If students are not aware of the information security, they easily let others know their information or they use others` information with no sense of guilt. The information security education is necessary to protect and prevent students from cyber crime. However, South Korea`s information curriculum has no specific information security education course and it has led a school or teacher to teach contents of information ethics superficially. The purpose of this paper is to find the factors affecting the information security practice of the elementary school students. For an empirical analysis, questionnaire survey was conducted and the Partial Least Square(PLS) was used to analyze the research model. The analysis results show that the information ethics awareness and the information security awareness have a positive impact on the information security practice. The results of this study are expected to help choose the specific information security curriculum required for the information security practice of elementary school students.
