The objective of this work was to explore the dimensions of risk perception, considering the sociological categories of territorial, national, public, citizen, private and Internet security. A cross-sectional and psychometric study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 100 students from a public university who participated in civil protection campaigns. An exploratory factorial structure of four factors was established with their respective indicators that explained 79% of the total variance, although the research design limited these findings to the research scenario, suggesting the extension of the work towards the relationships between the perceptual structure of risk with respect to a decision structure and risk behaviors.
