Cybersecurity Through the Eyes of Psychology
This presentation takes a look at how social engineering attacks work from a psychology perspective. Many cybersecurity issues are human problems, and human behaviour has been studied for longer than cybersecurity has existed as an industry. By understanding and explaining the drivers behind human behaviour, people and organizations can learn how to better protect themselves from attacks.
