A Wolf, Hyena, and Fox Game to Raise Cybersecurity Awareness Among Pre-school Children

Abstract

Currently, children have a greater exposure to cyberspace and cyber threats than any previous generation. Digital technologies are evolving continuously with the result that cell phones, tablets and similar devices are more accessible to both young and old. Technological advancements create many opportunities, however it also exposes its users to many threats. Pre-school children are especially vulnerable to these threats, as they are rarely made aware of, or empowered to defend themselves against these threats. An approach to solving this problem is to create a mobile serious game that promotes cybersecurity awareness among pre-school children. The focus of this paper is the part of the game that promotes the use of strong passwords and not sharing these passwords with one’s friends.
