Abstract

In this paper we present the results of a survey that examined the attitude of users to cyber crime as well as their awareness of cyber security threats. The study was conducted among Israeli and Slovenian students. The study results reveal significant differences in the level of cyber awareness between evaluated groups of cyber users in both countries. The results may serve as the initial phase of a practical education approach aimed at evaluating the impact of cyber education on the level of cyber awareness of individuals. The study implication can also be utilized for the process of development courses to enhance individuals’ awareness of cyber hazards and to reduce the level of cyber victimization amongst users. Finally, the paper’s findings contribute to a better understanding of which factors are involved in the cyber awareness gap.
