Download the briefing paper

Human-centred security starts with understanding humans and their interaction with technologies, controls and data. By discovering how and when humans ‘touch’ data throughout the working day, organisations can uncover the circumstances where psychological-related errors may lead to security incidents.

This briefing paper will help professionals to:

  • Understand how psychological vulnerabilities in humans can lead to errors in decision making
  • Identify methods and techniques used by attackers to exploit psychological vulnerabilities
  • Manage psychological vulnerabilities to improve information security.
