In the paper we examined attitudes, intent and adherence to information security policies and procedures in SMEs in Slovakia. Data were collected from the employees of several SME in Slovak republic. Not all enterprises have established information security policies and procedures. Only 443 respondents (from 722) worked in a SME that had formulated an information security policy. The impact of the size of enterprises, age on the measured variables has not been shown. IT related jobs, managerial post and education level of the respondents has shown significant impact in the evaluation of attitudes, intentions and adherence to information security policies and procedures. From statistical methods we use the maximum-likelihood estimation of the polychoric correlation coefficient. The calculations have been carried out in R statistical programming environment.
