Information technology has changed organisational processes significantly. However, information security is still a controversial issue among experts in this domain. Information security breaches lead to loss of reputation, competitive advantages, intellectual properties, productivity, and revenue and in the worst scenario leads to bankruptcy. In this regard, awareness plays a vital role to mitigate information security threats. This study aims to present different threats that effect confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, pertaining to administrative employees, in an integrated and informative design, based on a review of literature. In addition, a possible interactive visual library is proposed, through a proof of concept that contributes to administrative employees' information security awareness. The results shed some light on this information security awareness issue, and provides the means for further academic study.
