AbstractMany threats to Information Security can be avoided if proper information security processes are in place. However, one can only counter threats effectively once sufficient knowledge about information security has been attained. Consequently proper information security awareness through education is necessary. The problem with information security education is that many people are not motivated to attend education sessions, study related material or participate in online courses. Educational games have been around for quite some time, although they have been limited to a narrow range of subject matter. This paper will introduce a current, in progress, research project which focuses on the development of a computer game to teach basic information security knowledge to learners.
