Abstract

In this era of globalization, security issues become important especially in a public network and Internet users significantly increased every single day. Most users are unaware of
potential security issues such as malware and data exploitation when they use the Internet. Users with IT literate are considered fully aware of these Internet security issues. However, the reality indicates not all IT literate users are fully aware of the security issues. Hence, a study was conducted to prove whether people with IT literacy have higher awareness compared to people with non-IT literacy when it comes to security awareness. This paper is to study the level of awareness among students on security issues based on the Knowledge, Skill and Ability (KSA) model. As a case study, the survey was distributed among students in the UTeM campus network. A quantitative study was conducted, and a structured questionnaire has been designed and distributed among students. The variables were focused on these three (3) aspects. The finding shows the relationship between KSA with the
level of awareness among students has been revealed. From the result, Knowledge is the most significant aspect that contributes to high awareness. For the future, a study about increasing students' knowledge about security should be addressed.
