Information Security awareness has been an important vehicle in the acknowledgement, training and exposure of Information threats, vulnerabilities and attacks. This has brought about a large number of training programs and technical researches in order to make people aware of the dangers that haunt them in this computing world. The emergence of new technologies has had a twofold effect on the people that use them. Most technologies have brought a significant improvement as far as availability, processing and storage is concerned. However, the issue of security has been an obstacle in the full acceptance of the technologies and also user appreciation. Therefore this paper discusses the issues that are recently impacting Information Security Awareness in line with the current technological trends. It also aims at providing the best ways of alerting people on how to implement Information security measures in this current technological world and thereby building confidence in users. The paper will also delve into issues like social engineering, email attacks, Smartphone/ mobile attacks and social networks confidentiality.
