    Abstract

    This paper explains the main innovation of a risk assessment tool, called RISK-DET, which will include an ICT risk awareness aspect supported by a specific application: Voozio 2.0. The design of the RISK-DET tool considers the implementation of the emergent ICT (Information and Communication Technology) Risk Detection Skill (IRDS) concept. Today, the users’ inability to detect a risk situation is a real security problem and represents a societal challenge. According to the results of a security experiment based on a malicious smartphone application called Voozio 1.0, the main reason for this problem is the absence of effective ICT security awareness training programs adapted to users’ needs. To prove and confirm this hypothesis, we aim to evolve the Voozio application in the 2.0 version. This new version will be able to determine the ability of ICT users to detect a risk situation and improve it by combining cognitive sciences and education technologies. We will describe here the specifications of the new version of Voozio. We also present the Voozio 2.0 implementation framework.
