Human perceptions, when expressed in natural language, are subjective and vague, and result to the same words indicating different perceptions. Fuzzy sets and fuzzy numbers are efficient tools in describing linguistic variables, especially where personal understandings and perceptions are taken into consideration. Moreover, computer and information security is and always has been fuzzy, and therefore, when assessing security related topics, it is appropriate to use tools designed to deal with fuzziness. In this study, first we have measured the awareness of HIS users via questionnaire, where responses are collected on a 5-point Likert scale. In order to enable the analysis; the linguistic expressions given on the scale are converted to fuzzy numbers, depending on the level of required security in health information systems (HIS). By using fuzzy logic, the subjective judgments have been removed and the linguistic expressions have been modeled accordingly.
