Arash Ghazvini, Zarina Shukur

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper aims to develop an information security awareness training program for the healthcare industry to ensure the appropriate protection of electronic health systems. Serious games are primarily designed for training purposes rather than pure entertainment. Serious games are proven as an effective training approach for awareness programs. Serious games benefit learning as the games are fun to play and motivate learners to participate and interact with learning activities. Developing a serious game requires the revision of adequate guidelines that identify all characteristics to be incorporated in such games. Thus, this paper reviews serious game models that have been constructed as game development guidelines. To this end, a serious game is developed and implemented at a selected healthcare organization.
