Individuals have two types of focus involving privacy and technology: a person’s concerns with organizational practices towards the privacy of personal information (management focus), and the person’s self-efficacy of computers (technology focus). People view management of personal information and information technology as unrelated issues.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between computer self-efficacy, and concerns for personal information privacy.
