Adamu Abdullahi Gabra, Dr. Maheyzah Binti Sirat, Dr. Siti Hajar, Ibrahim Bukar Dauda.

Abstract
This paper reports the preliminary outcomes of a quantitative survey intended to identify
students' awareness and enthusiasm to learn cybersecurity in Nigerian Universities. The objective of the survey
was to see how students in this developing country are mindful of cyber-attacks and how they can mitigate the
attacks and to find out if the cybersecurity awareness program is among the University program. The
preliminary results indicated that the students claimed to have basic cybersecurity knowledge, but are not well
informed of how to protect their data. It also seems that most Universities do not have an active cybersecurity
awareness program to improve students' knowledge on how to protect themselves from any threats. The
surveyed students also show interest in learning more about cybersecurity.

Key words: cybersecurity awareness, Two-factor authentication, Password Management
