The lack of understanding of cyber security among Internet users has caused many people in the country to become victims of cyber crime syndicates. Furthermore, many Internet users have ignored the principles of internet safety and consider it as a fiddling matter.

Thus, this study analyses the social environment factors for cyber security of Internet users, of which five factors has been taken into consideration, namely, parental guidance, peer-to-peer influences, workplace roles, mass media roles and government policies.
