Applying the Science of Human Behavior to Cybersecurity

Wait Just an Infosec • 2023-11-01

Applying psychological principles to educating end users about cybersecurity is nothing new; security awareness teams have long relied on behavioral science to influence best practices.  But “cyberpsychology” as a unique discipline is having a moment, and its implications go far beyond Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Join us for this episode of Wait Just an Infosec. SANS’s Rich Greene moderate's a discussion with Juliet Okafor, JD, and Stacy Thayer, PhD, MBA, and answer questions like:

  • What is cyberpsychology?
  • How can it make security teams better at everything from monitoring SIEM logs to conducting large-scale incident response?
  • How can you leverage the knowledge of this emerging field?

After, you’ll get to hear from Black Girls Hack Founder Tennisha Martin and COO Rebekah Skeete on tips to prevent phishing - brought to you by #ShareTheMicInCyber
