Abstract:This study investigates the relationship between the big five personality domains and the implementation of online security behaviours. Online security behaviours are preventive measures an individual can carry out in their day-to-day computer usage, such as strong and varying passwords or the use of an anti-malware program. The behaviours related to cyber-crime prevention are divided into three variables with the first one being a complete measure of online security behaviours, the second one being a measure related to cyber dependent crime and the third to cyber enabled crime. Additionally, the technological proficiency of respondents is assessed and investigated for an effect on online security behaviour. This was researched through an online survey. The personality construct of conscientiousness was found to be linked to the implementation of online security behaviour and technological pro-ficiency had a negative effect on the implementation of all three cyber-crime prevention measures.
