Abstract:

The broad use of information systems within organizations has led to an increased appreciation of the need to ensure that all users be aware of basic concepts in Information Assurance IA. The Department of Defense DOD addressed the idea of user awareness in DOD Directive 8750.1. This directive requires that all users of DOD information systems undergo an initial IA awareness orientation followed by annual refresher instruction. This thesis created a CyberCIEGE campaign for the Naval Postgraduate Schools CyberCIEGE project that will fulfill Navy requirements to meet DOD Directive 8750.1. The first portion of this thesis is an analysis of four IA programs and products. Requirements for Navy IA awareness and training products were developed from this analysis. The second part of this thesis is a description of two CyberCIEGE scenarios that were created to fulfill these requirements. The first scenario focuses on basic IA awareness and emphasizes information that the Navy should reinforce. The scenario is intended for all users of Navy information systems. The second scenario is intended for technical users and addresses more advanced concepts and technical considerations. The technical user scenario emphasizes skill application and problem solving.
