Fear and Loathing in Cybersecurity: An Analysis of the Psychology of Fear

Posted on in Presentations

For too long, the cybersecurity industry has attempted to use FUD to engage with the human element. This engaging talk will draw on extensive research in the sociology and psychology of fear, as well as real-world case studies, to explain why we can’t simply scare people into security, but how we can harness human bias to have a more positive impact on cybersecurity awareness, behavior and culture.

Pre-Requisites: No prerequisite knowledge is required; this session will be interesting and informative for anyone working in cybersecurity interested in the human element.
