Human error and negligence still contribute to a significant portion of security incidents. Current approaches to mitigating the risks associated with human error and negligence are failing to have the desired impact.

Attackers are more successful than ever at manipulating behaviour to meet their nefarious goals. Organisations need to understand the behaviour that causes these incidents and take proactive steps to reduce risk. A robust human-centred security programme is required.

The human-centred security research series aims to tackle this problem by leveraging existing psychological theory to understand the underlying reasons behind behaviour and then identifies emerging initiatives to enhance security.
