Assess Information Security Awareness - An
Exploratory Study
Author(s): Hennie Kruger, Lynette Drevin, Tjaart Steyn
Reference: pp13-22
Keywords: Information security awareness, vocabulary test
Abstract: The dependence on human involvement and human behavior to protect information assets
makes it necessary to have an information security awareness program to make people aware
of their roles and responsibilities towards information security. The aim of this paper is to
examine the feasibility of an information security vocabulary test as an aid to assess awareness
levels and to help with the identification of suitable areas or topics to be included in an
information security awareness program. The use of such a vocabulary test is illustrated and
results obtained suggest that information security awareness vocabulary tests are useful and
should be considered when planning and developing an information security awareness
program.
