Abstract

A big challenge facing Social Networks (SNs) and other organisations has been what to measure when determining the adequacy and effectiveness of awareness programmes. This study defines security dimension as Knowledge, Attitude and Behaviour, and identifies them as the main influencing factors to consider in awareness measurement. Web quiz was developed for data gathering and risk scores were calculated to validate the research findings by investigating the impacts of these factors on awareness in SNs.
