Title: An Ontology for a National Cyber-Security Culture Environment
Author(s): Noluxolo Gcaza, Rossouw Von Solms, Joey Jansen van Vuuren

Keywords: Cyber Security, Cyber-Security Culture, Ontology
Abstract: The modern-day use of cyberspace has created a world that is increasingly relying on online services to operate. Nevertheless, cyberspace has a ‘dark side’; as there are many risks associated it. This ‘dark side’ has called for safety and security measures to be implemented through cyber security. As such, cultivating a supportive culture is perceived to be an important contributing factor to cyber security. For this reason, many nations aspire to cultivate a culture of cyber security amongst all the users of cyberspace. However, what is lacking currently is a well-defined and delineated definition of the cyber-security culture domain. To define this domain, this paper proposes a national cyber-security culture ontology.
