Cybersecurity and Cognitive Science provides the reader with multiple examples of interactions between cybersecurity, psychology and neuroscience. Specifically, reviewing current research on cognitive skills of network security agents (e.g., situational awareness) as well as individual differences in cognitive measures (e.g., risk taking, impulsivity, procrastination, among others) underlying cybersecurity attacks. Chapters on detection of network attacks as well as detection of cognitive engineering attacks are also included. This book also outlines various modeling frameworks, including agent-based modeling, network modeling, as well as cognitive modeling methods to both understand and improve cybersecurity.
- Outlines cognitive modeling within cybersecurity problems
- Reviews the connection between intrusion detection systems and human psychology
- Discusses various cognitive strategies for enhancing cybersecurity
- Summarizes the cognitive skills of efficient network security agents, including the role of situational awareness
