We talk of an individual's security awareness as "high" or "low".
Recently, I waited for a friend at a locked entrance to his place of work. A carpenter (who - unlike me - had legitimate access) arrived, opened the door, and gave me that "aren't you going to follow me"-look when I remained outside, waiting for my friend.
This guy exhibited a polite, friendly attitude. He also displayed cluelessness on how to handle his access card.
Actively inviting risk - is that a case of negative security awareness?

A city is a complex organism. Keeping its wheels ticking is a challenge in normal circumstances. What about a crisis? In the face of pandemics, flooding, or even attack - how can a megacity like London become resilient? Samverkan Stockholm of the County Administrative Board hosted a seminar where London Resilience presented their work and the recent Exercise Unified Response. My main takeaway was about a learning culture among actors. Sharing is a capability. Collaboration will not happen without trust.
Sweden has enjoyed peace for centuries. how does that affect attitudes and capabilities in situational awareness and Crisis Mgmt? #SSRsem16— per stromsjo (@stromsjo) 18 oktober 2016
