Abstract This research employed a longitudinal social network analysis (SNA) method, called stochastic actor-oriented modelling (SAOM), to analyse the inter-relationship between the employees' socialisation and information security (InfoSec) climate perceptions which are the employees' perceptions of their colleagues and supervisors' InfoSec practices. Unlike prior studies, we conceptualised socialisation in the form of six networks: the provisions of work advice and of organisational updates, the provisions of personal advice, interpersonal trust in expertise, the provisions of InfoSec advice and InfoSec troubleshooting support. The adoption of the SAOM method enabled not only analysis of why an employee chooses to interact with or to send a network tie to another employee, but also how an employee's perception of InfoSec climate is affected by the ties that they possess in the network. This research suggests new directions for InfoSec behavioural research based on the adoption of SNA methods to study InfoSec-related perceptions and behaviours, while findings about the selection and influence mechanisms offer theoretical insights and practical methods to enhance InfoSec in the workplace.
