General Public

Responsibility for cyber security is for all, including the general public. The National Cyber Security Awareness and Education Campaign is therefore also addressing this sector and in particular focussing with appropriate campaigns to the various segments of the population.

A recent online survey conducted by MITA amongst the general population gives a better indication of areas of concern and cyber security challenges that need to be effectively addressed amongst the sector. Traditional modes of communication such as newspapers, TV and billboards; as well as online communication channels such as social media as well as this updated dedicated Website are being resorted to in the process. More innovative approaches, such as through drama, on TV and through theatre shall also be applied so as to ensure more effective dissemination of cyber security hygiene amongst the general public.

Ultimately, the key message is that apart from social responsibility, cyber security may also be an opportunity to interact responsibly and securely with benefits both to the individuals as well as to society as a whole.
