Abstract

There has been an alarming rise in the number of cyber crimes occurring lately and stealthier methodologies used by attackers, which has directly contributed to the rise of online victims. With the development of advanced persistent threats, current cyber security defense mechanisms also face a high failure rate in detecting and preventing exploitation of cyber security threats from occurring. This research provides a solution to tackle the issues pertaining to the lack of awareness on the importance of cyber security. This paper presents an improved approach that incorporates three distinct features: an ethical hacking toolkit, a cyber security awareness game, and an educational platform. These components are integrated together as a complete project to spread awareness on the importance of cyber security elements in our everyday lives.
