Information Security Awareness Campaign: An Alternate Approach
The destruction due to computer security incidents warns organizations to adopt security measures. In addition to technological measures, individual’s information security awareness is also necessary. Different psychological theories have been proposed to make an effective information security awareness campaign. These information security awareness campaigns are limited in their ability in raising awareness of the participants of the campaign. Although much research has been done in the area of information security awareness, however, this paper considers the applications of healthcare awareness and environmental awareness strategies to make an effective information security awareness campaign. In this paper, we study some of the useful research work conducted in the healthcare and environmental safety awareness domains. These researches have been carried out by well-known researchers in the field of psychology. Finally, we apply these healthcare and environmental awareness best practices to propose an effective information security awareness campaign.
