Nurses' awareness of security policies had a positive significant influence on their perceived severity (t= 9.1, P < 0.01, β=0.41) and certainty (t= 7.3, P < 0.01, β=0.35) of breach penalties. Training programs had also a significant influence on their perceived severity (t= 2.3, P < 0.05, β=0.37) and certainty (t= 2.8, P < 0.01, β=0.44) of breach penalties.
