Information security (IS) has been categorized as protecting the confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication and accountability of information. There is a gap between what companies and institutions plan to do while developing their internal IS-related policies and what it should be done according to a system perspective in this area. Our task as researchers is to bridge this gap by offering potential solutions. The aim of our work is to promote the usage of a socio-technical systems (STS) approach to support the emerging role of systems thinking in cyber security education using simulation as a supporting tool for the learning. Meanwhile, new trends in cyber security curricula suggest an important shift towards new thinking approaches to be used, such as systems thinking.
