The awareness of cybersecurity and knowledge about risks from a variety of threats, which present harm or steal private information in internetworking could help in mitigation of vulnerabilities to risks of threats in safeguarding information from malware and bots. Revisiting cybersecurity awareness of every member and evaluation of organization’s posture might help to protect sensitive or private information from a network of computers, working together and forming into botnets. The purpose of the qualitative case study narrative was to explore prospects for integrating cybersecurity education into elementary school children’s curriculum through interviews of elementary schoolteachers, IT experts, and parents to gain feedback about perceptions on cybersecurity knowledge and awareness. The analysis of schools’ organizational security postures related to all levels of education, recommending in raising awareness of the underlying and unprecedented security vulnerabilities. One area of greatest need is in protecting the wellbeing of people in securing private or protected assets and sensitive information, most valuable and vulnerable amid disruption. The possible lack of cybersecurity awareness in online settings could increase an organizational vulnerability to risks of threats and outsider attempts to install malware during a variety of cyber-attacks. Organizations with online ambiguity face a threat from botnets to infect networks. This qualitative exploratory single case-study into perceptions of teachers and leaders, information technology (IT) experts, and parents of elementary school children about cybersecurity awareness level of children in elementary schools helped to reinforce the important role of education in building foundational cyber-safety practices.
