyber attacks. Intrusion detections at PT ABC reached 79,575 in 2021, and malware, botnets, targeted attacks, malicious websites/domains, and ransomware attacks may cause considerable financial losses. The implication of these incidents is that employees' awareness of information security is critical, in addition to security technologies like firewalls and monitoring tools. To enhance employees' knowledge of information security, this study aims to evaluate the information security awareness among PT ABC personnel using the HAIS-Q survey instrument alongside ISO/IEC 27001:2013 criteria. The study will provide valuable recommendations to improve the organization's security protocols. This research intends to investigate the correlation between employees' knowledge, attitude, and behavior towards information security. Data was collected through a questionnaire and analyzed using the Pearson Correlation, Cronbach's Alpha, descriptive statistics, linear regression, and Kruskal-Wallis test method. The study findings suggest that the overall information security awareness level among employees is "Good". However, certain areas like internet usage, information handling, asset management, incident reporting, and the use of mobile devices need improvement. To address these areas, the study recommends promoting information security awareness according to employee categories.
