About Miranda Kajtazi

Miranda is currently an Assistant Profesor in Information Systems, at the Informatics department at Örebro University School of Business. She received her PhD Degree from Linnaeus University. Her research lies within the area of Information Systems Security. Miranda has a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Växjö University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from South East European University.

She has also worked in industry as a software engineer and a database administrator.

Her research interest concerns one of the most crucial resources of our human and social affairs: Information. Her focus is on information systems security in organizations, with the objective to explore and understand employees’ compliance and noncompliance behaviour with information security policies. Thus, Miranda’s intention is to explore the role of insecurity of information in organizations that many times contributes to problems in a disorderly fashion, often occurring through information technology.
