Information security awareness online : A quantitative comparison between Sweden and Israel (English)
Abstract [en]

The increasing amount of information on the internet entails an increasing need for privacy protection. Information security is becoming a vital part of everyday lives due to digitization. There has been relatively little research on information security awareness, especially from a cultural, age- and knowledge perspective. This study aims to examine and to gain knowledge about information security awareness of users and their view of privacy online. By replicating the method of an israeli research paper by Halperin and Dror (2016), a comparison between Israel and Sweden is possible. Data were collected through surveys and the results show differences and similarities between Sweden and Israel. In particular when looking at age and knowledge. 

Abstract [sv]

Den ökade mängden information på internet medför ett ökat behov gällande skyddandet av den personliga integriteten. Digitaliseringen gör att informationssäkerhet blir en vital del av vardagen. Det finns relativt lite forskning om medvetenheten kring informationssäkerhet, ur ett kulturellt, ålders- och kunskapsperspektiv. Den här studien har haft som avsikt att undersöka och få en förståelse för internetanvändares medvetenhet kring informationssäkerhet samt hur de ser på personlig integritet på internet. Studiens metod bygger på en israelisk undersökning av Halperin och Dror (2016). Metodiken har replikerats för att möjliggöra en jämförelse mellan Israel och Sverige. Studiens empiri har samlats in via enkäter. Resultaten visar på att det finns skillnader och likheter mellan Sverige och Israel, framför allt ålders- och kunskapsmässigt.
