Cyber security awareness combines knowledge and taking the necessary measures to protect organizations' information assets. Moreover, when security personnel is aware of electronic security, they understand electronic threats, the potential impact of a cyberattack on society, and the steps required to mitigate the risks and prevent cybercrime from infiltrating their online workspace. Awareness comes from digital threat research, where the authors provide basic guidelines that, if respected and applied, can reduce security risks in the electronic world. These guidelines can help increase awareness of electronic threats and also provide information on how to interact safely in the electronic world. Users who know how to deal with the risks in cyberspace are less afraid of becoming victims of cybercrime. The insights gained in this study are helpful for all cyberspace users and have practical value as they can use for further cybercrime research.
