Software that prevents normal use of computers and carries out illegal actions causing harm spreads at a pace of about 3 million programs per month, and the threat related to information security is becoming more and more serious. In addition, the number of victimized children caused by incidents on the Internet has been increasing every year.

In response to such social phenomena, in the curriculum which will be newly implemented starting from 2020 an emphasis has been placed on the contents of learning about information morals and security in junior high school classes related to technology/home economics (technical field) as well as to computer science.

According to previous research, studies on teaching methods regarding information morals and security and beginning of school year surveys have been sufficiently conducted. However, it was found that no surveys have been conducted when all studies at junior high schools are completed.

Therefore, in this research, we have conducted a fact-finding survey of the scale of 1,000 students at the time of their graduation from junior high school with an aim of understanding the current situation and problems of teaching about information morals and security at the stage of completion of compulsory education.

As a result of the fact-finding survey, it became clear that there is a lack of knowledge on the means of insuring information security.
