Abstract: Purpose – This study aims at investigating the extent of SysTrust principles and criteria as an internal control approach for assuring the reliability of accounting information system (AIS) were being implemented in Jordanian business organizations. Design/methodology/approach – The study is based on primary data collected through a structured questionnaire from 239 out 328 of shareholdings companies. The survey units were the shareholding companies in Jordan, and the single key respondents approach was employed. The extents of SysTrust principles were also measured. Previously validated instruments were used where required. The data were analysed using t-test and ANOVA. Findings – The results indicated that the extent of SysTrust being implemented could be considered to be moderate at this stage. This implies that there are some variations among business organizations in terms of their level of implementing of SysTrust principles and criteria. The results also showed that the extent of SysTrust principles being implemented were found varied among business organizations based on their type of business sector. However, there were not found varied due to their size of business and a length of time in business (experience). Research limitations/implications – This study is only conducted in Jordan as a developing country. Although Jordan is a valid indicator of prevalent factors in the wider MENA region and developing countries, the lack of external validity of this research means that any generalizations of the research findings should be taken with caution. Future research can be orientated in other national and cultural settings and compared with the results of this study. Practical implications – The study provides evidence of the need for management to recognize the importance of the implementation of SysTrust principles and criteria as an internal control for assuring the reliability of AIS within their organizations and be aware which of these principles are appropriate to their company’s size and industry sector. Originality/value- The findings would be valuable for academic researchers, managers and professional accounting to acquire a better undemanding of the current status of the implementation of the SysTrust principles (i.e., availability, security, Integrity processing, confidentiality, and privacy) as an internal control method for assuring the reliability of AIS by testing the phenomenon in Jordan as a developing country.
