IT security expert’s presentation is one of the most advocated strategies to improve end-users’ information security aware behaviour. However, no systematic evaluation has yet been reported in the IT literature to comprehensively evaluate the effectiveness of this strategy. To address this gap, a theory driven instrument was developed to evaluate the effectiveness of IT security expert’s presentation for enhancing the attitudes of end-users towards engaging in information security aware behaviour. The findings, which confirm a positive influence of IT security expert’s presentation strategy, can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of other educational strategies.
