Abstract

A call for adopting information security awareness amongst end-users has been suggested over the years. Adoption can occur through various methods. These methods each hold their own characteristics, whether being of a positive or negative nature. The challenge to find an appropriate method on which to establish and engage in a security dialog with a user has been written on extensively over the past few years. A number of common key points have been raised in research that addresses information security awareness and how it is conveyed to users. Additional to these common key points, this paper suggests using browser integration as a medium to promote security values and provide security suggestions based on a specific user’s behavioural pattern.
