While the rise of WikiLeaks and other leak-related organizations has been reflected in the research in international relations, it has received limited focus within the field of information systems. This study surveyed current college students in order to understand what factors may play a role in encouraging students to show a degree of concern in regards to information leaks. Factors such as concernment about the national security of the United States and demographics have been analyzed against the degree of concern about information leaks reported by the students in the survey. The paper concludes with calls for further research within the field of information systems in regards to the impacts of information leaks and other leak-related organizations.
