Using Bloom’s Taxonomy for Information Security Education

Abstract : The importance of educating organizational end users about their roles and responsibilities towards information security is widely acknowledged. However, many current user education programs have been created by security professionals who do not necessarily have an educational background. This paper show how the use of learning taxonomies, specifically Bloom’s taxonomy, can improve such educational programs. It is the authors belief that proper use of this taxonomy will assist in ensuring the level of education is correct for the intended target audience.
