A case study was conducted in a large interior contractor to explore eight organizational networks, four of which focus on security behaviors. The researchers employed social network analysis methods, including quantitative and qualitative ones, to analyze the case study’s data and demonstrate the analytical capability of the network analysis approach in the behavioral security ﬁeld. Key features of the security networks’ structures include high transitivity, hierarchy, and centralization, whereas reci- procity and density are lower than other organizational networks. Moreover, work-related interactions were found to impact security inﬂuence, among which giving IT advice increases signiﬁcantly one’s in- ﬂuential status in security matters. Practical implications include suggestions about the use of network analysis methods as a tool for security managers to monitor their behavioral security networks and de- vise appropriate strategies. Potential research directions are also elaborated, which future research can employ and promote the novel and practical use of network analysis techniques.© 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
