The awareness behaviour of students on cyber security awareness by using social media platforms: A case study at Central University of Technology

The unawareness of users about threats that can face them in cyberspace, can cause the successful execution of such threats. Users should establish a culture of awareness before entering the workforce. This study found that there is a lack among students to engage with cyber security awareness (CSA) initiatives that are available. It is suggested that academic institutions can contribute to the awareness of students by providing CSA material on a regular basis to them. Institutions can make use of social media platforms (Facebook and YouTube) and also communication mediums (institutional website and e-mails) to communicate CSA material with the students.
