Abstract

End users are frequently criticised as the sources of bad security practice, and it is suggested they might take the issue more seriously if they experienced a breach. An option for enabling this would be for security administrators to deliberately create conditions and situations that provide first-hand demonstrations to targeted users. Such approaches are referred to as scare tactics.
