Cyber Security Awareness

Good Practices

Promote comprehensive awareness among the public, companies and government employees of cyber-related threats and empower the population with the knowledge and sense of shared responsibility to practice safe and informed behaviours in the use of ICTs.

Cyber security awareness promotes foundational understandings on cyber threats and risk, cyber hygiene, and appropriate response options. It informs citizens on best practices and proactive measures when confronted with cyber risks.

Nations should promote cyber awareness of cyber-related threats among the public, companies and government employees. To streamline and facilitate national cyber security awareness campaigns a worldwide repository (or repositories) should be developed for good practices, expertise and materials. Such a repository can help increase in the number and quality of national cyber security awareness campaigns. The repository should be continuously maintained and updated to reflect new technological developments and insights.
