An Overview of International Cyber-Security Awareness Raising and Educational Initiatives (2011)

4.4. Further research

This study identified some gaps in the research and literature regarding Cyber-Security education and awareness raising campaigns.

The most obvious gap is the lack of information on evaluations and evaluation methodology (discussed in detail above). This includes traditional external program and campaign evaluation, and also the integration of ‘work in progress’ internal evaluation into the design process.[8]

However, another significant gap is that the literature examined does not address the specific needs of any target groups (other than some limited information on different age groups). There is very little information available regarding the Cyber-Security education needs (or suitable education tools) regarding other vulnerable groups differentiated by language, disability, income level, or other factors.
