This study was designed to compare pre-service teachers’ attitudes to those of general computer end-users on taking proactive measures to prevent cyber crime. Nineteen pre-service teachers, enrolled in a three-credit technology course in 2009, completed a survey instrument created by the researchers to analyze perceptions of Information Assurance (IA) and cyber security. The findings indicated a lack of best practices in IA that was no different from that of general computer end-users to protect personal electronic information.
