This dataset consists of quantitative data collection that was done and used in a Master's dissertation titled "Empirical investigation of the determinants of cybersecurity behaviour among South Africans". The dataset contains the respondents answers to the online questionnaire that was conducted from 1 February 2022 to 15 March 2022. The dataset measured respondents answers in relation to eight factors that were measured (Behavioural Intention, attitude towards good cybersecurity behaviour, subjective norms, self-efficacy, perceived severity, perceived vulnerability, response efficacy, and response cost). Under each factor, there are multiple questionnaire items, which were developed and guided by previous studies. The dataset uses the five-point Likert Scale, where one is strongly disagree and five is strongly agree.
