An online survey was designed to collect data about students’ general awareness of cybersecurity and their overall behaviour and perception of privacy, authentication, and trust. Ten questions were constructed to measure the three dimensions of knowledge (what you know), attitude (what you think), and behaviour (what you do) . The decision was made to keep the survey brief to increase the return rate. The study included the following ten questions:
Do you consider yourself knowledgeable about the concept of cybersecurity?
When using the computer system and Internet, what do you consider as being private information?
On a scale of 1–10 (1 being the least secure and 10 being the most secure), rank how secure you think your communications are on each of the following platforms.
Do you use a harder-to-guess password to access your bank account than to access your social networking accounts?
Do you know what two-factor authentication (2FA) is and do you use it?
Have you ever rejected a mobile app request for accessing your contacts, camera, or location?
Do you ever reject app permissions?
Do you have reason to believe that you are being observed online without your consent?
Do you think that your data on the university system is secure?
Do you think your communication through the learning management system (LMS) is secure?
