The advent of the computer age has incited an increasing interest in the fundamental data sets that can now easily be stored and investigated. The introduction of computer network and internet bridges the communication barriers between millions of people hereby making security an inevitable issue to deal with. There are several aspects to security and many applications, ranging from secure commerce and payments to private communications and protecting of passwords. One essential aspect for secure communication is that of cryptography, the recent growth in business, education and communication of Ghana’s economy cause for a toughly cyber security education and awareness. Most Cyber-attacks are due to lack of education, awareness and users who ignore security practices. We propose to use a survey and experiment to create a model to improve the level of information security education and awareness in the country.
