Employees’ complacency, ignorance and unawareness of security are amongst the biggest obstacles to maintaining IT security within an organisation. Indeed, technical security controls alone are not enough to provide a real protection if there is no human participation acquired in this stage. As a consequence, it is desirable for many organizations develop an effective security awareness programme; by which user awareness could be enhanced. The objectives of this paper are to explore the extent of security awareness problems and to ideally specify and develop methods by which security culture could be cultivated (through training and awareness initiatives).
