The presented research offers an understanding of the reasons technology professionals choose to implement humanistic or technological measures in securing information. The decision-making factors of cost, reliability, vulnerability, and top management support are examined to understand their influence on technology professionals. The study is based on a survey distributed to information technology (IT) professionals in and around the greater Los Angeles area. This research will hypothesize that all four decision-making factors relate to a more humanistic or technological decision of securing information. The existing body of research clearly shows that cost, reliability, vulnerability, and top management support are key factors used by technology professionals in securing information. These four factors are of utmost importance to technology professionals, as well as many future decision makers in determining the degree to which organizations should implement humanistic or technological measures in securing information.
