Re: Brief them properly
Definitely provides further context to the study. I still think its important to cite that different folks see things through different lenses. These differences help provide a more concrete basis to the study and in turn validate it.

Brief them properly
It is expected of employees to give their answers as such because they are not security experts. They have not been properly briefed regarding what are the risks involved during their daily work habits. They answered as such because they do not know any better.

Risk Ownership
I think two facets come into play here. Ultimately, as data owners executives of said data are more heavily responsible for securing data at the company even though the data custodians (employees) directly touch said data. Due to this they way the risks more heavily and are more inclined to support data that creates a narrative that more needs to be done to secure the data. Employees on the other hand, and I believe the term is used to be department agnostic not security centric, support a business function. Many will not stop to think of the ramifications of what they are doing until they are told by a security function that it is not best practice. Due to this ignorance it is more than likely that those individuals surveyed would be inclined to think that they are not jeopardizing company data.

Han Solo and Srgt. Schultz
Solp: It's not my fault.  Schultz:  I know nothing.  Of course employees are blameless, as there is that line called UNEMPLOYMENT and so they have done nothing wrong and if they did, well, it is the corp at fault because they did not provide security controls.  It was there, so, well I had to take it with me.  You never stopped me from walking into the safe (wide open anyway) and remove cash.
