...and now for another Human Factors Minute! Did you know that the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society has 24 technical groups that are concerned with the human factors aspects of specific application areas? One of those is the Cybersecurity Technical Group. The CYBERSECURITY TECHNICAL GROUP (CYTG) was established to serve HFES members and nonmembers who share an interest in studying humans in the context of cyberspace, cybersecurity, and information security (InfoSec). promoting the study and observation of how human interaction effects any facet of cybersecurity, and at any level in the system, from end-users of email to military cyber defense teams. Cybersecurity human factors includes the scientific application of all human factors and cognitive as well as emotive concepts, including awareness, workload, stress, teaming, signal detection, decision-making, and attention research. Cybersecurity can be understood as a highly complex socio-technical system. The purview spans studies of end-user security and privacy (where improving the interactions of humans with software and hardware tools will improve security and reduce the likelihood of successful attacks), to the operations of corporate and national multi-person-teams of cyberspace defenders, as well as the offensive components.
