Most efforts to improve cyber security focus primarily on incorporating new technological approaches in products and processes. However, a key element of improvement involves acknowledging the importance of human behavior when designing, building and using cyber security technology. In this survey paper, we describe why incorporating an understanding of(More)
To explore the effectiveness of embedded training, researchers conducted a large-scale experiment that tracked workers' reactions to a series of carefully crafted spear phishing emails and a variety of immediate training and awareness activities. Based on behavioral science findings, the experiment included four different training conditions, each of which(More)
Usable security assumes that when security functions are more usable, people are more likely to use them, leading to an improvement in overall security. Existing software design and engineering processes provide little guidance for leveraging this in the development of applications. Three case studies explore organizational attempts to provide usable(More)
