The present paper regards risk, threats and organizational issues that are associated with human behavior; e.Business is no exception. Organizational actors in e.Business organizations make security decisions with a wide variety of meanings: information systems interactions, access to physical premises, behavior within the workplace, utilization of tools and work instruments, are just a few examples of the realm of security decisions that are made within all organizations, and e.Business organizations in particular. The way in which the risk is perceived greatly influences any decision. The aim of the present paper is to conjugate general risk theories in terms of human behavior and system security (as opposed to system risk) in order to identify a common baseline of risk and behavior, that will eventually lead to a structured framework that will contribute to the discipline of organizational studies.
