The continuous information security failures in organizations have led focus towards organizational culture. It is argued that the development of culture of information security would subsequently lead to a secure organization. However, limited studies have been conducted to understand information security culture. In order to cultivate a culture of information security, it is imperative to develop methods that would allow some manner of assessment. In this research study, we follow survey research method to identify factors of information security culture in an organization and develop an instrument using exploratory factor analysis. The underlying theory is Hall’s (1959) primary message systems. The data was collected from 300 participants from southeast United States. Our findings indicate that group cohesiveness, professional code, information security awareness, work practices, planning and empowerment are important factors of information security culture.
