An Overview of International Cyber-Security Awareness Raising and Educational Initiatives (2011)
3.8. Cost effectiveness
None of the 7 evaluations consider cost effectiveness in any detail. Where costs were noted in campaigns (4 out of 68 campaigns examined in Component 1 of this study disclosed costs), they appear high. Refer to Section 2.6 Costs at page 10.
This makes is difficult to identify Cyber-Security education and training campaigns that are cost-effective. This lack of data may be a barrier to the development of effective future campaigns.
