The exchange of information is a key factor in the daily use of technology. Studies in computer security education, awareness-raising, and training among college students are limited. Most of the research focuses on computer security standards and guidance in organizational contexts. Few studies have analyzed the predictors of the adoption of computer security practices by college students. The objective of this research is to explore information security awareness among higher education students and exam key variables that are influencing this behavior. A total of 180 questionnaires were collected from undergraduate students at Aldar University College and analyzed using the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) technique. The findings revealed that perceived usefulness, subjective norms, self-efficacy, and the quality of the security system are found to have an important effect on student behavioral awareness of security. The findings of this research will help to develop a clear understanding of the factors that affect students’ security awareness behavior. The findings of the study can be used to either refute or strengthen the theories or framework that has been adopted. The findings might also contribute to the literature on security behavior and awareness in general. Findings suggest that the proposed research model is a valuable model for predicting students' attitudes towards information security and that their motivation is influenced by education in security awareness and understanding the severity of such issues. Moreover, the outcome of this research will lead to more awareness programs that can be used to promote privacy and security protection behaviors of information security.
